Western Port is a safe, deep water harbour used extensively by pleasure craft, fishing boats and commercial shipping. It is also home to a large pod of Bottlenose Dolphins. The Western Port pilot boat is moored at Flinders pier, also used by nearby Flinders Yacht Club, visiting yachts and other craft.
Five minute walk to Flinders Village shops, hotel, cafes, restaurants etc., tennis courts, Bowling Club and Public Golf Course. Flinders, until 50 years ago just a fishing village, is part of Australian history through the voyages and charting of Matthew Flinders and as the base station for the first undersea cable linking the mainland with Tasmania. The George Bass/Matthew Flinders memorial is just 100m from Five Oaks.
Walk or drive along Golf Links Road through the Golf Course (Bass Park) and pass
The West Head Gunnery Range, Department of Defence Gunnery School;
The Pilot Station, living quarters for the Western Port shipping pilots.
Detour down the cliff road to the ocean beach and the Mushroom Reef Marine Sanctuary. Mushroom Reef breaks the ferocity of the ocean waves and provides a sandy beach with safe swimming for small children. There is much activity in the many rock pools.
Back on Golf Links Road continue up the hill and see magnificent views of the rugged ocean surf beach. Pass the hang glider launching platform and car park near the sixth green where radio controlled model aircraft are often to be seen. Complete the circle back into Flinders Village past public tennis courts, park and very well-equipped playground.
The Mornington Peninsula, and Red Hill/Flinders in particular, is a renowned grape growing area and many of the wineries include tasting rooms or restaurants.
