Thetraveljunkie.org – The other day, we went to Flinders in Mornington Peninsula, which is about a 30 minutes drive from Blairgowrie. Flinders Pier is located at the point where Western Port meets Bass Strait and has great views across Western Port to Phillip Island. The pier is 250 metres long, jutting out from the protected beach and is sheltered from the waters of Bass Strait by West Head.
This area is popular for sailing, fishing, diving, and other watersports, and is well known for the abundance of squid caught, especially during spring months. Numerous other species have been caught off this jetty, including: King George whiting, Australian Salmon, silver trevally, wrasse, leatherjackets, barracouta and short finned pike.
Here’s a little snippet of photos from the trip:
Wishing health and safety to you all during these extraordinary times.
