Overview

Family activities

Replicate your own childhood summers and create lifelong memories for the next generation of endless sun-kissed holidays along Mornington Peninsula's bayside beaches.

Pitch a tent on a foreshore campsite, opt for budget accommodation or plump for something luxurious and while away the holidays. Swim, fish, snorkel and paddle in the calm waters with their expansive sandbars.

Keeping kids entertained

Take a nostalgic tour of the summer carnivals at Rye and Rosebud. Marvel at the spectacular creations at Frankston's annual summer sand sculpture festival and get lost in the multiple mazes down the peninsula. With nature all around, there's plenty to inspire wonder. Observe water and land creatures in their natural habitats with dolphin swims, wetlands visits and conservation area explorations.

Get adventurous with the little 'uns at The Enchanted Adventure Garden. Walk through 100-year-old Eucalypts on suspended rope bridges and wire balances, or fly across the park on the Zip Line.

Junior gourmands

A family holiday can still include Mornington Peninsula's famed gastronomic experiences. Hit the berry farms to pick your own fruit to guarantee full tummies, and meet the goats and sample their cheese at Main Ridge Dairy.

Amend the list of wineries to visit to those that cater for kids. Consider Yabby Lake for its kid's menu and activity table; Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove with its grassy areas, hidden sculptures and children's "wine"; and Stonier Wines' playground, cricket sets and boxes of toys.

Enter the evening with a twilight swim or at a foreshore barbecue, cooking up the day's catch.
