Armchair Travel | The Crayshack, Flinders Island

Exploring the humble beauty & nautical charm of the Crayshack

Do you dream of remote islands with just a simple shack to protect you and be your base whilst you explore? Well, the Cray shack is for you!

 

 The Landscape

The Accommodation

The Crayshack is perched on Killiecrankie Beach, and although laid back,  it has the luxury of a fully kitted-out kitchen with a fridge full of fine local produce , a few beers & the best view from the kitchen sink ! This place immediately makes you feel as though you’ve shed many layers of modern life and are brought back to the basics of what is good & only what is necessary - sand on your feet, casual & simple, a beautifully curated ramshackle in all of the comfortable ways

A 15 min 4WD sand track through the farm takes you to Stacky's Bight Beach.  Cuttlefish line the tideline where giants of mottled orange lichen and grey stones lie sleeping, marking the magical point where the mountains meet the sea.
