Located in eastern Bass Strait, Flinders Island is the largest of a chain of islands that once formed the land bridge between Tasmania and Wilsons Promontory in Victoria. Lying on latitude 40 degrees south, Flinders is 80 kilometres long and 40 kilometres w ide, with a backbone of granite peaks stretching from north to south. The island offers some of the best walking you’ ll find any where. Popular walks include the climb to Mt Strzelecki, Trousers Point to Fotheringate Bay, Emita to Castle Rock and the Lady Barron coastal walk to Yellow Beach. There are long gleaming beaches and bays where the only footprints in the sand will be yours. You’ll find abundant wildlife in the bushland and rich birdlife in the coastal wetlands. Flinders Island ’s growers and producers create a great selection of local specialties – lamb, fish, abalone, wallaby and honey to name a few. Sydney and Melbourne restaurants follow the seasons with products from the island. Flinders Island milk lamb featured recently on the SBS Italian Food Safari and SBS will again highlight the island’s food products on the next series of the Gourmet Farmer, scheduled for October this year. It’s an island of history and heritage with a strong Aboriginal footprint. There are more than 65 shipwrecks around the coast, each with a story to tell. A visit to the Furneaux Museum at Emita and the hauntingly sorrowful Wybalenna histor ical site are just some of the places to learn about times past. It’s an island when each season is special – the fresh vigour of spring, bursting with colour and new life; summer’s long afternoons and lazy days at the beach; calm, cloudless days of autumn, with mirror seas and golden light; and winter’s clarity of light and wild seascapes. In any season, it’s a photographers delight. It’s an island for adventure, w ith great bushwalking, snorkelling, gemstone fossicking, surfing, fishing, bike riding, kayaking, diving and rock climbing. Flinders is on Tasmania’s doorstep – come and discover its friendly people, relaxing lifestyle and sensational scener y.
