Alternatively ferry your own vehicle with Furneaux Freight, a roll-on roll-off ferry which departing from Bridport in Tasmania. There is very little traffic on the Island and most places are only a half hour drive, slow down your on island time and don’t forget to WAVE!
Flinders Island’s hidden beauty lies with the good natured locals who will make you feel at home. You only have to learn the ‘island wave’. There’s ‘the one-fingered wave’… used to greet visitors. ‘The long-time no see wave’, ‘The horizontal wave’ for people you like and the one for those you don’t. Then there’s the ‘truck driver’s wave’, ‘The fisherman’s wave’… The ‘see you at the pub’ wave… The ‘my shout… no it’s your shout’ wave. So please don’t be too surprised by the ‘island wave’ when visiting this piece of paradise. Embrace it and enjoy the old- school gesture.
