Jomo Travel has been on a break but we’re back with our Twelve Days of Summer series, focusing on the Mornington Peninsula near Melbourne.
On Day 1 of the series we’re taking a trip to Flinders on the southeast side of the Mornington Peninsula.
Originally a tiny fishing village, Flinders is now a charming beach town brimming with art galleries, gift shops, cafes and restaurants.
The sea around Flinders Pier is popular for fishing, sailing, scuba diving and snorkelling – with the potential for sightings of seals, stingrays and Victoria’s iconic weedy sea dragon
Around the other side of Flinders, on the ocean beach side, you’ll find surfers, picturesque walks and great rock-pooling in the Mushroom Reef marine sanctuary.
And it’s hard to beat the ocean views from the Flinders Golf Course, which can be enjoyed whether you’re playing golf or simply driving, cycling or walking around the perimeter.
Flinders is in close proximity to some of the best food and wine producers in the Mornington Peninsula and we’ll be showcasing our choice of places to eat, drink and play in the area over the next 11 days.
