Cruises from Flinders Island
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. Read more
