AN AFTER HOURS ART WALK
The mutton bird plays an integral role in the history and culture of Flinders Island and surrounds with more than one million birds using the area as a rookery each year. As part of the Flinders Island Food & Crayfish Festival, Flinders Island District High School art students and other local artists have created works that speak to the community’s ongoing relationship with mutton birds and island life generally.
This self-guided art walk meanders through the galleries and spaces of Whitemark to showcase local talent, history and culture. Some venues will also be offering food and drink available to purchase.
