Great Southern Islands (7 days)
Carved by the treacherous waters of Bass Strait and the Great Southern Ocean, Flinders, King and Kangaroo Islands are three unique destinations.
Flinders and King Islands hold great natural beauty with sandy beaches, lichen-covered boulders and rugged mountain ranges.
Kangaroo Island features incredible wildlife, gourmet food and imposing natural features and is quite spectacular.
Discover the prolific wildlife, mouth-watering food and wine and breathtaking scenery that make these three must-see destinations so special.
Just a short hop from Melbourne, Tasmania and the islands of Bass Strait beckon visitors with the promise of rugged beauty, wilderness, adventure, history, stunning views, and fresh produce.

Itinerary: Great Southern Islands (7 days)
Day 1: Melbourne to Flinders Island (L,D)
Depart Moorabbin Airport at 8.00am with a flight over Wilson’s Promontory and Bass Strait to Flinders Island.
A local guide will take you on two days’ exploration of the Island. Starting at the stunning beach at Trousers Point, tour Whitemark, Walker’s Lookout, Mt Strzelecki and Lady Baron before arriving at the Furneaux Tavern for two nights. Welcome drinks and dinner round out the day.
Travelling with a small group to Tasmanian locations with Kirkhope Aviation was a very enjoyable 4-day getaway. This tour had the lot - great food, excellent local tour guides, stunning scenery, smooth plane ride, and a picture perfect view of the Twelve Apostles.
