Boomer Island is a tied island in the south east region of Tasmania, Australia. It is known for a large castle built upon it and is owned by Gunter Jaeger, a businessman.[1][2]

Tenure[edit]

The landmass is Crown land from the high-water mark to 30 metres inland. The landlocked parcel of land within this crown land is privately owned.

Geography[edit]

An artificial tombolo connects the landmass to the mainland in Boomer Bay, which itself lies within Blackman Bay.

The island can be seen in several public photographs.[3][4]
