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.
Other events to keep an eye out for are
Flinders Flicks Film Festival,
Flinders Island Quick Shear in December 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.
