Flinders Island

A little-known island in the northeast of Tasmania, Flinders isn’t that big, but it’s got loads of outdoor adventures, stacks of gourmet treats and plenty of beauty to offer.

As one of 52 islands in the Furneaux Group in the windy Roaring Forties corner of the Bass Strait, Flinders Island isn’t high on most tourists’ must-do lists. And that’s hard to believe because it has a spectacular coastline with hidden bays, clear waters and impressive, colourful rocks. Hiking, scuba diving, kayaking and 4WD-ing are excellent ways to explore it all.
