Wine Food Farmgate Trail

Find Mornington Peninsula wineries, farm produce, restaurants and more

One of life's greatest pleasures is the Mornington Peninsula - a place where you can eat, drink, forage, shop, learn, and tour. Wine Food Farmgate reveals the Mornington Peninsula’s most delicious secrets. How do you get a sensational seasonal snapshot of the Mornington Peninsula? Just follow the Mornington Peninsula Wine Food Farmgate trail, where you can eat, forage, sip, shop, learn and tour the very best of this region.

Just drive through our region, and the Peninsula's love affair with wine, fresh produce, seafood and bountiful food on the table is quickly revealed. Taste it, sip it, pick it, catch it, take it home with you. Summer brings berries and cherries, while autumn is time for apples and pears.  In winter, forage through the hinterland for seasonal produce, warm up with a meal beside a roaring fire or enjoy your favourite tipple overlooking glorious countryside. Stride out on a beach walk then reward yourself with hot soup or a woodfired pizza and a glass of red wine in a seaside village. Return in the Spring for crisp, fresh vegies and cherry blossom. 

You will find many wine, food and farmgate experiences hidden away throughout the Mornington Peninsula. You just need to know where to look. To help you discover them, we've brought the finest together to create the Mornington Peninsula Wine Food Farmgate Trail.

Beautiful babies and family frolics…

Spring in the Mornington Peninsula gives you a chance to enjoy the wonderful fresh air with lots of family activities. Grab the kids, get out doors and meet baby animals of all sorts. We can't think of a better thing to do on the school holiday. We guarantee you will find fun things for the whole family – plus it gives you an excuse to be a big kid…

Come Meet Our Babies

The pouches are bulging with new life at Moonlit Sanctuary and Wildlife Conservation Park. It is home to the cutest swamp wallabies who are free to range through the melaleuca bushland around the Wallaby Walk.  As the joeys grow throughout Spring, so do the pouches. And feeding the mothers gets you up close for your chance to take a great photo (and enter their competition).

Baby goats are always fun, and there are just so many of these cuties bouncing around at Main Ridge Dairy. You can meet them and pat the babies on a special tour, and finish it all off with a gelato or cookie. So many photo opportunities.

At Rain Hayne Shine Farmyards the baby goats have loads of baby friends– ducklings, piglets, chickens and even goslings later in October. There are calves to feed with a bottle and loads of opportunities to cuddle and pat new friends. Just bring your smile and your gumboots. Oh, and there is a Grand Parade each day at 1pm during the School Holidays.

Green Olive at Red Hill has fun Farm Tours where you can feed the chooks and ducks, pat Gracie the pony and chat with the pigs, a great trampoline to try out or maybe cupcake decorating, farm art sessions, or pizza decorating.

A trip on Searoad Ferries between Sorrento and Queenscliff offers more than great views over the school holidays with pirate shows, craft activities, dolphin discovery workshops and even a special kids High Tea… complete with face-painting. Sign me up!

Adventure Zone

The famous Enchanted Adventure Garden has mazes and puzzles galore, tube slides, ziplines and tree-surfing suitable for all ages, but if you need some down time check out the sculpture trail and brand new garden redevelopments.

For the more adventurous over the school holidays, the Boneo Maze offers high energy rock climbing walls, bungee tramps, quad tramps and pedal boats, plus the mini golf and mazes. Thank goodness for the 1.5 kilometres of boardwalks through the wetland to relax on.
