Enjoy spectacular rugged mountains, pristine shorelines and secluded bays. Unpack your snorkelling gear and fishing tackle, kayaks or bikes to enjoy every moment on this remote 70km-long island. Watch migratory Cape Barren geese or mutton birds at Settlement Point, fossick for ‘Killiecrankie diamonds’ (a type of topaz) and nautilus shells on the beaches or earn your next meal hiking the Strzelecki Peaks Walk. There’s a range of accommodation, from camping in the wilderness to luxe seaside resorts – or stay at a local farm.
