Flinders Beach


Flinders Beach area is located just a few minutes scenic drive from the peaceful township of Flinders. Here there is a leash-free area for dogs, bathing from the beach at mid to high tide and a popular pier which attracts many fishermen. There are two sheltered beaches on either side of Flinders Point called Dodds Creek (400 metre long) and Kennon Cove (1.2 kilometre long).

The Flinders Beach and pier area is a popular snorkelling and scuba diving site known for its weedy sea dragons, fish and octopus and a wreck at the end of the pier. When the tide is out the rockpools appear so it is best to check tide times before you arrive.

You will find a barbecue area and playground located near the car park south of the pier. Kennon Cove provides the best access and picnic facilities. The leash-free dog beach is located north of Dodds Creek, check signposts for restrictions.
