Flinders Island is the largest in the Furneaux Group of islands which are located off Tasmania’s northeastern corner in the Bass Strait. Known by locals as ‘Mountains in the Sea’ the island group is the remains of a land bridge which once connected Tasmania to mainland Australia.
At nearly 1400 square kilometres Flinders Island is quite large and yet the population is only around 1000. It’s a beautiful and pristine natural environment rich in wildlife with many rare species of plants and animals – the birdlife, in particular, is amazing.
Most visitors come for the walking, hiking and the breathtaking scenery. Luxury accommodation is available in the few small settlements dotted along Highway 855 which mainly follows the eastern coastline. There’s also a museum dedicated to the islands’ past whaling industry, a golf course, diving, snorkelling, fishing, quad-biking and photography tours. Amazingly fresh seafood is available, along with packed lunches for walkers.
