Of all the beauty spots on Flinders Island, the views of and from Trousers Point must be the most photographed. Here there is a tiny cove sheltered between headlands of apricot-coloured granite. The crescent of beach is of finest white sand where clear waters of aquamarine, intensifying to sapphire, surge onto an often un-trodden shore.
Behind the wooded sand dunes rise the granite faces interspersed with shrubbery of the Strzelecki massif. Across the waters of Franklin Sound are the pale blue mountains of Cape Barren Island. On the north-western side of the point, on Fotheringate Bay, limestones overlying the granite have been water-sculptured into fantastic shapes ��� a Melbourne Cup, a Hippopotamus Rock.
