Flying into Flinders Island is an experience in itself.
Leave from the private terminal at Launceston Airport (no queues, no security, no hassle). Within seconds of take-off, you will have a magical birds’ eye view over the coastline, mountains and forests of Tasmania, looking far ahead across the Bass Strait before you catch sight of the Furneaux Group of Islands – mountains rising out of the sea.
Land at Flinders Island, the second largest of these mysterious islands, some 25 minutes after takeoff, and prepare to leave the rest of the world behind as you disembark. With over 80 white sand beaches, wombats and wallabies and birds galore, this is as close to paradise as it gets.
