Immerse yourself in ‘island life’ by getting involved in the many community events on offer. It’s the best way to get to know the local characters, meet the producers, taste some of the world’s best produce and revel in the many sporting and cultural festivals.
The third weekend in January is the Furneaux Islands Festival which celebrates island community, culture, food and music with a series of events of three days.

The first weekend in September there is the Flinders Island Running Festival featuring the 26km half marathon Pub-to-Pub run and the 5km fun run/walk.

The middle of October sees the annual Flinders Island Show with both local and off-island exhibitors.

Other events to keep an eye out for are
Flinders Flicks Film Festival and Whitemark Weekly ParkRun.

Also see the Flinders Council Community Events App for more information. The Council operates an active School Holiday Program open to locals and visitors.
