Great Tasmanian Walks – Flinders Island Trail


Flinders Island, Tasmania is a forgotten paradise that has attracted those in the know who enjoy great walks with few people. Flinders Island offers a variety of walks that can take half a day or a whole week.

Back in the early seventies an ambitious project created the Flinders Trail running south to north of the island. The Trail included opportunities for horse riding,walking and four wheel driving.

While the trail still exists some part are a challenge and need upgrading. Efforts are underway to bring the Trail back as a great outdoor experience and create another unique Flinders Island walk.

The Trail 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.

When the Trail is fully developed it will be supported by upgraded signage, maps as well opportunities for other activities. Watch this space for further developments or better still come and enjoy the Flinders Trail. Have look at our Self Guided Walk Package.
