i lived in yurt for a year in the rain forest on an island. i took the ferry to the island, drove on a paved road part of the way, drove on a dirt road the next part of the way, and the final section i hiked in on a path in the rain forest. i had a small pit toilet which i dug and kept a bucket of ash to sprinkle after using. the ash was from the tiny wood stove which i used to heat my yurt. there was no running water, i brought in jugs of water from when i drove to town. there was no electricity. i cooked my food on a small one burner propane camping stove.

it was a wonderful year. my yurt was 14 feet across (circular shape). i spent a lot of time sitting in the rocking chair in front of my tiny wood stove. and walking in the rain forest. i had a deluxe bed which my friend built out of felled trees from her own land, she also lived on the same island, and had built her own straw bale house. i hand made the hearth for my tiny wood stove and hand laid bits of tile and rock. it was adorable. when I moved out of state, i sold my yurt to the friend who had made the log bed, and now the yurt resides on her land with the straw bale house she built, the frame house she built, the tee-pee she lived in for awhile, and now my yurt too.

so those are not really remote. but they are wilderness experiences i have had living there.

Didn't set foot on the island but Pitcairn Island where supplies were delivered by ship. Otherwise possibly Easter Island, although hard to state that with so many tourists.

Loads of places in Australia feel very remote. Some parts really do feel like the end of the world.
