We have spent many weeks over the past five years exploring Flinders Island, meeting the local folk and making some great friendships. We love how laidback island life is and you’ll have the chance to meet some of the interesting characters that make up the wonderful community on Flinders Island.

It’s a relaxed lifestyle where the locals live on “island time”, which simply means they take their time to walk on the beach, have a massage, do an art class, or just enjoy a yoga class at the foothill of Mount Strzelecki.

The number of people calling Flinders Island home has increased about 16 per cent in the past five years, with 833 residents recorded in the 2016 census, up from 707 in 2011.
