The Island is filled with local characters willing to show you every nook and cranny of this stunning island. Not only will you see Flinders in all its raw beauty, you’ll also gain a true insight into the life of an Islander… usually over a few drinks. Chances are you’ll make a friend for life.
When climbing to the summit of Mt. Strzelecki, prepare to be awestruck by the stunning views. The mountain was named after the Polish explorer, Paul Edmund Strzelecki who visited Flinders Island and climbed the highest peak in 1842. The Strzelecki National Park, which is approximately 7,414 hectares, has only two trails – one going to the top of the highest peak and one along the rocky headlands of Trousers Point. The rest of the area is bushland hiding many great surprises.
The most spectacular way to see the region is by air. Take a scenic trip over the bay, the islands and many shipwrecks throughout the area with one of our charter plane operators – Flinders Island Aviation. You can also charter a helicopter and pop in to one of our sister islands for lunch.
