Starting from the car park at the end of Trousers Point Road, Strzelecki National Park, this return walk leads to Trousers Point via the Trousers Point Walk. Pristine white beaches in gorgeous bays, crystal clear waters and vistas of mountains and uninhabited islands make this the most photographed and celebrated beach on Flinders Island. This walk starts from Trousers Point Beach and follows a coastal track to Trousers Point, offering stunning views over Bass Strait islands. Before heading back, why not take a break once you reach the Fotheringate Beach with fascinating granite caves and limestone formations. You can backtrack your steps or opt for the quicker gravel road. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
