About

​Mount Strzelecki is the highest point on Flinders Island and the namesake of this national park. The mountain’s distinctive peaks are even visible from mainland Tasmania.

Visitors are spoilt for choice at Strzelecki National Park, with endless stunning beaches, turquoise waters and crisp white sand. It’s the kind of place where if someone is already on the beach, it is far too crowded! Not to worry though, you can always find another emptier one!

Swimming, snorkelling, fishing and kayaking are great ways to experience the coastal highlights of this striking national park on Flinders Island. There are also several walks that take you across the landscape, including an ascent across the majestic granite rocks to the summit of Mount Strzelecki. This climb will reward you with 360 degree views of this remote archipelago in Bass Strait.

Flinders Island is the largest island in the Furneaux Group, which lies anchored in Bass Strait to the north-east of mainland Tasmania. Strzelecki National Park lies in the south-west corner of Flinders Island. With distinctive granite peaks that offer spectacular views, a rich variety of flora and fauna, and beautiful coastal waters, Strzelecki National Park is an ideal spot for keen walkers, birdwatchers and kayakers.

Choose a walk within the park which allow you to appreciate the stunning variety of landscapes: from Tasmanian blue gum forests and sparkling sands, to mountainous peaks and coastal heathland. 

Strzelecki Peaks, one of the 60 Great Short Walks, takes you to the summit of Mount Strzelecki and provides 360 degree views of the island and surrounding waters.

If gentle coastal walks are more to your taste, head for Trousers Point​ Beach. There's a 2km walk with beautiful views that you can follow around the rocky headland to Trousers Point.

Boating and fishing are popular activities on Flinders Island. There are boat ramps near the park at Whitemark, Lady Barron, and Badger Corner. Experienced kayakers will enjoy the opportunity to discover pristine beaches, isolated inlets and quiet offshore islands. While the Trousers Point headland and Fotheringate Bay are ​well protected and ideal for families with young children, be aware that beaches are unpatrolled, and conditions on the water can change quickly.

Basic camping facilities are available within the park at the southern end of Trousers Point.​
