Just came back from two nights at Flinders Island, it was not enough, but we fitted as much as we could into our three days. It is predominantly coastal scenery but through the centre is a massive granite mountain range, and the coast is amazing. How many other places in the world can you visit dozens of beaches where the only footprints are yours! Everyone on the island (pop 800) is friendly, warm and welcoming. You can't pass a car without waving - it is the done thing. Being one of 200 in the Furneaux group of islands, the views across the water are spectacular and dotted with islands. The island has a large quantity of wallabies and wombats, we came across fields of cape barren geese, wild turkeys even and pheasants. Regret not going on a fishing trip, but we ran out of time. To visit Flinders Island is to experience the world the way we want it to be. Remote, friendly, scenic, safe, quiet, the perfect destination to strip yourself of life's stresses. Reading the menu at the tavern, they state "if you like your meal, we will buy a beer in the bar for the farmer that produced it", also "give us 24 hours notice for a lobster dinner, at the time you place your order, it will still be in the sea". That sums up Flinders Island, a quiet piece of paradise, that is as yet, undiscovered by the majority of tourists - so see it while it is still the treasured jewel of peace it is!
