Bass Strait is the ferocious stretch of ocean that separates mainland Australia from Tasmania. Antarctic driven swells are magnified in the strait, creating powerful, wild storm waves. It is twice as wide, and twice as rough as the English channel.

It is in this wild stretch of sea that Flinders Island sits.

It is one of the most famous and legendary lamb producing regions in the world.

The strong winds from Bass Strait whip up trace amounts of ocean elements and deposit them onto the pastures on the island.

British and European breed lambs raised here are renowned for the unique and delicate flavour of their meat. The effect of these trace ocean elements is where the lamb on Flinders Island derives its special name from – Saltgrass Lamb.

Knowing it comes from such a beautiful landscape, I wanted to tell you how much I liked it– delicious.
