Sixty kilometres off north-eastern Tasmania is a world of craggy mountains, quiet inlets, lagoons and white sandy beaches. Spend a week with local people as we explore the bays, headlands and high points of Flinders, the largest island in the Furneaux group. On half day walks, we enjoy the peace of quiet bays, the orange hue of lichen-covered rocks or the intricate patterns of tidal pools. For a bigger picture, there is the option to hike to the summit of Mt Strzelecki, the highest point on the island. On a clear day, the views are spectacular to the far north east coast of Tasmania. A half-day coastal walk leads to the limestone formations and caves of Settlement Point plus Wybalenna, the last settlement of Tasmanian Aborigines. The nearby Furneaux museum documents the island’s history. There are also chances to see Cape Barren Geese, the second rarest in the world. A day cruise in sheltered waters explores the outer islands, bustling with shearwater rookeries and other sea birds. On the last day, enjoy the views from the craggy granite formations of Darling Range.
