Spring Things Events

Spring means the sun warms the ground again, the buds burst from dormant twigs and the you‘ll find fresh produce at almost every turn. It's a great time to meet baby animals, tour amazing gardens, drop into local galleries, book a class or a pop into gourmet food stores. There are floating birthday parties, limited release wines and new release gins to experience. You can find ideas for families, friends or just for two. With plenty of Spring Things along the Wine Food Farmgate Trail this time of year is a perfect excuse to find your next favourite dining spot. 

Take the day, or take a few, and find a few of your favourite Spring Things to do on the Mornington Peninsula during September, October and November. There are some great events to choose from below.
