Both accommodations are centrally located and a short drive to all the amazing beaches and coastlines here on Flinders Island.
Whether you feel the urge to fossik, fish, swim, or tackle a mountain there is always plenty to do on our unique island.
Here's a list of our favourite local destinations to give you an idea of the variety and beauty of the Furneaux Islands.
- Killiecrankie Bay - is famous for its Killiecrankie diamonds. This little haven is also perfect for a picnic and romantic stroll along the beach.
- Trousers Point - is the most popular beach on Flinders Island. It's the one place you can be guaranteed to find a bbq that is sheltered from the notorious roaring forties.
- Patriachs Wildlife Sanctuary - is the island's only wildlife sanctuary. It is home to wallabies, wombats, possums and a variety of birds, including the native Cape Barren Goose (see picture bottom left). Kids can pat the friendly wildlife and feed them straight from the hand.
- Wybalenna - Flinders Island is steeped in Aboriginal history and none greater than Wybalenna Chapel. It's the oldest building on the island and has an indigenous graveyard only metres from the chapel.
- Mt Strzelecki - is part of the famous Three Peaks Race, a sailing event held every Easter. This mountain stands 800 metres above sea level and is a great challenge for walkers of all fitness levels.
- Camerons Inlet and the East Coast - this is the nearest beach to Echo Hills and stretches for miles in either direction. It is also renowned for its surf fishing; locals often catch shark and flathead right off the shore. So grab a rod, and have a go.
- Palana Beach - is the most northern beach on Flinders Island and is a popular holiday destination for both locals and visitors. Enjoy the soft rolling waves, bbq facilities, and golden sand.
- Outer Islands - there are 56 islands scattered across the north eastern tip of Tasmania, part of the Furneaux Group of which Flinders Island is the largest. We have some great local boat charters that will take you to these deserted islands. There also hundreds of shipwrecks scattered on the ocean floor, remnants of the pioneer days. The famous Continental Shelf provides you with some of the biggest and tastiest fish in Australia. And, if you come at the right time of year, you'll be able to witness thousands of muttonbirds (Shearwaters) flying into the sunset. An incredibly unique sight.
