Any holiday on Flinders Island will have simplicity as its central theme. If you want to get close to nature, away from the maddening crowd and to be in an environment that has not been spoilt by industry, there would be few places better to visit.
On Flinders Island there is plenty to do and see. It is also a great place to unwind for those who just want to escape the stresses of modern living and perhaps do a bit of fishing or play a round of golf. (the 9-hole golf course has only been parred once in its 40 year history). However, the real joy of holidaying on Flinders Island is that you can relax, do nothing, lie in the sun, go fishing or just walk along miles of beaches. For families, the Furneaux region is a very safe environment to visit. The community is friendly and welcoming, there are walks to suit everybody, and most of the beaches are safe swimming for all ages. There is still an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity on Flinders.
Native wildlife abounds, up close too!…
Flinders Island literally abounds with native animals – Bennetts, Pademelon and Potoroo wallabies, possums, wombats, echidnas. A careful evening drive will reveal many. The Patriarch Sanctuary offers close day time opportunities to see and photograph native animals. The native flora is a sheer delight.
