The Flinders Peninsula keeps the waters of Frenchman Bay calms and practically wave-less throughout the milder months and is a great location for starting a walk or hike out onto the peninsula.

Just to the south visit Torndirrup National Park, where you can view the Gap and Natural Bridge rock formations as well as the noisy Blowholes and the turquoise waters of Jimmy Newells Harbour. Take a stroll around the nearby Stony Hill for a beautiful view of the entire National Park coastline.
