Tasmania East Coast - Strzelecki National Park

Strzelecki National Park covers 4216 hectares in the south-western corner of Flinders Island. Flinders is the main island in the Furneaux Group, a group of 54 islands in Bass Strait off the north-east coast of mainland Tasmania.

The national park protects rich and varied ecosystems as well as spectacular coastal and granite mountain landscapes. Strzelecki forms an area where plant and animal species found on mainland Australia and Tasmania overlap, making the park of important biogeographic significance. The park is also home to a high number of endemic species, rare flora and fauna and significant vegetation communities.


Flinders Island can be reached by either plane or by sea. Island Airlines Tasmania (ph. (03) 6359 2266 or 1800 645 875) offer flights to Whitemark (the island's main settlement) from Launceston, as well as services from Essendon and La Trobe Valley in Victoria. Schutt Air Services (ph. 1800 818 455) fly charter services most days of the week from Launceston and Moorabbin in Victoria.
