Inspiring Autumn Gardens

Inspiring Autumn Gardens

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 16/04/2018

Autumn is the time when the normally green leaves of many deciduous trees and shrubs start to take on shades of red, yellow, pink, brown and magenta. These blazing colours make it a perfect time to take a drive through the Mornington Peninsula and discover the many beautiful gardens that abound. It won’t take you long before you will find yourself marvelling at maples, liquid ambers, beech and pin oaks in transformation. If you dabble in photography you’ll want to pack the camera to capture the beauty, especially when the light is just right.

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 28/03/2018

The Mornington Peninsula boasts some of Victoria’s most spectacular walking landscapes, and the 100km Mornington Peninsula Walk is a worthy challenge. Along the way you can explore our beautiful bushlands, spot kangaroos and birds, gaze over deserted ocean beaches of our national, marine and state parks, discover early history at Point Nepean, Cape Schanck and Collins Settlement Site and enjoy popular bay beaches as you trek the southern Peninsula. You can complete the whole walk over several days, or enjoy it over several visits.

Find Your Way To Flinders

Find Your Way To Flinders

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 22/01/2018

Way back in 1797 Western Port was named by the 26-year-old explorer - surgeon George Bass when he piloted an expedition from Sydney in an open whale boat (can you imagine it!) into this extensive tidal bay - the second largest bay in Victoria. His good friend and explorer Matthew Flinders later named the sea between the mainland and Tasmania after him, calling it Bass Strait. It pays to have friends in high places! Fast forward fifty years and the site of Flinders (yes, named after Matthew Flinders) was established as a fishing settlement and sits at the point where Bass Strait meets Western Port.
