Itinerary: Great Southern Islands (7 days)
Day 1: Melbourne to Flinders Island (L,D)
Depart Moorabbin Airport at 8.00am with a flight over Wilsons Promontory and Bass Strait to Flinders Island.
Flinders Island Adventures will meet you for two days’ exploration of the Island, starting with the remote north end.
The impressive Castle Rock is a photographer’s dream, with its striking colours and gorgeous backdrop. This massive granite boulder stands tall on the picturesque shoreline of Marshall Bay Conservation Area.
Stop at North East River on the northern tip of the island, the meeting point of the Tasman Sea and Bass Strait, then on to Palana where evidence of WWII surveillance is still visible.
A delicious picnic lunch will be served at Killiecrankie, famous for its white topaz known as Killiecrankie diamonds.
Reflect at Wybalenna, site of the Tasmanian Aboriginal settlement between 1833 and 1847, when all indigenous Tasmanians were moved to this location.
Visit the Furneaux Museum, which offers a fascinating insight into the history of the Furneaux Group of Islands, of which Flinders Island is just one of 52.
Arrive at your lovely home for the next two nights, the boutique Mountain Seas Lodge. A welcome drink with your fellow travellers before dinner rounds out a wonderful first day of your tour.
Overnight: Mountain Seas Lodge
We thoroughly enjoyed this experience - the amazing sights, the remote places, the resilient people and the wonderful pilot who guided us through it all.
