Slipping into spring and some September sunshine…yes please Mother Nature. Bathe me in all the warmth you can muster up because August on the Mornington Peninsula (and most of Victoria) has been nice and icy. But here’s when the real fun starts! Football and netball finals are in full swing and the potential for getting the washing completely dry on the line is high. The bulbs are rising to the occasion and blossom is adorning the fruit trees.
September promises so much and the Peninsula steps it up with a bunch of wonderful events to keep you busy. The perfect day trip from either the city, the Dandenongs or Gippsland, it’s time to get out those diaries and start planning your September adventures on the Mornington Peninsula!
