Winter Wander Events

Slip into hot springs, meet furry animals, ride high in a gondola, rug up for a walk, or drop into local galleries and gourmet food stores. Take a winter wander along the Wine Food Farmgate Trail and discover warm open fires perfect for sipping cool climate wines alongside. You ‘ll find food at almost every turn, with each offering slightly different to the next. A perfect excuse to wine and dine the winter away…  There's some great special offers, events and accommodation packages to choose from.

Take the day, or take a few, and choose your own Winter wander of the Mornington Peninsula below.
