Travel to Flinders Island

Our bikes had already gone to Flinders Is. on the ferry from Bridport so we drove to Launcestn Airport to fly over in a small plane with Sharp Airlines. It was a 30 min comfortable flight. We flew into Whitemark & the weather was spectacular.  We bought a couple of nice salad rolls & drinks to have later & got a lift down to Lady Barron to collect our bikes.

We were relieved that the bikes & gear were all undamaged. We set up our tents at Yellow Bch 2km east of Lady Barron at a great picnic/camp area.

To blow out the cobwebs, we rode up Vinegar Hill for great views all around. There is a lookout off a big granite slab for good viewing.

Back to camp for our salad roll, cup of tea (using my new wood burner stove which just uses little twigs).

Later we had a quick beer at the Lady Barron pub & headed back to see the beautiful sunset up Franklin Sound.

As I lie in my tent typing this with my phone, there are the sounds of wallabies, crickets and Cape Barren Geese honking.

It is a lovely, peaceful place.
