By planeEdit

  • Sharp Airlines fly at least daily connecting Flinders Island to Launceston and Essendon in Melbourne. Essendon is a smaller airport in the north of Melbourne, so please allow sufficient time for connections.

If you are travelling in a group, then private charter may work out cheaper and more flexible.

By shipEdit

  • Furneaux Freight operates a service from Bridport to Lady Barron Port, Flinders Island. This takes around 8 hours and as of July 2019, it costs $75 one way, or $125 return. It occurs at least once a week, normally leaving Bridport on a Monday and returning on Tuesday. A schedule is on the website, but times can be changed at short notice. It is possible to transport cars, motorbikes, bicycles, etc., but you will have to pay a fee. To make a booking, you will have to email or call the office. Contact details are on the website.
