"I've lived everywhere but since finding Mornington I'm not going anywhere"

Such a lovely town. Once you live here you don't even want to leave the peninsula. It has everything you need and more. Amazing cafes, great shops, beautiful beaches, picturesque walking tracks, friendly locals, great markets, lots of things for kids to do, the list goes on. We are so happy we found this little paradise on the outskirts of Melbourne.

"No wonder its a great place to live"

What more could you want. Probably the best long Main Street in Australia and abundance of cafes and eateries, More wineries than you can handle Decent priced shopping free parking the beach the harbour, the racecourse the list goes on and on and on If I was picky the train stops at Frankston so you have to drive at least there for the train. In minutes your in the country though as welll if you head east Finding a property, that is tough, as the world and his wife want to move there but the above are the reasons why.

"Gorgeous sea side suburb"

I love visiting Mornington. There is an abundance of cafes, restaurants, boutique shops and clothes and gift stores to explore. There is a buzz on the busy street as people dine out on the street and enjoy the sea breeze. The variations of food stores is exciting as you are able to try different cuisines and soak up the atmosphere.
There is a large lark at the end of the main street which the kids will love. If the weather is great, you can go paddle boards or snorkelling in the bay. The front beach is clean and safe. There is a great walk on the side of the hills which has a fantastic view of the peninsula. In recent years the newly built freeway/peninsula link, makes this suburb closer to the city.
Spend a day in Mornington and you will fall in love with the area and will be sure to return.

"Fantastic Coastal Town- With so many things to do"

Mornington is a fantastic coastal town filled with great coffee shops, restaurants, boutique shops and local Mornington Peninsula produce. It is also home to some of the best beaches particularly friendly for children and many beautiful Holiday Accomodation options. Mornington is home to many good essential stores such as Target, Bunnings, Coles, Safeway etc meaning you have everything at your disposal. A lovely clean and appealing Main Street there really is something for everyone.

"Still a small town with all the other benefits"

I have lived here for 15 years, it has changed somewhat over the years, for the better as far a I am concerned, wineries have popped up everywhere and is great for the tourists. The beaches are to die for and there is always something to do. When visitors are around there is a never ending list of places to go and see, especially the Mazes around the area, the kids just love it. I would never live anywhere else. Eating out is a hard choice due to the amount of restaurants and cafes here. Just love it.

"Beachside living but still feels urban and close to everything."

Recently moved in and love the area. Walk to beach, short drive to everywhere. Plenty to do, places to eat/drink, all kinds of services that you need just up the main street.

"A gem with everything!"

Mornington in Victoria is immortalised in the song by the Seekers 'Morning Town Ride' and used to be at the end of the rail line. It is now a modern and trendy place by the bay in Victoria. As part of the Mornington Peninsula it is surrounded by beaches and boasts over 60 wineries. There are outstanding places to dine such as Salix restaurant and Max's which are in two of the local wineries. Views from many places on the peninsula are breath taking and coffee shops and cafes abound throughout the region. When hosting interstate visitors we have endless places to show them and share our wonderful corner of the world. A drive through golf course which hugs the sea is one of many amazing places to visit or Arthur's Seat which surveys the bay from great heights. Having lived here for only seven years we cannot imagine anywhere more beautiful or interesting. How many areas have such a range of lifestyles including farms, beaches, wineries, bush and cafes/restaurants?

"Fantastic place to live, particularly beach side!"

Perfect mix of beach life, city convenience and country feel. Excellent, safe beaches particularly Mothers beach, Scout & Shire Hall beaches and Mills Beach is georgeous for walking and relaxing/watching the sunsets across the bay.
Elevated homes looking over the bay and Mills beach are sooo lucky!
Great main st and shopping, cafes galore, friendly locals. Cliff walking trails...We love it!
