Overview

Flinders Island has a population of  just over 800, and the Doctor and Staff at Flinders Island Medical Centre take pride in providing excellent medical care to all patients.  Tasmanian Aboriginals were the first residents of Flinders Island more than 35,000 years ago, but ceased to exist by 2,000 BC.  The next known human contact was when Tobias Furneaux discovered Flinders Island in 1773, but he did not land.  In 1797, the merchant vessel Sydney Cove, en route from Calcutta to the new colony at Port Jackson, ran aground off Preservation Island, just south of Cape Barren Island. This had important consequences for the history of Australia, including the first European settlement south of Sydney Town, established by sealers at Kent Bay on Cape Barren Island; and, Australia’s first export industry, seal skins and seal oil.
