OVERVIEW

This is a destination where photos can never do it justice. Visualise the Bay of Fires on steroids; the Flinders Island walks are so impressive and so breathtakingly gorgeous it's a wonder that this place remains so unknown. The coastline is punctuated by the red lichen-covered boulders that have made the Bay of Fires famous – but on Flinders Island there are considerably more of them. The pristine sandy beaches are seemingly for your own private use. Climb the tallest peak on the island, Mt Strzelecki, as well as several smaller peaks. Wildlife abounds too; huge numbers of wallabies (far too many for the locals!), Cape Barren geese, wild peacocks, pheasants, birds of prey and large numbers of seabirds roam unfettered all over the island.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Hike to the top of the tallest peak on the island, Mt Strzelecki
  • Wybalena walk at Killiekrankie and Potboil walk, offering a taste of the other side of the island
  • Traverse the Darling Ranges including the option to ascend Mnt Pillinger
  • The diversity of landscape: forest, mountains and coast makes this one of the best walking destinations in Australia
  • Stay in comfort on Flinders Island farms and be treated with delicious local produce at both ends of the island

ACCOMMODATION & DINING DESKTOP

Settle in for four nights in a retreat or private house on acreage near Trousers Point Beach. Immerse yourself in the true Flinders Island experience with the knowledge that you have the use of the farm/ land adjacent to Trousers Point Beach.  On the last 2 days, we make out way to the north end of the island and stay in a beautiful cabin or cabins on a farm adjacent to the ocean. This property is very special and you are free to roam at will. There are some magnificent walks on the property, gorgeous places to enjoy the sunset with a wine or a beer. The beach is also at your doorstep and you will most likely have it all to yourself.

The two-course dinners are prepared by your hosts with a focus on local fresh organic produce. Every day you will wake to a cooked breakfast to ready yourself for the upcoming day’s walk. You’ll lunch at incredible locations. Indeed, the walkers lunches complete the circle ensuring that your appetite is always kept satisfied. Our walker’s lunches are substantial and will provide variety. Lunch is always augmented by Auswalk’s famous trail mix. We provide you with your own insulated lunch bag and a silicon collapsible tub for your convenience. The meals at the other end of the islands are prepared by the same chefs that work at The Wharf.

Alcohol and drinks with meals are not included with meals (except tea/coffee and juice with breakfast).

GENERAL INFO

The island is 75km long and 40km wide. It sits in the middle of Bass Strait and is accessible by plane from either Melbourne or Launceston in Tasmania. We will meet you at the airport on the island on the first day and return you on the last day in plenty of time to catch your flight.

The tracks on the Flinders Island walks vary in quality but all are easily navigable. There are well-formed tracks and sections. Hike your way along rocky shorelines and sandy beaches. There are some opportunities for fit walkers to challenge themselves but the main walks are all easy to moderate, with the only exception being Mt Strzelecki. This trip operates with the support of our on-island guides and transport company who work for Auswalk. They can add to your experience by offering more walking options if you need them or by varying walks in order to shorten walks or even swap them around to cater for the weather.

For what to bring please refer to Gear Advice on our FAQ section.

HOW TO GET THERE

The trip starts and ends at Flinders Island airport near Whitemark where you’ll be met. Flights to the island leave from Essendon (near Melbourne airport) or Launceston (in Tasmania) via Sharp Airlines. For flight information visit sharpairlines.com or phone 1300 55 66 94.

WEATHER

Flinders Island has a temperate coastal climate that is suitable for walking at every time of the year except the winter months. Summer weather is mild compared with most of Australia, and winters never have frost. No wonder locals wouldn’t live anywhere else.

See the Bureau of Meteorology for information about temperatures and rainfall ahead of time to ensure proper clothing.

INSURANCE

We require that you have adequate travel insurance against potential losses, damage or injury, including cancellation costs and loss of luggage.

For all trips that require international travel, you must have purchased travel insurance that also includes medical evacuation coverage.

We also charge a cancellation fee if you cancel your walking holiday after we have confirmed it to cover costs incurred from our suppliers and in the office.  See the FAQ section for more information.

INFORMATION PACK

For nearly 30 years we have taken pride in providing seamlessly organised walking holidays, but we know, even with that in mind, that you’ll have many more questions. You will receive a very detailed information pack and itinerary approximately 6 weeks out from departure outlining all the fine detail and much more.

    Another excellent Stroll hike. Nothing was too much trouble for local guides David and Kathleen. From the early morning airport pickup until the late afternoon drop off, they were always available, warm and welcoming. They both clearly love the island and made sure we left with a genuine understanding of the history of the area. Tassie weather was kind us, warm, no rain and not much wind. The seven day itinerary meant hiking days could be swapped around depending on the weather. Two highlights were the Mount Strzelecki hike, hard going up, harder coming down and an afternoon swim at Allports Beach.
    A quiet unspoilt Island well worth visiting.
