World Expeditions has launched a new Eco-Comfort Camp on Tasmania's remote Flinders Island featuring seven safari-style private sleeping tents with a communal recreation and dining platform.

The private beachfront camp is fuelled by solar power, rainwater is collected for camp usage, toilets are compostable, and all the semi-permanent structures are packed away during the off season.

Hikers summit the island's most spectacular peaks of Mt Killiecrankie and Mt Strzelecki under the leadership of two wilderness guides with the eco-comfort camp acting as a nightly base.

Flinders Island is known for an array of ecosystems from dunes and lagoons to woodland and granite ridges.

“Our Larapinta Eco-Comfort Camp is much loved by those hiking in the Northern Territory” says Sue Badyari, CEO of World Expeditions.

“We wanted to bring that same level of comfort in a wilderness location to Australia's island of adventure, Tasmania. Flinders Island's unique ecosystem, rugged nature and remote location is ideal for the eco-conscious traveller who likes to sleep in a bit of comfort.”

The six day Flinders Island Walking Adventure in Comfort is fully guided and includes five nights in camp, five breakfasts, six lunches and five dinners. High quality camping gear is provided.
