FLINDERS ISLAND

SMALL PHOTO & INFORMATION PAGE

FLINDERS ISLAND is a picturesque island off the NORTH EAST coast of Tasmania. Critically you have to fly into Flinders Island, as it is isolated from the rest of Tasmania. However, it has abundant natural attractions and wildlife, plus the Strzelecki National Park. Best of all it has a very relaxed lifestyle, where people don't even bother to lock their cars. The facilities are located in the towns of Whitemark and Lady Barron. There is lots of accommodation on Flinders Island.

You can fly into Flinders Island from regional airports in Melbourne, Victoria, from Adelaide in South Australia and from LAUNCESTON in Tasmania. There is also a ferry service from BRIDPORT, although in 2011 the future of this service was in doubt. There are airports on Flinders Island at both WHITEMARK and LADY BARRON. Most flights land at Whitemark.

FACILITIES: There are shops, cafes, hotels and a petrol pump at both Whitemark and at Lady Barron. There are many accommodation places on FLINDERS ISLAND.
