Some of our successes in the electorate include a major upgrade for water quality discharge at the Gunnamatta sewage outfall, $5 million for the construction of the Rosebud Aquatic Centre, $463 million to upgrade and secure the long term future of HMAS Cerberus, preservation of the quarantine station at Point Nepean as a public park and $6.5 million for Trade Training Centres at Rosebud, Somerville and Hastings.
Flinders is named after the famous explorer and navigator Matthew Flinders (1774–1814), who was the first person to circumnavigate Australia. The adoption of the name ‘Australia’ is due to him.
