Trousers Point is popular for two stunning beaches, unique rock features and beautiful panoramas to Mount Strzelecki and off-shore islands. Trousers Point Beach, with sparkling waters, large stretches of white sand and a mountain climbing from the ocean, is the most praised beach on Flinders Island. On the opposite side of Trousers Point Beach lies Fotheringate Bay. Fotheringate Bay has beautiful granite caves shaped by emerging groundwater, marine erosion and alveolar weathering of cliffs.

WALK ITINERARY: This morning enjoy a superb breakfast before heading to the trail. Today you will feel a real sense of achievement by walking up to beautiful Mount Strzelecki, unquestionably the highlight of walking in the Furneaux group. The view from the summit is exceptional with many good viewpoints along the way. Strzelecki National Park is small in area but has some great ridges and impressive rock peaks and we climb the highest of these at 753 metres.

FLEXIBLE WALKING OPTION: For those not up to the challenge of Mt Strzelecki, we have a shorter walking option today from Paland to Holloway Point on the Northern Shores of the Island.  We start at the lovely Palana Beach. Palana Beach is a much-loved meeting place for locals and regular visitors to Flinders Island. You may find the ‘Chinese fingernails’ along this section of the coast. The spectacular views of the Sister Islands enrich the experience. During today’s walk, there is no track. So, we meander through rocky headlands covered in bright orange lichen and small areas of unspoiled sandy beaches. A highlight of the walk is watching the speed at which the water flows into the river mouth of North East River.

Afterwards, we return to our accommodation before for a superb dinner at the local Furneaux Tavern served with Tasmania wine.
