Overview

Highlights

Flinders Island is one of 52 islands in the Furneaux Group dotted across Bass Strait, north-east of Tasmania. The island is as spectacularly wild and rugged as the people are warm and welcoming, and like the island's location, the experience is truly unique.

Discover the stories written in the landscape across Flinders Island and its surrounding Bass Strait archipelago along the Furneaux Geotrail. Use the Geotrail as a companion guide to learn more about the places around you as you visit the island's most popular visitor attractions.

Look out for the Geotrail signage on your travels to help you explore the local geological heritage of Flinders Island. There are ten geosites located across Flinders Island where you can explore and learn about the stories that define the landscape.
