Drive Discovery Central Flinders Island

Drive to Walkers Lookout for sunrise over the Darling Range or take an early morning beach walk near Whitemark. In Whitemark take a stroll along the Bluff Fitness Track to allow an hour for the easy coastal walk. Or drive just north of the town and take Bluff Road to view the birdlife in this tidal salt marsh.

Continue north stop in at Long Point or Sawyers Bay beaches before making your way to Emita, Settlement Point. Spend time at the historic site of Wybalenna. Picnic and discover the secluded coves and sandy beaches at Allports, Emita and Lillies. With safe swimming and crystal clear waters they are all ideal for snorkelling. Call into the Furneaux Museum in the afternoon (check opening days).

Do the coastal walk to Castle Rock from Allports Beach to Marshall Bay. On dusk head to the Shearwater viewing Platform near Port Davies and watch mutton birds return to their burrows to feed their young chicks. Return to Whitemark via Walkers Lookout – magnificent sunset colours along the face of the Darling Range and looking back towards Mt Strzelecki.

Remember to wave at passing motorists.
