Flinders Island

Wombats, wallabies and echidnas abound in this pristine island wilderness. Its beaches are long and secluded, its waters azure and its history fascinating. Despite being very secluded, the stunning hideaway of Flinders Island has many activities. Hike in the beautiful wilderness of the Strzelecki National Park, taste local wines at the Unavale Vineyard, discover the island’s natural history at the Furneaux Museum, relax on pristine beaches and spot wombats, wallabies and echidnas at the Patriarch Sanctuary.

Walk through the beautiful and diverse landscapes of the Strzelecki National Park, from the beaches at Trousers Point and Fotheringate Bay, to the challenging uphill hike to Strzelecki Peak. From the peak enjoy incredible views over the park and over the Tasman to other area islands known as the “Roaring Forties.”

Get close to Tasmania’s wildlife when you camp on a bunk in Patriarch Wildlife Sanctuary. Experience the forests, granite landscapes, marsh lands and lagoons that provide habitats for Cape Barren geese, wallabies and wombats.

Visit Settlement Point for even more wildlife. At nightfall, watch the swarming mutton birds as they fly out from their colony of burrows.

Learn about the island’s natural history at the Furneaux Museum and discover the stories of seal hunters, shipwrecks and soldier settlers who lived here. The exhibits are housed in the old school and police cells dating from the early 20th century.

Unavale Vineyard, the only winery on the island, produces sauvignon blanc and riesling. Wander amid the vines on a vineyard tour before heading to the Furneaux Tavern overlooking Franklin Sound for a meal of local produce paired with the Unavale wines.

Reach Flinders Island by plane from Melbourne or Launceston or by ferry from Briport. The island is 62 kilometres (39 miles) long. With so much wilderness, history and coastline to explore it’s easiest to get around by car. Bring your car by ferry, rent a car on the island or take an island taxi.

Enjoy Flinders’ vistas at a slower pace by bicycle. Bring your own or rent one at one of the island’s accommodation or camping equipment stores.
