Between the bustling cafe culture, popular racecourse and pop-up street markets, there’s always something going on in Mornington. This beachside town is one of the largest on the Mornington Peninsula, while still retaining a village vibe.
Mornington is a rich with historical landmarks and tourist attractions, including the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, 1860s mansion Beleura House and Mornington Museum (the town’s former post office), but nowadays is best known for the long strip of restaurants, cafes and shops that line the Main Street, home to popular boutiques like Herman Store, Eco D. and Aurelia Boutique, along with a slew of upscale homewares and gifting stores.
Food and wine events such as Peninsula Picnic, Wednesday Morning Markets and the Main Street Festival attract thousands to the town annually.
The village atmosphere and beautiful beaches (Mothers Beach, Scouts Beach and Mills Beach Lookout to name a few) make Mornington a Peninsula treasure, loved by a locals and tourists. The town centre runs straight down to the foreshore where you’ll find a yacht club, playground and lookout point with panoramic views of the bay, and across to the Melbourne city skyline.
Mornington is the gateway to the Peninsula, making it great for an impromptu day trip (less than an hours’ drive from the Melbourne CBD) or a quick pit stop (and shop) as you head further south.
