Never a dull moment on the Mornington Peninsula

Escape to the Mornington Peninsula any time of year and you will find plenty to keep you occupied. Enjoy local produce at the Red Hill Community MarketIf you don’t want to be standing in a queue for your icecream, sitting in traffic on the way to a vineyard or sharing the beach with hundreds of other people, then steer clear of the summer school holidays. The ideal time of year to enjoy this region is between February – April, while the weather is still warm and the kids are back at school!

It’s not all about relaxation and downtime on the Mornington Peninsula. There are plenty of festivals and events to get your party shoes on. Dress up and enjoy some bubbles at the Portsea Polo or Mornington Cup races. Enjoy some tunes at the Coolart Jazz Festival and Point Nepean Music Festival. Or peruse the portraits at the Archibald Prize Exhibition.
