A Trip to Flinders, New Year's Eve






These pix were taken at Flinders, 100 km south of Melbourne, on New Year's Eve, 2011.

My 3 km coastal exploration took me to the Ocean Beach, and the Jetty.

The Ocean Beach is a white sandy beach contrasted by the nearby basalt cliffs and rugged coast beyond.

A favourite family pastime is exploring the amazing rock pools of Mushroom Reef Marine Sanctuary, at the Ocean Beach. The tide was out a long way, exposing a huge mushroom-shaped rock platform extending from the beach. The reef is formed from ancient basalt and is famous for the diversity of marine life which make it their home.

Diving and snorkeling are popular activities on the subtidal reefs and a hang gliding ramp is available on the cliff top above Mushroom Reef.

This popular beach is easily accessible from a car park off Golf Links Road.

The Jetty is close to the town, and has been recently refurbished, and is now a "dual jetty" with the addition of a parallel concrete pier next to the ancient wooden structure. The new pier has a diving platform.
