As you approach the rugged Furneaux Group of islands, Flinders looks like a motley collection of jumbled mountains jutting out of the sea. As well as tall peaks, sea cliffs, large rivers and idyllic coves, much of the central part of the island is covered in lush green farmland and dotted with tiny settlements. The walking offers tremendous variety. There are rocky coastlines to explore, interspersed with beautiful sandy beaches. There are serene river estuaries and picturesque inlets. There's an opportunity to climb the highest peak on the island as well as several smaller peaks. If you have a good head for heights, there's a chance to ascend Mt Pillinger. Wildlife abounds too. There are numerous wallabies, huge Cape Barren geese, wild peacocks, pheasants, birds of prey and large numbers of seabirds. Summer weather is mild compared with most of Australia, and winters never have frost. During this seven-day group guided walking holiday, their small groups are accommodated at a four and a half star retreat at the foot of Mt Strzelecki, overlooking Trousers Point Beach. You will be accompanied by two guides so there will be a choice of easier and harder walk options along the way.
