Flinders Island can be reached by either plane or by sea. Airlines of Tasmania (ph. (03) 6359 2312 or fax (03) 6359 2087 or email flinders@airtasmania.com.au) offer flights to Whitemark (the island's main settlement) from Launceston and Moorabbin in Victoria.

There is no public transport on the island. Vehicles and bicycles are available for rent at Whitemark.

From Whitemark, take the B85 southest to the C806 turnoff, which leads to the park. From Lady Barron, take the B85 northwest to the C806 turnoff. After 6km along the C806, you will come to a sign and a stile on the left which marks the start of the walking track to Strzelecki Peaks. A further 2.5km will bring you to the turnoff to Trousers Point.

The coastal waters adjacent to the park are a popular boating destination because of the beauty of the area and the sheltered waters. There are boat ramps in relatively close proximity to the park at Whitemark, Lady Barron and Badger Corner.

If travelling in the area by car at night please drive carefully as wildlife often crosses the road.
