ABOUT THIS REGION Flinders Island is located in Bass Strait, 20km off mainland Tasmania's north-east coast and offers the ultimate escape with peace and quiet, natural beauty and plenty of local attractions. 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 and even fossicking for 'Killiecrankie diamonds'. Beyond the green rolling hills of farmland, there's also a world of natural wonders to explore, from the pristine coastline to the rugged pink and grey granite mountain ranges of the Strzelecki National Park, not to mention plants and animals found nowhere else on earth. Visitors to the island can camp in the wilderness, relax in luxury at a seaside resort or stay at a local farm or friendly Bed and Breakfast. There's plenty of good quality produce to enjoy with locally grown meats, freshly caught seafood, fresh fruits and vegetables and wines, as well as art and craft made from locally-sourced materials. Flinders Island is a special place and offers a refreshing break from the real world. Regular flights to Flinders Island leave from Launceston, Tasmania or Moorabbin, Victoria. The island can also be reached by ferry from Bridport in Tasmania and Port Welshpool in Victoria.
