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.

One More Summer Adventure

Despite the school holidays having nearly come to a close, the potential for discovery and delight along the Mornington Peninsula remains undeniably strong. Between our divine bay waters and charming farmgates of the hinterland, we have compiled together with the best opportunities on offer to make those final days of adventure as memorable as they can be, as you explore more of our wondrous region.

There’s no doubting the magnificence and splendour of our many beaches and coastal retreats. Offering the chance to take calming sea bathes or simply soak in the sunshine on the sand, these carefree destinations make for an ideal stopover with all members of the family. We recommended taking a look at our Top 5 Swimming Beaches For Summer, which represent the most suitable locations for paddling and making a splash with the younger ones. Pack the cricket set, pack a picnic and pack the sunblock essentials…our beaches are ready for your arrival.

So, who doesn’t love a treasure hunt? Here along the Mornington Peninsula, our treasures take the form of sweet red cherries and strawberries, tucked away amongst lush green vines at leading farmgates. Meander through the verdant settings alongside both younger and older relatives and let your own game of I-Spy reach new heights. Red Hill Cherry Farm, Ripe ‘n’ Ready Cherry Farm and Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm all offer the much-loved pick-your-own experience…who are you taking with you?

It’s a purely remarkable experience to take to the heights and witness adventure from new perspectives and angles. Whether it be finding a seat on the Arthurs Seat Eagle and embracing panoramic views of the region 314 metres above sea level, or Tree Surfing with ziplines and swinging rope bridges at Enchanted Adventure, it’s time to let your inner thrill-seeker come alive…and thrive. Themed gardens and mesmerising mazes are also on offer at Enchanted Adventure, helping lead to an unforgettable day trip for all.

Having the opportunity to spot or even get up close and friendly with native Australian animals along the Mornington Peninsula is one experience that should not be overlooked. Between Rain Hayne and Shine Farmyard, Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park and The Briars, all members of the family can enjoy forming special new acquaintances with furry friends, whilst surrounded by stunning bushland and thriving flora. Just be cautious though, a cuteness overload is to be expected…

Looking for something a little bit different to cap off your time with us here along the Mornington Peninsula? Treat you and your loved ones to a night under the stars with a classic or contemporary film at the Dromana 3 Drive In. Or make more of the enchanting nighttime through an exceptional glamping experience at Iluka Retreat…there’s nothing quite like it.

As we continue to move into the New Year, it quickly becomes time to start preparing for all the milestones and dates which stay prominently printed on our calendars. But before we start on the back-to-school journey, let’s take one more moment to explore more of this inspiring region…the summer fun here is truly endless.
