Summer days are best spent with a salty sea breeze, a stroll in nature and an ever-so-tasty ice-cream in hand. Seaford offers all that and more. Located between Frankston and Carrum and only a 36km drive from Melbourne’s CBD, it really is the epitome of a beachside suburb with cafes and restaurants delighting all.
This month, Mornington Peninsula Magazine is showcasing everything locals and visitors adore about the seaside town that is Seaford. Its residents speak of the native bushland, abundant selection of parks, unspoiled beaches, and the Seaford Wetlands, while the bustling industrial area provides commercial needs, kids’ activities and some edgy eateries, distilleries and breweries tucked down the side streets. Health services are easily accessible and varied with something for all, while unique and specialised retail spaces provide lots to peruse as you meander through the lively suburb.
Options are endless to keep your restlessness at bay. You could set out on a kayak along Kananook Creek, stroll along the Kananook walking trail, bike or walk along the Seaford pier, try to catch a fish, or jump in for a swim.
Whether you’re ever-so-lucky to live in Seaford or nearby, or if you’re just planning to visit for a day trip, you’ll always find your way.
