From dense bushland to windswept beaches, Mornington Peninsula is a great add-on to a seaside holiday. And there's no shortage of lookouts marking the best views. It's a super family-friendly destination with plenty to keep the kids and the grown-ups busy and engaged. Drop by a winery, explore a maze garden or taste the delights around the Peninsula.
Board a state-of-the-art gondola at the Arthurs Seat Eagle and fly over the state forest to the highest point of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. You will be torn between looking at the breathtaking view across the bay to the city and spotting wildlife as you soar high above the trees. Either way you have a bird’s eye view!
After many years of planning, work began on constructing the Arthurs Seat Eagle in October 2015 and now Visitors can board the all new gondola.
With a number of things to do and animals to pat, The Big Goose is a great addition to the Mornington Peninsula.
The Big Goose is a good mix of cute'n'cuddly critters and fun activities for your Melbourne kids.
There's plenty of small fluffy animals to pat, including chicks, rabbits and guinea pigs. And a not-so-fluffy Black Headed Python.
A row of aviaries hold a variety of native and exotic birds.
If you haven't already heard of The Hungry Peacock, then make your mark for this kid-friendly cafe on the Mornington Peninsula. The Hungry Peacock cafe is the perfect place for families to enjoy great coffee and treats or a bite to eat while the kids can explore both indoors and out. A true haven. Definitely made with kids in mind.
Inside there's long wooden tables adorned with baskets of wooden blocks and props for creative play. The smalls will love creating a prehistoric scene with small dinosaurs and blocks while enjoying a babycino and sandwich. There is a home corner play kitchen and a construction area too - both bound to be a hit. A racetrack on the wall is a great spot to have that car race with a friend.
