What do you do when you're heading to Sorrento for lunch but get stuck in traffic barely moving at Rosebud and still have another 20 kilometres to get there?
[ADVERT]You turn onto Boneo Road and head straight to Flinders.
Why? There is no traffic and it's a lovely country drive as you go over the rolling hills of farm land with magnificent ocean views, Bushrangers Bay walking track and Flinders tomatoes onto Flinders township are a few attractions.
Although a popular tourist destination, Flinders still has a sleepy coastal town feel about it and is never so full that you can't enjoy it's atmosphere.
A stroll through town sees us at the Mornington Peninsula handmade chocolate shop. Yes, they are expensive, but taste sensational and I recommend you have a look (unfortunately they do not allow photographs to be taken inside the shop).
You will also find a wonderful rustic general store, fashion boutiques, gift shops, real estates, cafes, restaurants and much more.
Walking past the Flinders Hotel (which is extremely popular) to the end of the road, you will come to this amazing view of Flinders Pier and Western Port,where you can see all the way across to the Nobbies on Phillip Island.
