    Flinders Island was named in 1799, after Bass and Flinders circumnavigated Tasmania. The strait separating Tasmania from the mainland was named Bass Strait, while the major island in the Furneaux Group of 52 islands was named after Flinders. The history of these islands is closely tied to the tragic story of the Tasmanian Aboriginals, and the original settlement scheme that drew settlers from Tasmania and central NSW to the island's eastern shore. Then there’s the Wybalenna Historic Site that is regarded by the National Trust as one of the most important historic sites in Australia, and is truly well worth visiting.

    11 Thursday, November 25, 2021 Wineglass Bay, Australia
    View of Wineglass Bay, Australia

    Set on Tasmania's eastern coast, deep amongst the stunning beauty of Freycinet National Park, Wineglass Bay enjoys some of the world's best climate conditions, with over 300 days of sunshine a year. The bay with its 1.8km white sand beach is one of three bays defining the narrow Freycinet Peninsula. In the 1820s whalers came to Wineglass Bay and set up shore bases. Whenever the whalers went about their grisly business, the bay was dyed red with blood - like rich red wine in a glass - hence its name. Read more about Wineglass Bay, Australia
