The Trousers Point Walk is a 3 mi out-and-back coastal track that starts and ends at Trouser Point car park in the Strzelecki National Park, Flinders Island, north-east of Tasmania.
This short Great Walk is graded as Easy and is usually completed in 1 hour, as this short but beautiful family friendly walking trail leads you along the pristine white sand and crystal clear coastline, passing caves and unique rock formations with Mount Strzeleck ((756m), the highest point on Flinders Island, as your backdrop.
Terrain is a mixture of bush track, rocky sections (slippery when wet), beach/coastal path with the option of a gravel road for a quicker more direct return to Trousers Point if required. There are some sections that run parallel with steep cliffs so children should be supervised at all times, whilst walkers are advised to stick to the track at all times.
At Trousers Point you will find toilets, gas barbeques, campsites and drinking water, and picnic tables at Fotheringate Beach – making this stop and stunning trail ideal for family’s looking for an adventure without straying too far from amenities.
Fees apply to enter the national park which can be paid Service Tasmania in Whitemark, and dogs are not permitted in the park.
You’ll need to get to Flinders Island, and this usually means a scenic flight across the Bass Strait from Launceston, Tasmania, Hobart, or Melbourne with Sharp Airlines or a privately chartered aircraft. Alternatively, there is a weekly barge with Bass Strait Freight from Bridport and Tasmania docking at the port of Lady Barron. Hiring a vehicle is highly recommended as there is no public transport on Flinders Island.
Those looking for more of a challenge might want to opt for the Mount Strzeleck Trail for a steep but rewarding climb with winning views over Trousers Point and the surrounding bays and islands.
