Flinders is a veritable treasure chest filled with exotic marine life. You’ll find everything from migratory sea birds, dolphins, seals and gannets to shearwaters, abalone and crayfish. For the adventurous there’s scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing, boat charters, surfing and just about anything else you can do in, on or under the water.
With over 50 mostly uninhabited islands in the Furneaux Group, more than 65 shipwrecks and over 120 pristine beaches on Flinders Island alone, there are any number of reasons for visiting Flinders Island.
Relax and unwind amid the tranquility of one of Australia’s idyllic natural settings, fanned by intoxicantingly fresh breezes direct from the sparkling waters of Bass Strait.
Everywhere you look there are stunning views – from the sea boiling over the reefs, the scattering of islands in the tidal stream and the ancient peaks, to the jaw-dropping sunrises that will stay imprinted in your mind forever.
Fishermen – welcome to Nirvana!
The ‘catch of the day’ is yours for the taking, whether it’s flathead, trevally, salmon, calamari or any of the thousand odd species on offer. Just pick up some bait from the pub or Killiecrankie Enterprises, wander over to Whitemark wharf and try your luck for some squid or trevally. Salmon Rocks, at the eastern end of Trousers Point beach is also a good spot for kingfish or leatherjacket off the rocks.
