When the last of the pavlova has been demolished and the Christmas ham is on its last legs (quite literally), some of us are relishing in the limbo between Christmas and new year not knowing what day of the week it is, how long the kids have been outside riding their bikes or what the hell you’re having for dinner.
For those of you already setting your sights on the new year, I’ve put together a list of the happenings on the Mornington Peninsula in January. It’s a great time to check out some local spots or for visitors to discover why we love to call the peninsula ‘home’.
I hope you discover something made, beautiful scenes or something to eat on the Mornington Peninsula in the new year.
