About Us

Sammi Gowthorp and Megan Morphett are two city girls (but with big country hearts).

For us it’s always been fun to find new things to do that expand our hearts and our minds.

Moving here (within a few months of each other) our skills from the city helped us to hit the ground running and then it didn’t take long for us to connect.

Our love of discovering Flinders Island brought us together.

We want to share what we have found and what we have yet to uncover!

Discover how creative and how kind this big-hearted island is.

There’s a whole lot to explore!

    Great stories followed up by cool photography – I’m moving to the island in early Jan 2014 after a stint in Antarctica and I have to say reading these stories has excited me further towards flinders. Keep up the good work girls!!
