This remote, windswept and starkly beautiful island off the north-eastern coast of Tasmania boasts rugged landscapes, granite peaks, pristine beaches and headlands of granite boulders encrusted with orange lichen. The best way to experience the isolation of Flinders Island is to take a hike. There’s an easy walk available from our landing spot at Trouser’s Point or for the fit take a hike in Strzelecki National Park. Wildlife is plentiful and includes wallabies, pademelons (sometimes referred to as the rufous wallaby), wombats, echidnas, and bird life that is rich and varied. Wybalenna on Flinders Island is infamous for being the site of the last colony of Tasmanian Aborigines and we’ll learn more of this sad chapter in Australia’s history.
