By Always Live

If you’re looking for a fresh sea breeze, innovative local cuisine, gourmet wineries and the option of escaping to the hinterland or the beach, you can’t go past the Mornington Peninsula. Whether you’re looking for a weekend getaway or planning a trip with the family, there’s plenty to do, see and explore.

With Music In The Park, presented by ALWAYS LIVE and Tones and I taking over Mornington on Dec 9, there's better reason do you need to pack the car, hit the road and escape to the Peninsula for an incredible weekend away. Enjoy performances from The Cat Empire, The Veronicas, Budjerah and more at Music In The Park, get a taste of the local food and drink offerings and make the most of the endless options to relax and treat yourself.

We’ve picked a couple of spots to add to your hit-list for your Mornington escape.

St Andrews Beach Brewery sits on 92-acres, formerly home to a racehorse training facility, and following it’s renovation, it’s become a go-to spot on the Peninsula for a unique brewery experience. Converted stables now serve as sitting areas, and a former Melbourne Cup winner's box is open for visitors to relax in while enjoying a beer, seltzer, cider and local wine, as well as tasting the extensive menu of share plates, salads, pizzas and burgers.

If you’re planning a getaway for the entire family, you can’t go past Music In The Park, presented by ALWAYS LIVE and Tones and I. With performances from The Cat Empire, The Veronicas, Budjerah, Kaiit, Pierce Brothers and more, this family-friendly community festival is shaking up the Mornington Peninsula on Dec 9.

No better way to cap off a long day of exploring the Peninsula than by retreating to one of the many hotels and getaways sprinkled along the coast. Sorrento’s InterContinental is one of the most popular stays in the region bringing a bit of coastal glamour to the region. Vineyards, restaurants and plenty of stunning beaches are just a walk away from the hotel, which has been an icon of the Mornington Peninsula since 1875.

Whatever type of getaway you're looking for, the Mornington Peninsula has something on offer for everyone. Get outside with the family for a beautiful hike with an ocean view, head to a show at one of the many live music venues sprinkled along the coast, like Gods Bandroom, Sound Bar and The Royal Hotel, or lose yourself in a weekend of rest and relaxation.

Music In The Park is hitting Mornington Park on Dec 9 for the perfect outing for the entire family. Grab your tickets HERE.
