Welcome to the official tourism website of the Mornington Peninsula.

Other adventure & entertainment

Ride a railway, climb a lighthouse

Just when you think you’ve ticked off all the things to do here, you’ll find some more. Like…spooky ghost tours around Sorrento at night, when the Hon. George Coppin (1819 – 1906) may make his presence felt. Or lantern-lit tours in a wildlife sanctuary when rare nocturnal Australian animals emerge.

History buffs generally head straight for attractions such as the 1850s Cape Schanck lighthouse perched high on a cliff, or the old steam railway train that chugs between Moorooduc and Mornington.

Animals have endless appeal too, whether it’s the cute sheep and chooks on boutique farms or the impressive thoroughbreds lining up for the next race at Mornington.

For some old fashioned family fun, take the tribe to the Drive In at Dromana. With three screens it is one of only a few drive ins left in Victoria. Or for some new fun check out the huge new indoor swimming complex at Frankston, with an aquatic playground suitable for all ages.

Meet our birdlife and wildlife, and introduce your kids to some new cute and cuddly animal friends. Our wetlands, woodlands and coastal lands are havens for koalas, kangaroos, wombats, wallabies and thousands of native birds. If you're short on time, attractions such as our farmyard, wildlife park and nocturnal sanctuary will make it very easy for you to see koalas, kangaroos, wombats and wallabies, farm animals which the kids can cuddle or pat, and the creatures that only come out at night such as quolls, bettongs, owls and sugar gliders.
