MORNINGTON SEAS

Mornington is a seaside town on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia, located 57 km south-east of Melbourne's central business district. It is in the local government area of the Shire of Mornington Peninsula. Mornington is known for its "village" atmosphere and its beautiful beaches. Mornington is a popular tourist destination with Melburnians who often make day trips to visit the area's bay beaches and wineries. The town centre runs into the foreshore area and local beach.

Mornington Pier was first built in the 1850's, providing a safe berth for steamships carrying holiday makers from Melbourne. It was was also a busy departure point for vessels carrying produce to the Melbourne markets before rail arrived in the early 1890s. Today the pier is a popular destination for a range of recreational activities including sightseeing, fishing and scuba diving.

  1. We live near et tired of seeing the joys each time we visit - especially with our dogs Bing and Sadie - so lucky to be able to go to the beach most days - weather permitting.
    Thanks so much, a sunny post - unlike outside here in UK today.
