The point where Western Port meets Bass Strait, it is believed that George Bass named the area after his friend, explorer and British Naval Officer Matthew Flinders. An exceptional area for all kinds of watersports including sailing, fishing and surfing, Flinders also hosts one of Victoria’s best rock platform reefs, popular for recreational diving and snorkeling. The town features a picturesque golf course atop a cliff, a yacht club and a pier out from the protected beach, sheltered from the waters of Bass Strait. A tranquil area, Flinders offers many bushwalking trails and beautiful coastal areas, not to mention the over 125 year old Flinders Hotel – if only those walls could talk!
