    The Best Getaways In Victoria

    Flinders and Surrounds with Eve Wilson

    TDF’s beloved photographer Eve Wilson takes us on a tour of her home turf – Flinders on the Mornington Peninsula. Eve grew up in Flinders, and generously shares all of her local tip-offs, tinged with blackberry stained nostalgia of an idyllic coastal childhood. This tour of Flinders is dripping with cherries, strawberry ice-cream against the rugged cliffs, and tiny beaches overlooking Bass Strait.

    Check out Eve’s full tour!

    Gurney’s Cidery is in a beautiful position and has sublime views out over Corner Inlet and The Prom. It’s a family-run business and really well done. Photo – Eve Wilson for The Design Files.

    ‘Meeniyan square‘ is a community business initiative that has repurposed a disused piece of land next to the art gallery, to create an opportunity for smaller businesses and locals to come together and host weekly markets and events. Pictured – cakes by Tamsin Carvan, who now has a permanent presence at The Borough Department Store in nearby Korumburra.  Photo – Eve Wilson for The Design Files.

    Ross Farm Cabin, a gorgeous place to stay on the outskirts of Meeniyan, designed and run by young architect Andrea Moore. Photographic work on the wall of Wilsons Promontory by Andrea’s brother, Lachlan Moore. Furniture by Andrea and her dad (YES, they made that couch!). Bowl by Ella Bendrups. Photo – Eve Wilson.

    Elizabeth Barnett‘s top secret favourite spot in her hometown of Macedon – she won’t let us tell you exactly where it is… you’ll just have to make your way there, and discover this one for yourself!  Photo – Eve Wilson for The Design Files.
