Although a small island of only 1,333 sq km, Flinders Island, off tghe north-east coast of Tasmania, hosts an amazing array of ecosystems that make for wonderful hiking - from dunes and lagoons, to woodland and mountainous granite ridges which produce spectacular and unique species of flora and fauna which freely roams the island.

With its red lichen covered boulders, vast white sand beaches and dramatic granite peaks including Mt Strzelecki, the landscape is at once familiar and Tasmanian, but also unique and seemingly untouched.
