We have gathered our top 5 ways to enjoy the long weekend and our newfound 25km of freedom.

Walk your way to some beautiful locations

Did you know that the Mornington Peninsula has hundreds of kilometres of walking trails?  With the limits being extended, there are more places for us to explore and, perhaps you might find a walk in your 25km that will take you to some of the most awe-inspiring locations in our region that are best discovered on foot.  Even better, they are free to access.

Retail Therapy

Who does not love a bit of retail therapy!  Our retailers have been closed, but they are opening their doors to welcome you back.  Set primarily in our quaint villages’ shops line the streets and have many cafes to compliment your journey, you might just find that piece you have been searching for.

Winter Wine Weekend

Traditionally Queen’s Birthday signals it is Winter Wine Weekend.  With the main event postponed until 24 July, why not check out a new winery within your 25km and celebrate wine with our vignerons this weekend.  Here is a list of all our wineries in the region that might be in your 25km!

Our top tip for this weekend is to plan ahead.  Venues will have different capacity limits and may book out quickly at popular times, get your mobile ready because it will also be QR Code time and most of all stay safe while having fun in your own backyard.
