Flinders

Flinders - Mornington Peninsula - Victoria

Flinders is a popular holiday destination set on the south coast of the Mornington Peninsula. Inhale, what is said to be, the cleanest air in the world at Cape Schanck where CSIRO scientists literally bottle the pure, fresh air as it sweeps in from the Antarctic. Watch the world go by from one of the charming cafes under old fashioned verandahs and wander the tranquil, preserved streetscape sifting through treasures in antique and craft shops. Heritage buildings remain in the town that was known as a popular health and leisure centre in the 1880's adding to the grandeur of the enchanting atmosphere. Explore the peninsula's harsh extremities where Bass Straight and Westernport Bay converge and the crashing waves around Flinders Ocean Beach.

With air as flawless as this, getting out and about is the perfect antidote to reinvigorating the body and soul. Take on the Flinders Blowhole Walk negotiating bluestone boulders on your journey to the sea, traverse through lush fern gullies and eucalyptus woodland on the trail from Cape Schanck to Bushrangers Bay. After all your hard work, treat yourself to an indulgence of the taste buds at Mornington Peninsula Chocolates and gourmet breakfasts at Merricks General Store.

Spot kangaroos, swamp wallabies, possums and bats in the Mornington Peninsula National Park and explore the Cape Schanck Lightstation. Spend the night in the old Keeper's Cottage and watch the ships sailing past far out to sea. Flinders is also renowned as fine wine country, so head to Red Hill where vineyards are peppered throughout the area along with galleries, farm gates, cafes and restaurants. Get along to the legendary Red Hill Market held on the first Saturday of each month from September to May.
