Beautiful Flinders Island Accommodation For Your Next Beach Escape

If you want to swim and explore all day, choose from this list of stunning Flinders Island accommodation for your next getaway.

Killiecrankie Beach House
Killiecrankie Beach House

Flinders Island, located off the north-east coast of Tasmania, is a beach lover’s haven and a must-visit if you want to spend your days swimming and exploring. Surrounded by azure waters and edged with white sand beaches, this pristine paradise provides the perfect way to spend a few days (or more, if you can manage it).

Sharp Airlines operates services to the Flinders Island Airport, just outside of the town of Whitemark, from Launceston and Melbourne (Essendon) Airports. You can also accompany your car across with Bass Strait Freight’s ferry service, but this takes about seven hours.

The accommodation options on the island are varied and beautiful, from three luxe stays all based on a lush family farm, to eco-friendly and cosy nooks that are perfect for bunkering down and escaping the everyday stress of life in. Once you’re there, you’ll also be treated to some of the most beautiful and untouched coastline just waiting for you to swim, snorkel, beachcomb and explore.

If you’re planning your next beach getaway, here’s the best Flinders Island accommodation to kick back and relax in.

The Crayshack

In a dream spot right on the famous Killiecrankie Beach, this classic three-bedroom Tasmanian shack is decked out in perfectly vintage coastal style. If you can tear your eyes away from The Crayshack’s decor, this Flinders Island accommodation boasts expansive views across the bay which you can enjoy from the outdoor bath on the huge deck – perfect for washing off the saltwater after swimming all day.

Sawyers Bay Shacks

Sawyers Bay Shacks

Located on the west coast of Flinders Island, the Sawyers Bay Shacks are less than 10 minutes from the main township of Whitemark and in the perfect central spot for exploring all of the island. 

This Flinders Island accommodation consists of two “shacks” – a two-bedroom that sleeps up to five people and a three-bedroom accommodating up to eight – and is just 100 metres walk to a gorgeous secluded bay. Huge windows and decks offer up stunning views of the ocean and Mount Strzelecki in the distance.

Palana Beach House

Decked out in warm country-chic style with its pine-panelled walls and stone fireplace, Palana Beach House immediately feels like home – and it’s hard to leave once your stay is up. 

Situated on the tranquil northern end of Flinders Island, the two-bedroom property is right on a wide, sweeping beach with turquoise waters and sand dunes. It’s also handily located right near some of the island’s best walks if you feel like swapping the barefeet for some hiking boots.

Black Shack

Black Shack

Black Shack is a beautifully renovated two-bedroom cottage located on the north-west side of Flinders Island. Set in bushland but close to the local beaches, the wraparound verandah boasts not only sweeping views of the bay, but an outdoor clawfoot tub to soak in after a long day of doing, well, not much at all. 

You’ll love the neighbours – a group of practically tame wallabies who come to say hi every morning in return for oats or carrots. They’re so cute you’ll wish you could take one home.

West End Road, Leeka

Wombat Lodge
Wombat Lodge

Wombat Lodge

This rustic-yet-luxe three-bedroom farm stay is the ultimate in chic cosiness. Kitted out with incredible artisan touches, you’ll love Wombat Lodge’s deep-set bath with its views of Mount Killiecrankie as well as the home’s custom-designed day beds just begging for you to curl up on with a good book and a glass of pinot noir. 

While its cattle farm location feels remote, this Flinders Island accommodation is close to some of the island’s best beaches and walking trails, like the world-famous Killiecrankie Beach.

3951 Palana Road, Killiecrankie

Dwarf Cottage

On the same property as Wombat Lodge is Dwarf Cottage, a smaller space ideal for couples. This gorgeous studio offers the same stunning farmland and mountain views, as well as luxe furnishings inside the space itself. The cottage is located right near Mount Killiecrankie, Diamond Gully and Stacky’s Bight Beach – the perfect base for keen explorers.

Killiecrankie Beach House

Located right on the Killiecrankie Beach waterfront, the chic three-bedroom Killiecrankie Beach House is in prime position for enjoying stunning bay views and hanging out in the water all day.

Echo Hills Cottage

Echo Hills Cottage

For a super remote and peaceful getaway despite only being 20 minutes from Whitemark, Echo Hills Cottage is the perfect Flinders Island accommodation for those looking to totally unwind. 

The ultimate in privacy, the two-bedroom home is built on thousands of acres of cattle farm so you won’t have to look at any neighbours during your stay, just the glorious views of farmland with Babel Island in the distance. 

You’ll be welcomed with fresh flowers in every room and free-range eggs in the fridge, and can pop out to say hello to the cows just to really drive home the rural experience.

Lackrana, Flinders Island

The Nest 

Another Palana gem, two-bedroom house The Nest is as bright and nautical as you’d expect from a coastal retreat. This Flinders Island accommodation is located conveniently close to Palana Beach, a perfect 2km stretch of white sand to take a relaxing walk and enjoy the glorious sunset, or you can explore one of the surrounding rockpools instead.

4747 Palana Road, Palana 

Green Valley Homestead
Green Valley Homestead

Green Valley Homestead

Green Valley Homestead is a three-bedroom rural farmstay located just five minutes out of Whitemark, one of Flinders Island’s main townships. Though the cottage is chill and relaxing, it’s also close to several of the island’s best walks, including the gruelling Mount Strezelecki summit hike and easier walks to Trousers Point and Fotheringate Bay.

Butter Factory Road, Whitemark
