About us

Mornington Peninsula Magazine is a trusted community voice that informs, engages and entertains residents and visitors throughout the Mornington Peninsula, Frankston and Melbourne.

This is the most sought-after monthly magazine on the Mornington Peninsula and throughout Greater Frankston.

Mornington Peninsula Magazine is created locally and focuses on our community with engaging topics and features driven by our audience. Our unique square format readily identifies us as the darling of the Peninsula.

With more than four times the following of any other local magazine, we offer full multi-media promotion in print, online and on social media.

About us | Our story

Our story

In 2006, publisher Lisa Walton realised that local media did nothing to showcase the myriad of unique, bespoke and individual businesses and people within our community.  So she launched Mornington Life, a uber cool quarterly magazine delivered to Mount Eliza, Mornington and Mount Martha.  It was an instant success and quickly grew to cover the entire Mornington Peninsula.  In December 2013, Mornington Life was renamed Mornington Peninsula Magazine and became a monthly publication.  Already well established on social media, Mornington Peninsula Magazine grew in leaps and bounds as the preferred advertising medium over traditional newsprint.

Now with a following of more than 40,000 on social media and more than 110,000 readers a month in print and online, Mornington Peninsula Magazine is the media leader in the community.

Our mission

We strive to produce a high-quality monthly magazine for the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston that provides a balanced view of local current affairs and news, showcases local people and the arts, and gives the business community easy access to interested readers keen to support local. 

We offer print and digitally‐driven media delivering information about marketplaces, health services, arts and entertainment brands and providing a powerful connection between advertising and our large, diverse audiences.

Our vision

We are committed to continue growing as a unique and engaging Mornington Peninsula media service, and to evolve as readers become more adept at finding their local news, products and services online.

Our magazine empowers and enriches the lives of tens of thousands of people with its independent, quality content and photography.

Our promise

Honesty, trust and integrity define the way we work. In all our dealings with our colleagues and external partners, we maintain transparency and take accountability.

We will always stay true to our values of support for local business, care for our environment, respect for our Indigenous heritage, and commitment to the arts, and we will always offer a unique and personalised service to our advertisers as well as engaging and informative stories for our readers.
