At Flinders Island Gourmet Retreat (FIGR)

Flinders Island Gourmet Retreat is suited to having small corporate retreats, special events and intimate weddings.

Cooking schools are one of our specialties but we mostly host groups seeking private time in one of Tasmania’s best places. 

We have 5 newly built rooms with en-suites plus a bunk room.

We have two small meeting spaces and a sheltered outside studio providing seaside views. There are opportunities to book scenic flights, golf, charter fishing, bushwalking or history and other tours of the island. Programs for partners are available too.

Our meals are presented with flair and originality using local produce - and seasonally, from our garden. We can supply some lovely wines and cordials to complement the meals.

Your room is private, snug and comfortable and you have a smart TV served by satellite. Your en-suite is bright and private.

Enjoy our little reading nook, browse our library and sit in a chair together with a N’Espresso coffee.

Stretch your legs along the paths down to the sea. Immerse yourself within a bush ‘chapel’.

Smell the beach and the salt-wet rocks. Feel the air move - and watch the eagles fly.

You are welcome to look at our Rates, Terms and Conditions, situated at the bottom of these pages.

Flinders Island Accommodation

Accommodation

My passion is sharing Flinders Island life, hosting guests, telling the stories, valuing and creating meals from Flinders Island to honour the environment, the seasons, and most importantly, my guests.

Cooma House cooking school

Cooking school

In my cooking experience I have worked with some of Australia’s leading chefs and developed my own approach. I offer a taste of Australia’s origins at my cooking schools as we have access to game, a flavour variation for our table. I am influenced by a fusion of French and Asian cooking styles which have evolved into our uniquely Australian cuisine. Go to the cooking school page.

Flinders Island events

Events & festivals

There are so many reasons to want to visit Flinders Island. The beaches, produce, the people, the fresh air, the walks, art and mountains.

If you need any more convincing there is always a special event or festival to get you excited, whether it’s food, fitness, art or fun, learn more about Flinders Island events.

Experience Flinders Island

 

There are walks through our private sculptured bush-land and the close by Strzelecki National Park. When the tide is out, at the bottom of the driveway, explore the petrified forest from millions of years ago, now found at the edge of the sea.  Come back and immerse your spiritual self in the labyrinth, shaped like a nautilus shell, or walk the beaches to find your own shells. Visit our world class Furneaux Museum for the stories of the first Anglo settlement south of Sydney and our First Australians.  Book a tour to see the Ramsar sites.  Have a game of golf on the most scenic 9 hole golf course or book a fishing tour through the necklace of islands surrounding you. Walk to the top of a mountain.  Feel the wind, see the clouds and watch them blow and shape their way across the sky. In the rainbow season, the colours wrap the world with smiles. Watch the sky darken as the mutton birds in their thousands circle home to their burrows at dusk.
