For some people, December is all the about the build up to Christmas, for some it’s about the end of the working or school year and others it’s all about Summer baby!!!
Bring on those beautiful beach days and weekend winery tours on the Mornington Peninsula where it’s about so much more than celebrating Christmas and all about the food, workshops, music and markets.
