Flinders Island is the main island of the Furneaux group, a collection of 52 islands that stretch across Bass Strait between Tasmania and mainland Australia. These remarkable “mountains in the sea” offer you a wild, natural and friendly holiday experience.

With a pleasant climate throughout the year and activities from boating, climbing, fishing and golf, to exploring our history and culture, Flinders Island has a lot to offer.
