Local Heroes

Find hand picked and hand made local heroes

Makers, creators and innovators find their way to our picturesque region. For some it's a short journey; they were born here, for others it's a chance for a sea-change or tree-change. Along the way they collect passionate people around them and work hard to build experiences worthy of making memories. They are inspiring and committed. They work hard to make their dreams come true, and they want to share it with the world. These are our local heroes.

From sunrise to sunset, the Mornington Peninsula delivers wonderful experiences. Sometimes you need the local knowledge to find the extraordinary, and sometimes you think you know them but you can still be surprised. They give you the chance to find something different, try something new, and to share it with others. I AM Mornington Peninsula shares with you the stories of 10 of our local heroes, plus a selection of iconic experiences.

Discover some of the many talented makers, creators and innovators of our region. They give you the chance to find something different, try something new, and to share it with others. The welcome is personal and there is so much heritage and passion to share. I AM Mornington Peninsula helps you to find your way to meet them for yourself.

I AM the story of Woodman Estate

I AM the story of Woodman Estate

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 13/03/2019

Some places you can feel a sense of escape from the moment you arrive... and that's what happens when you venture up the winding driveway of Woodman Estate. If you look closely, there is more to this location than meets the eye. The backdrop to this fifty-acre exclusive retreat is a picturesque lake and bushland where the luxury country house retreat is well hidden away. You don't have to stay to enjoy the estate fare, or to pamper yourself at the wellness retreat, but you can if you want.

I AM the story of Bass and Flinders Distillery

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 6/03/2019

There is a whole lot of passion plus quiet determination behind the industrial façade of the Bass & Flinders Distillery, but it has always been so. This small distillery started as a project to hand craft small batches of grape-based spirits utilising premium locally sourced ingredients. To this day the distillery excels at creatively experimenting with unique Australian botanicals during the distillation process.

There is certainly something special about sharing a fruit picking adventure with friends and family in the open air and sunshine; especially when the berries are grown using sustainable farming practices and are so sweet and delicious.
