Mornington Peninsula Mushroom Meanders

Mornington Peninsula Mushroom Meanders

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 14/05/2018

Mushrooms are packed with antioxidants and a major source of protein, fibre, vitamins B and C, and they taste delicious! On the Mornington Peninsula there are people with a passion for mushrooms in all sorts of ways: foraging, cooking, eating. You can even try a mushroom cappuccino! There are some 10,000 species of funghi in Australia (not all of them are edible), so for those wanting to get close to the source, we suggest joining some experienced mushroom hunters. Don your gumboots and enjoy a guided ramble. You’ll be surprised at how much you learn along the way.

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.

Discover distilled deliciousness and beautiful brews

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 18/12/2017

Although beer is one of the world's oldest prepared beverages, possibly dating back to the early Neolithic or 9500 BC, there is nothing old-hat about the brewers, cidermakers and distillers of the Mornington Peninsula. Yes, the local wine industry is well established but now there's some sibling rivalry in the local cellar door scene. There’s a new world of handcrafted beer including seasonal releases, local apples made into whole-juice cider, and artisan distillers creating distinctive gins, vodkas, limoncellos and more.
