Walk 28 in the Walks of Flinders Island book. This beach walk is an excellent finale to a stay on Flinders Island. If it is at all possible arrange to leave your luggage at the airport prior to departure.
After leaving the hire vehicle is town – Whitemark – proceed to the wharf area and jump a fence to gain access to the beach or alternatively walk North along the made road for about 100 metres until you can gain access to the beach. At low or high tide the sand at Whitemark beach is coarse and the going can be a little arduous. In summer be sure to take sun protection and water as there is little shelter. Take in the character of the island along these shores and the scenic backdrop of the outer island to the West. Using your Tasmap as a guide pick up the asphalter Bluff Road as you turn into the final straight before arriving at the Airport. The wind in the Casuarina tree always makes for a lasting impression of the uniqueness and tranquillity of Flinders Island!
