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

Looking out to a horseshoe shape bay of crystal clear waters and lichen covered boulders The Cray shack is located on Flinders Island in Bass Strait. Earlier this year we flew from Hobart & then bumped along sandy roads to to create a ‘design disturbance’ at this perfectly humble beachside shack.

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

Forest

 

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.

Offering unique attractions such as the renowned "Killiecrankie diamonds" and award-winning organic olive oil. Swimming, diving, rock climbing, and photography make up just a few of the pastimes here, making it the perfect place for connecting back to nature.

    Woolooma Glass House
