The Flinders Nuthouse is a perfect little retro beach shack full of character, colour and collectables. An easy walk to Flinders town centre with all its fabulous shops and cafes. And an equally short walk to the Pier beach. It's a short drive to the ocean beach and the Peninsula's best wineries. The Nuthouse is great for couples and small families with kids.

Hi, we are Annie, Jamie & Dot. We are mad about all things retro, mid-century, quirky and fun. We spend every spare minute op shopping, garage sale-ing and treasure hunting to add more and more 'dust collectors' to our two lovely pads. A bit about us... Annie loves to sew and craft; Jamie loves to surf and paddle board. Dot loves to read and get creative. Between us we have three green thumbs; we like eating out and we love to travel. Our idea of a great holiday is feeling at home, even when we're hundreds of miles away. We've never been lovers of clinical rooms with all white sheets & towels and the bare minimum of crockery and decor. We love the busy, the colourful, the eclectic and the things that make you smile. We really hope our seaside pad 'The Nuthouse’ makes you smile as much as it does us :)

Swimming Snorkelling

Westernport Bay is a stunning location for swimming and snorkelling. Explore the crystal clear waters around the piers and take in the magical underwater sea creatures. During low tide it is also possible to snorkel the rock pools at the back beaches....

Exploring The Local Area

Flinders is uniquely positioned at the western tip of Western Port Bay, so it's the heel of the Mornington Peninsula's boot. So you can experience both the wind-protected and mellow bay beaches and the wild ocean shores in the same walk.

Flinders ocean beach features the protected Mushroom Reef, which offers an underwater paradise to ocean lovers and a myriad of breaks for surfers. Inside the bay, the jetty is ideal for scuba divers and snorkellers to discover weedy seadragons, colourful sponges, giant rays and octopus. The pier is also popular with anglers and jetty jumpers.

The bay is also a great place for kayaking and stand up paddling, with some gentle, long waves rolling on the points.

There's a load of great walking options, around the village, beaches or just down the road at the beautiful bushrangers Bay. For those more adventurous, the Two Bays Trail lets you explore the peninsula's green wedge which is rich in biodiversity.
