Whitemark has a population of around 150 and is the administrative centre for Flinders Island and overlooks Parrys Bay on the west coast.

The town is about 10 ten minutes' drive from the airport. Most of the island roads are unsealed. The other major centre is Lady Barron, at the southern end of the island. It has a supermarket, tennis courts, wharf, and restaurant. In the northwest is Killiecrankie where you will find a small general store.
