Autumn Produce – Ripe and Ready for the Picking

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 13/03/2018

As we head further into Autumn, you’ll be noticing the mornings are cooler and the longer summer days are over. Yet there are still plenty of reasons to enjoy Autumn, especially, if like us, you’re someone who loves fresh, in-season produce. Autumn on the peninsula brings crunchy apples and new season pears. The last of the seasons raspberries, strawberries and tomatoes are followed by pumpkins and autumn vegetables – so much deliciousness!

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.
