Journey Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Flinders Island, Tasmania

Arrive on Flinders Island to a warm A&K welcome and a private transfer to Walkers lookout, starting your journey with a magnificent 360° panoramic view of the Island. Drive back into Whitemark township, explore some local shops and be enchanted by the opportunity to cuddle a baby wombat. After your encounter, continue to your accommodation at Flinders Island Gourmet Retreat at Cooma House.

Nestled in beautiful bushland and built in homage to its remote location and natural environment, Flinders Island Gourmet Retreat at Cooma House is a country-style farmhouse offering an intimate and fully immersive experience in Flinders Island life. The five comfortable en-suite rooms have each been created with warmth and care, with bespoke furniture and Tasmanian artworks, befitting the surrounding environment. With access to the whole house and grounds as part of your experience, enjoy the reading room, the Parish Sitting Room and all the outdoor spaces - where you can have good coffee, cakes or biscuits or other snacks each day. From the house you can see the sea and it’s just a short walk to the beach. Gourmet dining is also available using fresh and seasonal produce (most from the garden, paddock or ocean to the plate), and a cooking demonstration is held every evening at 5.30pm, using fresh produce from the garden.

This evening enjoy a three-course dinner at your retreat with local and regional wines.  

Please note: Cuddling a baby wombat is possible only on Wednesday, Friday & Saturday only (subject to change).
