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 sand sculptures, get lost in the multiple mazes, and observe water and land creatures in their natural habitats with dolphin swims, wetlands visits and conservation area explorations.

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.
