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.

I AM the story of Searoad Ferries

I AM the story of Searoad Ferries

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 14/06/2019

So; consider that back in the day roads were in a bad state and cars were just A to B transport – a ferry was just another addition to transport. But roads improved, and cars changed dramatically in the way of luxury, safety and entertainment so to continue to be ‘just transport’ the business would not survive. Today Australia’s most popular car and passenger ferry service, Searoad Ferries, connects the Mornington Peninsula to the Bellarine Peninsula and the Great Ocean Road and you’ll find it’s more than just a connection across the bay. This isn’t your stereotypical old and traditional transport service, it’s an experience. It’s everything from the warm welcome as you arrive, the incredible scenery, the great chance to unwind, or the surprise sighting of wildlife along the way. It really can be the best part of your road trip - and all you need to do is sit back and enjoy. You’ll find that there is more than meets the eye to Searoad Ferries.

I AM the story of Moonlit Sanctuary

I AM the story of Moonlit Sanctuary

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 2/05/2019

Behind Moonlit Sanctuary is a lifelong love for animals and a dream to make a difference that started almost 20 years ago. Unsurprisingly, the sharing of natural close encounters comes ‘naturally’ to this well-respected and multiple national award-winning Australian wildlife experience; to the unending delight of guests who get the chance to meet animals in a natural setting during the day, or on a guided lantern-lit evening tour. You can see this continuing love affair for yourself on a daily basis.
