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.

Public Art comes to life across the Mornington Peninsula

The Mornington Peninsula Shire in collaboration with schools, foreshore committees, historical societies, chambers of commerce and artists, have developed an augmented reality trail from Portsea to Rosebud. Seven sites have been transformed by augmented reality experiences to bring them to life in new ways.

Through an innovative use of new and emerging digital technologies, these experiences offer fun, free ways to explore this beautiful region and interact with public art. Young and old alike can watch the fisherman bobbing in his rubber duck trying to catch the cheeky fish at the Fisherman mural at the new Napier Street Plaza in Rye by Mika Husser.
In Tootgarook see the Dolphins and Old Wives murals by Sheldon Headspeath come to life, including drawings of marine life by local school students from Capel Sound Kindergarten and Tootgarook Primary School.
In Blairgowrie observe humpback whales swimming around you or play with a virtual kite on the Rosebud Foreshore, the site of the Kite Festival. Step back in time in Sorrento and Portsea and imagine what the streets were like more than 100 years ago. 

To experience the augmented reality trail, view and interact with animations and soundscapes via a smart phone or tablet. Download the free app ‘EyeJack’ or scan the QR code on the site.
