Make Yourself at Home on Flinders or King Island

Tasmania's Bass Strait Islands

If you live in Hobart and southern Tasmania, travelling to either Bass Strait island has until now meant driving to Launceston or Burnie or perhaps an expensive charter flight from Hobart.

Sharp Airlines are commencing DIRECT services to these amazing islands from Hobart with the introduction of direct flights using their popular 19 seat Metroliner aircraft. Services are scheduled to commence 30 September 2020.

TasVacations is delighted to be partnering with Sharp Airlines to deliver a great range of holiday packages to each destination. Check out some of the options shown below and contact us to make it all happen. We can book flights, car rental, accommodation, and golf!

Golfers - pack your clubs (and plenty of spare balls) and “tee off” to King Island whilst foodies, nature lovers and active walkers seeking the great outdoors will just love Flinders!


Flinders Island

Flinders covers four groups of Bass Strait islands off the north-eastern tip of Tasmania: the Furneaux, Kent, Hogan and Curtis groups. Of the more than 60 islands only three have permanent residents: Flinders Island, Cape Barren Island and Clarke Island. Flinders Island has the largest population.

The three main population centres on Flinders Island are Whitemark, Lady Barron and Killiecrankie. Whitemark is the main residential and business centre.

Flinders Island has a thriving rural community that produces sheep and wool, cattle, milk-fed lambs, crayfish, abalone, poppies, cauliflower seed and Cape Barren geese.

Flinders Island is a narrow island, 75 kilometres long and 40 kilometres wide. The Darling Ranges run down the centre. The total land area of Flinders Island is 1,333 square kilometres. It has 73 kilometres of sealed roads and 309 kilometres of gravel roads.


King Island

King Island guards the western entrance to Bass Strait and is the largest island in the Hunter Group. Only 64 kilometres long and 27 kilometres across at its widest point, King Island’s beautiful beaches, rocky coastline and excellent produce more than compensate for its small size.

King Island is perhaps best known for its amazing dairy – cheese in particular! Oh the cheese….and of course King Island beef! Kelp and crayfish are also valuable exports. More recently with the opening of Cape Wickham and Ocean Dunes Golf Courses the island is a mecca for golfers wanting to play on some of the most scenic and challenging courses in the world!
