Sunny 18.7°C

Can you believe we have nearly arrived at the end of spring? Here is a little nudge to entice you back into the great outdoors with four of our favourite Mornington Peninsula things to do during the final weeks of the season. We have activities both in and out of the water for you to experience:

Delightful Dolphin Swims

Dolphins are the socialites of the sea, and if swimming with these incredible creatures is on your bucket list (and let’s face it, why wouldn’t it be?), then spring is the perfect time to tick it off! Polperro Dolphin and Seal Swims, Moonraker Dolphin Swims and WaterMaarq in Sorrento each offer the amazing opportunity to meet the beautiful local dolphin population. All three of these businesses have won awards for their eco-friendly marine experiences.

Gone Fishing

Calling all fishing fans! Guided fishing experiences represent a great way to get acquainted with all the tips and tricks for finding the catch of the day. Timeout Fishing Charters in Rye are a top recommendation for family-friendly expeditions and for fishers of all abilities. They even throw in a visit to the seals on the way back to shore!

If you want to be the captain of your own ship, Mornington Boat Hire has several boats of various sizes. Select fishing equipment comes included on board, with no boat licence required! Tuition is available if desired.

Glorious Gardens

From colourful rose gardens to destinations rich in historical interest, the array of Mornington Peninsula gardens is as abundant as it is beautiful. Spring blooms bring out some of the most captivating colours of the year. And the warmer weather means there is plenty more time to enjoy these outdoor spaces comfortably. Make sure to have your camera with you when visiting!

Back To Nature

Spring is a great time to see native flora on show. And on the Mornington Peninsula, there are hundreds of acres of Local, State and National Parks to discover. While you may know of Cape Schanck Lighthouse Reserve, Point Nepean National Park and the famous Arthurs Seat State Park, there are so many additional locations to explore more of. Have you been to The Briars in Mount Martha? This hidden 230-acre gem offers nature walks with a wildlife sanctuary, wetland and plenty of space for picnics. Best of all, it’s free to visit!
