Leeka is a very small rural community on Flinders Island in the local government area of Flinders in the North-east of Tasmania. Leeka is located about 40 kilometres North West of the town of Whitemark. As at the the 2016 census, Leeka was identified as having a permanent population of less than 50 people. Leeka is made up of primarily larger coastal holiday homes, and features great fishing and beach options. To access Leeka from Whitemark, you travel North towards Palan on the B85 – Palana Road. Turn left on West End Road which commences at the intersection with the B85 some 28 kilometres north of Whitemark. The main roads between Whitemark, Lady Barron, and the turn off to Leeka are all bitumen and in very good condition. West End Road is gravel, but generally in reasonable 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.
