Everywhen Artspace in Flinders

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. A magical space and place.

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.

Red Hill Cheese. A Tasting Experience.

Part of the allure of visiting Red Hill Cheese is that it’s down a quiet country road, surrounded by a majestic natural environment in the forest. From the tasting room and deck, you can discover the different styles from the Cheese-maker’s selection of premium cheeses. From our perspective this is a tasting experience where visitors often return to discover new seasonal, artisan cheeses.

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. Greek food at its best

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.
