Overview

Flinders & Cape Schanck

Breathe the cleanest air in the world in Cape Schanck and hide away for a retreat around tiny, tranquil Flinders, with its architect-designed homes and gourmet dining options.

The rugged peninsula

Discover the peninsula's rugged side where Bass Strait and Westernport Bay meet around Flinders and Cape Schanck. Swap between the safe bay beaches and the crashing waves at Flinders Ocean Beach.

The cleanest air in the world

Fill a bottle with the air at Cape Schanck, which is bottled by CSIRO scientists after gale-force winds blow uncontaminated air directly from the Antarctic.

Explore the Cape Schanck Lightstation in Mornington Peninsula National Park, encountering kangaroos, swamp wallabies, possums and bats. Take the boardwalk out to the beach and rock platform and return for a night of ship-spotting and sleeping in the old limestone Keeper's Cottage.

Flinders on foot or by mouth

Set off on the 100-kilometre Mornington Peninsula Walk, or the shorter Two Bays Walking Track or Coastal Walk components for peaceful inlets, wild ocean coastlines, tranquil bush and native animals. Stay closer to home and traverse bluestone boulders to the ocean on the Flinders Blowhole Walk and follow the trail from Cape Schanck to Bushrangers Bay through fern gullies and eucalypt woodland.

Browse the tiny township's preserved streetscape, passing under quaint verandahs to the historic general store and post office. Shop up a storm in the antique stores and crafty corners.

Gorge at Mornington Peninsula Chocolates. Savour gourmet breakfasts without pretension at nearby Merricks General Store, and dine at the renowned Flinders Hotel.
