Everywhen Artspace

A cracking new gallery has opened in Flinders run by highly regarded art writers, curators and gallerists, Susan McCulloch and Emily McCulloch Childs. The big, bright and architectural space replaces the McCullochs home gallery Whistlewood as their exhibition venue.

Big Blue Backyard

Words truly can’t describe Big Beautiful Backyard but if you’re after a laid back escape where you can hole up and do exactly as you please  – think Henry Miller - then follow this through. A true couples only retreat, BBB is nestled between the sand dunes and tea trees of St Andrews Beach and its magnificent rugged ocean.

Flinders Shed

Flinders in the past 12 months has undergone a renaissance with the addition of galleries, restaurants, cafes and bars but a standout over the years has been Flinders Shed. Head here if you wish to check out this cool shop that stocks contemporary and avant-garde brands. Inconspicuously tucked between two art galleries, this family-owned boutique - run by mother and daughter team Chris and Nat Lawrance, Flinders Shed has created something of a cult following as the boutique is known for showcasing independent designers and is widely considered a haven for those seeking hard-to-find labels.

Alatonero

A long-term love affair with Santorini, and a passion for Greek food, has brought a new culinary vibe to the Mornington Peninsula. Across the road from the McCrae lighthouse (at what was The Pavilion), Alatonero is giving diners the opportunity to enjoy well known and much loved Greek delicacies. With an impressive resume in the food world, and with energy and drive to burn, Jacqui Poulier found the perfect location for her new venture, where she has brought to life her love of food, cooking, people and stories. The restaurant is light, bright, open and airy with a fresh sea breeze that drifts through the open plan dining area.

MP Skin Check

It's not a stretch to say that we're all familiar with the "slip, slop, slap" message; however, new research says the risk of skin damage under the sun's rays must be taken more seriously. In a world-first study, researchers from the ANU and NZIWAR found that, on average, regions like the Mornington Peninsula and cities like Melbourne only experienced two days a year where there wasn't enough UV to get sun damage. Two days! They found that even if the UV index is low and if you're outside for more than 15 minutes... you're at risk. Making sure you prioritise a skin check is just as important as a health check.

Beach Retreat

Marrying striking architecture and enviable positioning within paces of South Beach, this striking four-bedroom home offers all the spoils of seaside living for permanent residents or holidaymakers alike. Gazing out across the Western Port coastline and a cobalt expanse of the bay, the spacious two-storey design flaunts elegant living areas on both levels, while a dedicated dining zone beneath a high cathedral ceiling is flanked by tall sliding glass doors opening to an entertainer’s balcony back dropped by the bay.
