Flinders locals are proud of the rich bounty of wild and natural tastes available on the island. And who could blame them? Succulent abalone is hand plucked from the ocean, giant crayfish practically lands on your lap while plump lamb, beef, wallaby, seasonal fruits, veggies, honey and boutique wines are the envy of the world.

Whether it’s the natural bounty or the prized salt-grass pastures, it’s a gastronome’s heaven on earth. The Southern Rock Lobster (crayfish) season begins in November and closes in September. Due to the commercial crayfish quota that is normally available for Flinders having all been fished out for this season, access to commercially caught crayfish on the Island will be difficult to find. Fortunately, this does not stop individuals from catching their own. For those interested in fishing for lobster, abalone, scallops… please check the fishing regulations

Happy Hour on Wednesday nights at the Furneaux Tavern in Lady Barron is worth a visit to enjoy the locals in their element and for your chance to win the Meat Raffle.
