Exploring Flinders in autumn, Westernport Bay

West view to Blow Hole

The Jetty and West Head

East view towards Shoreham

On Tuesday afternoon May 18, 2010, I went down to Flinders, on Westernport Bay, some 70 km south of Melbourne.

This is one of my favourite places, which I first visited in January 1952 on a YMCA beachwalk, on an excursion from our tented accomodation at Camp Buxton, Shoreham, 3 km to the east. Our camp was for disadvantaged kids aged 12-13 from across Victoria.

Now, 58 years later, I still enjoy Flinders!

On this occasion I did the 2 km return hike along the Ocean Beach, which looks much the same as it did back in 1952, with plenty of seaweed and good waves!

The view of the Jetty from the clifftop has changed! In 1952 there were very few houses to the east - now, residential development there has proliferated!

See all of the Photos of my visit!
