3931 – Flinders
The historic town of Flinders is located at one of the most southern points of the Mornington Peninsula. First settled in 1864, the place was named by George Bass after his friend, the explorer and British naval officer Captain Matthew Flinders. It remains a small township today, with a permanent population of just 871 (2011 Census figures).
Cook Street is the town’s main road, which runs through the central shopping strip to the cliff tops overlooking Bass Strait. A meal at the iconic Flinders Hotel is a must. It’s located at the beach end of Cook Street and even after several facelifts over its lifetime has remained the town’s most popular dining and entertainment establishment.
Properties sell for varying prices in Flinders, however there is no shortage of outstanding million dollar plus homes and hobby farms. The views out to sea are nothing short of breathtaking from some addresses. Several beautifully renovated period homes also take pride of place along Cook Street.
Features of the town include the Flinders Golf Club – a stunning golf course built on the cliff top, the long standing Flinders Yacht Club, and the 250 metre long pier out from a nicely protected area of the beach. This spot is popular for sailing, fishing, and diving. Out to the west, the rugged coastline of Flinders is particularly pretty and an inspirational place for painters and artists. The Flinders Art Gallery displays many local artists’ works.
Flinders is served by the 782 bus route from Frankston, operated by Peninsula Bus Lines.
