kipli – an unforgettable dining experience!

We embrace the philosophy of minimising our carbon footprint on Flinders Island and our planet by sourcing fresh local produce in season. Flinders Island is a rare pristine environment which is home to plentiful seafood such as crayfish, scallops and scalefish.

The kipli dining experience takes us all on a culinary journey at the Furneaux Tavern. Based on the best local produce on offer, our menu is in a continual evolving mode reflecting changes of season and availability of produce. The name ‘kipli’ has been chosen meaning ‘to eat’ in the language of the original Palawa Tasmanian inhabitants. This signifies a return to origins, the concept of communal sharing and the enjoyment of fresh locally grown and raised produce.

We also have a varied wine list and are the main stockists for the local award winning ‘Unavale Vineyard‘ wines. The grapes are grown here on Flinders Island just 4 kms from the Tavern and is where the entire winemaking process takes place.

Let us help you match a local wine to complement your dining experience or explore the possibilities yourself. Come and join us on the journey!
