jewel of the north ...

For most visitors to the north of Flinders Island today, Killiecrankie is their first stop. This dramatic section of coastline is framed by the sculptured granite range that stands guard over the northern edge of the bay.

This view above from 1938 was taken at a time when the bay was a remote outpost on the island and home to just a handful of crayfishermen and their families.

With the roads into the area being little more than bush tracks back then, most people's first impressions of Mount Killiecrankie came from offshore. This sketch from an 1800s marine chart shows how striking the view into Killiecrankie Bay is when approaching by boat.
