French Island is a unique destination. The island runs completely off the grid with no mains water or electricity, there is virtually no traffic, and the 170-square kilometre island is two-thirds national park. Travellers looking for a nature-based experience can travel around this rugged, unspoilt island with Naturaliste Tours – all just a stone’s throw from Cowes and Stony Point in the heart of Westernport Bay.

Visit the historic remains of Blue Gums Homestead, learn about the history of the island and see this early settler farm including the refurbished chicory kiln.  Beautiful vistas, sandy coastline and wildflower displays.  Wildlife spotting along the way includes koalas and birds of prey.

Local tour guides will share their knowledge of the natural environment, wildlife and history of French Island during the tours.  The purpose built four-wheel drive vehicle can accommodate up to 12 passengers while touring the rugged, unspoilt island in air conditioned comfort.
