Land Adventure & Attractions

Hinterland gardens and outdoor attractions

Maybe it’s time to drag yourself away from those beautiful beaches and explore the rest of the Mornington Peninsula. Up in the green hinterland are lots of adventurous attractions, and huge maze gardens have activities for everyone…go tree surfing or tube sliding, wander through beautiful landscapes or stroll along boardwalks through wetlands. The nightlife gets pretty intriguing too, with moonlit tours to see endangered wildlife, or relive your childhood at the drive-in. 

How do our gardens grow? Beautifully! Come and see a fragrant lavender farm, meandering hedge mazes, cottage gardens, formal gardens perfumed with rose bushes and gardens with towering trees from the 1860s. If you want to take home a little inspiration from the Mornington Peninsula, our garden centres, herb nurseries and gardening clubs will help with plants, seedlings, seeds and plenty of good advice.

With magnificent landscapes to explore and the sea almost surrounding us, the Mornington Peninsula has about as much adventure as you can take. Discover a wealth of family friendly attractions. Surf the tree tops or hand feed tame wallabies. You could stay here for a week and still not discover all our wildlife and adventure experiences. It’s impossible for kids to be bored on the Mornington Peninsula. There are lighthouses to climb, mazes to explore, and luscious strawberries to be picked from November through to April. On the coast you can hire bikes and cycle almost to the tip of the Peninsula at Point Nepean National Park.
