Swimming with dolphins and seals for kids:
Children learn best through experience, so to swim amongst the Dolphins and Seals of Port Phillip Bay is one of the great experiences of life. To be in their natural environment, watch and hear them. These seals and dolphins are just off the coast not far from Melbourne – so close yet another world.
For the first time in Victoria it is possible to bathe in the naturally healing waters of mineral rich thermal pools. Like the historic and famous spa centres of Europe, Asia, the Americas and New Zealand, the natural hot springs on the Mornington Peninsula bring the blissful and healthy pleasure of “taking the waters” to the people.
Ride along a bush track to a beautiful rugged, sandy beach. Feel the sea spray on your face as you canter along the edge of the water, this is an absolutely exhilarating experience and one you will never forget. There are 2 companies we recommend for horse riding.
Mornington Peninsula National Park:
The Mornington Peninsula National Park runs from Point Nepean all along the ocean coast to Cape Schanck. Back roads, sometimes dusty, lead to various thundering surf beaches along this great stretch of coast where the endless pounding waves continue to shape the land into evermore intricate patterns. Hear Nature’s might is at its exhilarating best. Salt spray in your nostrils. Walking tracks through dunes and along crests provide views and access to the shoreline.
Green Bush is within the Mornington Peninsula National Park where not only do you find the largest local populations of Eastern Grey Kangaroos, but at 500 hectares it is also the biggest remnant of the Peninsula’s native vegetation.
Rising above the Mornington Peninsula, Arthur’s Seat is the most familiar of all Port Phillip Bay landscape features. It’s 314 m summit, reached by road, chairlift or foot, gives spectacular views of the bay and Port Phillip Heads. On a clear day the view extends as far as the city skyline, the You Yangs and Mount Macedon.
