Much of the Furneaux region is a mixture of natural bushland and rural land. With an environment respected by our small population, the islands have a diversity of native animals from Bennetts, Pademelon and Potoroo wallabies to possums, wombats and echidnas.
The best way to really connect with the land is by foot. Luckily there’s something to suit everybody from two-hour walks to extended camping treks such as the Cape Barren circuit.
Being a diamond in the rough herself, it’s no surprise Flinders is home to the beautiful topaz known as the ‘Killiecrankie Diamond’. Hire a sieve and shovel from Killiecrankie Enterprises in Whitemark and who knows, you could be taking home more than just rare memories.
Flinders is an island made for adventure, offering a range of activities from kayaking, mountain biking and rock climbing to golf, bowls and clay shooting at the local sports club and RSL.
The Flinders locals are a creative and resourceful lot and you can see the fruits of their labour at Whitemark and Lady Barron. Recycled driftwood, roasted coffee, local honeys, wines, homemade soaps and handmade arts and crafts are all on show, giving you a peak in to the heart and soul of Flinders.
