As you approach the rugged Furneaux Group of islands, Flinders Island looks like a motley collection of jumbled mountains jutting out of the sea. It’s 75 km long and 40 km wide with a population of only 900 people. As well as tall peaks, sea cliffs and idyllic coves, much of the central part of the island is covered in lush green farmland and glorious national parks.
This afternoon, we will endeavour to do a short walk at Trousers Point to get acquainted with the island. This is a spectacular headland walk with outstanding views of the mountains.
