Local business is the lifeblood of the Mornington Peninsula. The Mornington Peninsula Shire applauds the innovation shown by businesses to reconnect to their customers in new ways over summer. The Shire urges everyone – community members, organisations and businesses – to consider how we spend, recommend and utilise local services.
Open for summer, local business looks a little different. Many of our food businesses have embraced outdoor dining, an opportunity to experience culinary delights and a cold beverage while soaking up the sun and fresh air. Locals and visitors can enjoy outdoor spaces with loads of atmosphere, including a variety of outdoor music programs across townships to entertain and inspire.
There is no better time to explore our local region. Rediscover outdoor adventures, world-class food and wine, craft brewing and distilling, art and culture. Through your support, local tourism businesses can continue to deliver their unique offerings.
Need a big job done? Maybe you’re a business, organisation or school that needs to tender for some work. Think local and employ local contractors and consultants.
