Welcome to Flinders Island
Located off the north-east coast of Tasmania, Flinders Island is the largest of the Furneaux Group of 52 islands, and offers a great variety of breathtaking experiences. From pristine coastlines with beautiful beaches, to the rugged pink and grey granite mountain ranges, Flinders is a popular destination for GP locum doctors.
Locals on the island enjoy the area's tranquillity and mild climate, as well as extensive opportunities for bushwalking, bird watching, boating, diving, rock and mountain climbing, fishing, camping, and even fossicking for gems. Flinders Island is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, as it is home to many of Australia’s most treasured native species, including the mutton-bird, and several species of honeyeaters, wallabies, possums, and wombats. There are also many fascinating historic sights, where visitors can learn about the rich history of the area.
Flinders is as spectacularly wild and rugged as the people are warm and welcoming, and like her location, the experience is truly unique.
