February sees the summer weather continue and there are lots of great activities to enjoy in the outdoors. Try learning to scuba dive or swimming with dolphins. You’ll find an amazing underwater world that really does rival Australia’s northern coast for its incredible colour and marine life. You can also go surfing, sailing or stand up paddle boarding, cast a lazy fishing line from a pier or book a fishing charter. Away from those beautiful beaches you will find lots of adventurous attractions. Huge maze gardens have activities for everyone… go tree surfing or tube sliding, wander through beautiful landscapes or stroll along boardwalks through wetlands. And the award winning Wine Food Farmgate trail reveals 75 of the Mornington Peninsula’s most delicious secrets – from picking fresh fruit to tasting and dining.
Drop in on glass blowers as they create brilliant glass art, call into fabulous art galleries, picnic in a sculpture park or amid the spectacular coastal scenery of an art trail. Weekend and mid-week markets are great places to connect with local food producers, artists and crafts people. Shopping centres are small and friendly, antique outlets overflowing with special finds. Discover farm shops or visit more than 30 villages with superb art galleries, boutique shopping and tempting gourmet food stores.
