The Island

Flinders Island

Flinders Island is located off mainland Tasmania's north-east coast and offers visitors the opportunity to escape and explore its natural beauty, local produce and peace and quiet.

Flinders is the largest of the Furneaux Group of 52 islands and offers a range of great experiences - from walking beautiful, long, deserted beaches and lazy scenic drives to fishing, golfing, diving.

There's also a world of natural wonders to explore, from the pristine coastline, to the rugged grey and pink granite mountain ranges of the Strzelecki National Park, and plants and animals found nowhere else on earth.

At the most recent census in 2016 there were 906 people who lived on Flinders and Cape Barren Islands. Whitemark is the main settlement on the island, and also hosts the island's primary airport. There are also townships at Lady Barron, Emita and Killiecrankie.

The stunning natural environment is well-protected, with the Strzelecki National Park and numerous conservation areas along the length of the island. The majority of the rural island land utilised for agricultural primary production, with sheep and wool production, cattle grazing and fishing (crayfish, abalone and scale fish) operations producing some of the finest produce you are likely to find.

Tourism is of course an important industry for the island, with the setting providing a spectacular backdrop, and the locals adding a warm and friendly welcome.
