5 Reasons To Visit Flinders Island, Tasmania

Some people say Sundays should be saved for snoozing. Tink the wombat certainly thinks so! @wanderlust_union recently visited Tink’s island home, Flinders Island, and discovered all manner of friendly locals – some sleepy, some not so much! Flinders is part of the Furneaux Group of 52 islands and is located off mainland Tasmania’s north-east corner. It’s an island of incredible beauty: pristine coastline, granite-capped mountains, and proud locals. In fact, there’s so much to do – including relaxing – it should come as no surprise that one can get rather sleepy. Isn’t that right, Tink? Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, guys.

Its all paper daisies and azure water from the top of Mt Strzelecki! #discovertasmania #seeaustralia #northerntasmania . #regram 📷: @maddkvnt #flindersisland #flinders #mtstrezleki #flowers #paperdaisy

What #TassieStyle adventures are your horizon this weekend? Are you looking to pull on the hiking boots, backpack and gaiters and take to the hills like @bainonbike did recently on Flinders Island? This magnificent coastal vista is from the top of Mount Strzelecki, part of the Strzelecki National Park in the south-western corner of Flinders. Strzelecki is unique in that lies in an area where plant and animal species found on mainland @Australia and Tasmania overlap, making the park of important biogeographic significance. The park was proclaimed in 1967 and given the official name of Strzelecki National Park in 1972, in honour of the Polish scientist and explorer Count Paul Edmund Strzelecki, who climbed a number of the mountain peaks on Flinders Island in 1842. Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Andrew.

Sunday serenity, we couldn’t think of anywhere better to be.

Picture yourself here? This gorgeous spot located in the North East corner of #flindersisland is Stackys Bite - accessible by foot and a stunning walk around Killiecrankie Bay or by boat. Picture perfect!

It's a good day for wombat snuggles with Bruce 😻

Each morning I drive into town I am greeted by a herd of black swans feeding in the wetlands. #flindersisland is a bird watchers paradise with over 200 species enjoying the islands environment and wetlands.

Mt Strzelecki - One of ‘Tasmania's 60 Great Short Walks' is a 4-5 hour journey (or 5.6km return trip - straight up the mountain!) At 756m it's the highest point on Flinders Island. Climb to the summit and be rewarded by superb vistas of the outer Furneaux and Cape Barren Islands. It's a challenging walk that involves a steep climb through wooded slopes and gullies.... But wow! What a view when you reach the top! .

An interesting fact about our unique island home... #Repost @tasteofflinders ・・・ Would you believe Flinders Island is the 7th largest island in Australia with a land mass of 1,359 square kilometers. Flinders Islands terrain is diverse yet stunningly beautiful with rugged mountains, farmland and scenic coastlines. The views are constantly changing and it always amazes me how beautiful this place can be. #australiagram #exploreaustralia #discoveraustralia #wanderaustralia #seeaustralia #discovertasmania #instatassie #instatasmania tasmaniagram #tassiepics #northerntasmania #exploretasmania #australia #flindersisland #bassstrait #untouched #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #loveflindersisland #mothernature #naturegeography #nofilter

Soaking up a Flinders Island sunset in silence from atop a granite boulder near the township of Killiecrankie with @video_compass. Aside from its tranquil location on the island's north-west coast, Killiecrankie is famous for the abundance of topaz – known colloquially as `Killiecrankie Diamonds' – found in nearby Killiecrankie Bay. In fact, it's almost customary for visitors to try their hand at fossicking for that special gem. Flinders Island is located north of the Tasmanian mainland - in Bass Strait - and is part of the Furneaux Group of islands. It's renown for its laid-back lifestyle, delicious island produce and super-friendly locals - including the furry ones! Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Simon.
