Wildlife and Wildflowers

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.

Our islands also have a spellbinding array of wildflowers, which are easily accessible whether you’re travelling by road or exploring one of our many walking tracks. The most beautiful of these plants are our shy bush and rock orchids, attracting botanists from around Australia such is their allure.
