As at the the 2016 census, Lackrana was identified as having a permanent population of just 75 people. Lackrana is made up of primarily large rural farm holdings, and features lush green rolling paddocks with livestock being the main produce. To access Lackrana from Whitemark, you travel South towards Lady Barron on the B85 – Lady Barron Road. Turn left on to the C803 (Lackrana Road) which commences at the intersection with the B85 near the south-west boundary and runs north through the locality. The main roads between Whitemark, Lady Barron and Lackrana are all bitumen and in very good condition. Take care at dawn and disk as native animals are common on and near the main road.
Flinders Island can be reached by plane or sea; Sharp Airlines fly from Essendon Airport Melbourne (1-hour), from Launceston (35 mins) or from Hobart (1-hour). There is a shuttle service available for the short drive between the airport and Whitemark. You can also hire a car Whitemark, or a campervan or bicycle to get around the island. Please note there is no public transport on Flinders Island, so you will need some form of transport to get around. There is a weekly barge service operated by Furneaux Freight that travels between Bridport and Lady Barron which allows you to bring your own car, campervan, motorbike or bike to the island. Where possible, please avoid driving at night. You are sharing the roads with a large amount of native wildlife, so take it carefully, drive slowly to the conditions and watch out for animals on roads including wombats and wallabies.
