Flinders Island is rich with breath-taking scenery. Take a weekend or, better still, a whole week to visit and enjoy the beaches, walks and wildlife. The Trousers Point walk, within the Strzelecki National Park includes unusual rock features, views to off-shore islands and two beautiful beaches.


The rocky granite headland of Trousers Point is overlaid with Quaternary sands forming coastal beaches, dunes, ridges and flats. Granite boulders protrude through the shallow sandy soil and along the coastline.

There are also other areas with significant geoheritage values within the park, including coastal karst landforms at Fotheringate Bay and broad shore platforms (up to fifty metres) with solution pans, sea stacks, caves formed by emerging groundwater, marine erosion and alveolar weathering of cliffs.

After a mornings walk why not call in to Visitas on Trousers Point for lunch
