Flinders Island is the largest of the Bass Strait islands - approx 80k long and 40k wide. With a population of about 800 people it is a paradise of rugged granite coast and mountains and immaculate sandy beaches. I have walked some sections of the coastline and intend eventually to walk it all, some 200+ kilometres. With an excellent air services from Tasmania and Victoria a trip to the island is the cheapest and most efficient form of time travel invented. In one short 30 minute flight from Tassie the clock is turned back half a century. 


  1. I love the minimal less-is-more quality that lots of your photographs have. You rock.....and I'm not biased in any way!

  2. Fabulous photos, Suzie's right you should post more often. My hubby and i would love to visit Flinders Is and fossick for Kilacrankie day!
