Flinders Island is busy welcoming visitors …
As Flinders Island welcomes visitors from the mainland, we want to protect the welfare of the island’s 1,000+ residents and its numerous visitors. For this reason, there are some specific responsibilities that all travellers need to consider prior to arrival. For further details
We are on Island time, so not everything is open 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. So be prepared before you go.
Welcome to Flinders Island, one of 52 islands in the Furneaux Group dotted across Bass Strait, north-east of Tasmania. She’s as spectacularly wild and rugged as the people are warm and welcoming, and like her location, the experience is truly unique.
Are you ready to get away from it all and experience the adventure of a lifetime? When you set foot on Flinders Island you step into an awe-inspiring world of sparkling beaches, rugged ranges, abundant wildlife, flora and clear sapphire waters. Discover the jagged mountains that jut from the wild ocean like giant sea creatures proudly presenting their bounty to all and sundry. These remarkable ‘mountains in the sea’ offer a rare experience you won’t find anywhere else on earth.
With just a little local knowledge you’ll be armed and ready to explore everything the island has to offer. And there are plenty of activities to enjoy all year round, from walking, fishing and bird watching to combing miles of deserted beaches and fossicking for sea shells and precious gems.
