Itinerary

WHITEMARK - VINEGAR HILL LOOKOUT - LADY BARRON

 

Welcome to our 5 day tour to Flinders Island. With pickup from our homes we transfer to Essendon Airport to depart for our scenic flight to Flinders Island. On our arrival to Whitemark Airport, we will be welcomed aboard the coach and transferred to our accommodation for the next four nights at the Furneaux Tavern in Lady Barron. Along the way keep an eye out for Cape Barren Geese at home in their natural habitat of hillside and heath land as we travel to Vinegar Hill Lookout for spectacular views out across Franklin Sound and its islands set against the backdrop of the hills of Cape Barren Island.

 

OVERNIGHT: Furneaux Tavern, LADY BARRON

CASTLE ROCK - KILLECRANKIE BAY - WYBALENNA

 

Today we explore the north western corner of the island, pausing at the photogenic Castle Rock. We enjoy morning tea at the far northern area of Palana, a site of coastal surveillance at the start of World War II before touring to nearby North East River which is a favourite spot for local fishermen. We have time to stroll along beautiful Killiecrankie Bay keeping an eye out for the famous Killiecrankie diamonds. Our lunch stop is at Deep Bite Café which has magnificent views of Mt Killiecrankie. This afternoon we explore the history of Wybalenna, a small settlement established in 1833 – 1847 to house Tasmanian Aboriginal people brought to Flinders Island by George Robinson. Today, the only remaining building is the red brick chapel which has been restored by the National Trust and is of national heritage significance. Near Emita, we visit the small but interesting Furneaux Museum which contains a wonderful collection of records and exhibits of the island’s natural history, maritime heritage and island lifestyle, including mementos of stirring days and enterprises. We stroll along Allports Beach and enjoy afternoon tea before returning to our accommodation.

BOAT CRUISE - PATRIARCHS WILDLIFE SANCTUARY

 

After breakfast we board our cruise vessel departing from the wharf at Lady Barron for a morning cruise of picturesque Franklin Sound with its various islands including Little Dog, Great Dog and Vansittart. We explore remote beaches; observe the wildlife and the wonderful sight of soaring sea birds, Albatross, Pacific Gulls, Shearwaters and Sea Eagles. We return for a late lunch at the Tavern and some free time before either going out on an evening Sunset Mutton Bird Cruise, or meeting the Parks & Wildlife officer at Patriarch Sanctuary, a wildlife haven where we will encounter some of the native animals.

Strzelecki’s towering granite crags forming a backdrop to the pristine half-moon beach. Have your cameras ready for this famous, photogenic area. We travel to the main town of Whitemark to have a look around the town, with time to visit the galleries and gem shop before having lunch at The Interstate Hotel. This afternoon, we take in the 360 degree view of Flinders and the surrounding islands from Walkers Hill Lookout. We pause at Tobias Furneaux Lookout for wonderful views across the farmlands then continue to the wetland breeding area of Cameron Inlet before returning to our accommodation.
