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.
Winter flowering Hellebores (Winter Rose), Camellias, and Rhododendrons add a splash of crimson and pink to the gardens with some Bluebelles thrown in and you've got a beautiful setting under the old woodland trees.
Combine this with Australia's oldest and most famous traditional Hedge Maze and you're all set for a magical family day out of the City.
Dinosaur World invites visitors to step into a world with a prehistoric past, turning back the pages of time, when dinosaurs were the only creatures that roamed the earth.
If you've got a dino obsessed little one then this is the place to explore! Large electronic dinosaurs aren't the only star here, you can explore the 'dig and discover' area (for an extra charge) searching high and low for buried fossil and even take it home. There's even a walking dinosaur 'Wilson' who you'll get to meet up close.
Montalto is all that, and some more. Great wine, great food, great location and great vibe.
The open-air Piazza Café (open weekends) dishes up pizza, warming winter soups, and summer salads.
The setting is fantastic and will keep you coming back again and again. It's here you could enjoy a different experience within the restaurant looking out to the olive grove, sculptures and vines or eat under the umbrellas and shade in the family-friendly piazza.
