Many of Mornington Peninsula’s most popular attractions can be found within easy driving distance of Flinders, so it is a great place to base yourself while you are in town. Two sights that should top every visitor’s to-do list is the fabulous Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens and the much-loved Ocean Eight Winery. Two other worthy points of interest that are close by Flinders are the Ten Minutes By Tractor Wine Co and Paringa Estate.
There are many natural gifts here as well, so don’t miss the nearby green spaces. The conservation preserves such as the Mornington Peninsula National Park in Cape Schanck and the Redhill Recreation Reserve in Red Hill, give visitors an insight into the animals and plants that flourish in the region.
Unwind on the fairways and tee off at the National Golf Club in Cape Schanck and the Cape Schanck Golf Course.
For those travelling without kids there are some great places to spend time, such as Stonier Winery in Merricks, the Main Ridge Winery in Red Hill and Paradigm Hill.
When it’s time to slow down after a long day exploring the many charms of Flinders, check in to one of the area’s convenient bed-and-breakfast, hotel and short-stay apartment options. Make reservations for the Flinders Hotel, the Lindenderry At Red Hill, or the Cape Schanck Lightstation.
