The best way to see Flinders and get a true insight into ‘island life’ is with an Islander. With just a little local knowledge you’ll be armed and ready to explore everything the Island has to offer. And there are plenty of activities to enjoy all year round, from walking, fishing and bird watching to combing miles of deserted beaches and fossicking for sea shells and precious gems.
Getting here is part of the fun! Your visit to Flinders Island starts with a scenic flight from Melbourne (1 hour) or from Launceston, Tasmania (35 mintues) across Bass Strait with Sharp Airlines or charter your own aircraft or catch the weekly barge with Furneaux Freight from Bridport, Tasmania docking in the all-tides port of Lady Barron.
Local produce is well represented at the supermarkets in both Lady Barron and Whitemark. Muttonbirds and fresh fish are available from Flinders Island Meats.
Try the local ‘Fish of the Day’ in the Shearwater Restaurant at the Furneaux Tavern or sample the local wallaby at the Interstate Hotel.
