Thistle Cove

Not everyone is lucky enough to have a beach as gorgeous as this named after them. Thistle Cove takes its name from the master of a ship surveying this area of coast alongside Flinders in 1802.

Still largely as Flinders and Thistle would have found it, Thistle Cove is wild, undeveloped, and free of crowds as a result. Its facilities are limited to a single picnic table close to Whistling Rock, a vertical curving slab of granite near the beach which concentrates and reflects all manner of whistles and strange sounds.

Thistle Cove is split into two sections by a small freshwater stream that normally only runs after heavy rains, but makes the area of sand and granite rocks beyond the stream even less visited.
