Furneaux Tavern

11 Franklin Parade Lady Barron Australia


Furneaux Tavern provides comfortable accommodation at Lady Barron on Flinders Island, north-east of Tasmania. Situated on the shores of beautiful Adelaide Bay, enjoy the panoramic water views. Furneaux Tavern offers 12 units set amongst an acre (0.4 hectare) of native gardens. The units are spacious with queen-size and king-single beds. All units are appointed with en suite bathrooms and have tea and coffee making facilities. The tavern offers fine dining in the Shearwater Restaurant and arguably one of the island's best views from the bar. The view stretches across Franklin Sound, studded with picturesque islands. The restaurant has a comfortable atmosphere with open fireplaces and soaring ceilings. The Tavern Bar serves hearty counter meals and a take-away option is also available. While you are on the island, book a boat charter and discover the excellent fishing opportunities off shore, or cast a line in from one of many unspoilt beaches. Plan a bushwalk in Strzelecki National Park with its extraordinary jagged peaks, just a short drive away. You can also visit Wybalenna Historic Site and the Furneaux Art Gallery, providing intriguing history about the island. Flinders Island is a 1 hour flight from Melbourne or 30 minutes from Launceston.
