As you approach the rugged Furneaux group of islands, Flinders looks like a motley collection of jumbled mountains jutting out of the sea. It’s 75km long and 40km wide. As well as tall peaks, sea cliffs, large rivers and idyllic coves, much of the central part of the island is covered in lush green farmland and dotted with tiny settlements.

The walking offers tremendous variety. There are rocky coastlines to explore, interspersed with beautiful sandy beaches. There are serene river estuaries and picturesque inlets. There’s an opportunity to climb the highest peak on the island as well as several smaller peaks. If you have a good head for heights, there’s a chance to ascend Mt Pillinger, justifiably known to locals as the “Eiger of Flinders Island”.

Back in the early seventies an ambitious project created The Flinders Trail, designed to be the daddy of all Flinders Island walks, running south to north of the island. It is one of the best ways to get to know the forgotten paradise that is Flinders Island, even though sections have not been maintained as well as others.

The Trail includes opportunities for horse riding, walking and four wheel driving. It winds its way from the Strzelecki National Park to the North East River and provides the visitor with great walks across mountain ranges and along coastal beaches that include a variety of bird and animal life as well as different vegetation types. There are opportunities to stop off and study the history or find a Killiecrankie Diamond or do a spot of fishing. Flinders Trail can be divided into five sections linked to accommodation at Lady Barron, Whitemark Emita, Killiecrankie and Palana.

Place Categories: Areas, Cross Country, Flinders Island, Landscapes And Vistas, National Parks and Nature and Wildlife.
