Strzelecki National Park

National Parks and Reserves

Strzelecki National Park in the south-west corner of Flinders Island is a wild and remote sanctuary for many plants and animal species. Wildlife found in the park includes wombats, Bennetts wallabies, Tasmanian pademelons and potoroos. There are also more than 100 species of birds, including the rare swift parrot, forty-spotted pardalote, Grey-tailed tattler and hooded plover.
Plant lovers will enjoy the park’s open forests of Tasmanian blue gum and dense coastal fringe of Teatree, as well as Sassafras-musk rainforest and many rare orchids.
Short walks from Trousers Point and Fotheringate Bay pass through casuarina woodland and coastal heath before exiting on the coast, while the Strzelecki Peaks walking track is a challenging day walk rising from sea level to the 756-metre granite massifs of the Peaks. This is the highest point on Flinders Island and an excellent vantage point over the southern end of the island and beyond.
Fotheringate Bay has some unusual rock formations and is a favourite with the locals. These family-friendly areas have campsites, picnic spots, plus plenty of opportunities to swim, fish, snorkel and dive, or simply take a long and lazy beach walk.
