Trousers Point Picnic Area

National Parks and Reserves

Trousers Point stands out as one of Flinders Island’s most picturesque beaches. Known for its stunning beauty, Trousers Point often leaves visitors awe-struck and emotional. The beach is a photographer’s paradise, boasting some of the island’s most captivating vistas. Its shallow entry and crystal-clear waters make it an ideal and safe spot for children.

As a component of the Strzelecki National Park, Trousers Point falls under the jurisdiction of the Parks and Wildlife Service. Before visiting, you’ll need to acquire a Parks Pass from Service Tasmania or any of the local car rental agencies.

The reserve features a range of amenities including public toilets, picnic tables, BBQ, and changing sheds. Tank water is available, and there’s also a sheltered area designated for camping.

As for the name “Trousers Point,” its origins are a subject of local lore. One story claims it commemorates Richard Burgess’s fortunate but trouser-less escape from a nearby shipwreck, the Sarah Ann Blanche. Another, less dramatic account suggests the name comes from a box of trousers discovered on the shore, washed up from the wreck of the Cambridgeshire in 1875.
