FREE kids activities on the Mornington Peninsula

The Mornington Peninsula is just an hours drive from Melbourne city and hosts a range of amazing activities for all age groups. From mazes and wineries to strawberry picking and swimming it has something for everyone.

I have asked some of my favourite Mornington Peninsula Mums to share their favourite FREE activity for those under 5.

SeaWinds Gardens, Arthurs Seat.

Purves Road.

Make your way up the winding panorama of Arthurs Seat scenic road and you will find yourself in the enchanting Seawind Gardens. With a William Ricketts sculpture area, duck pond, rose garden and magnificent bay views, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Lazy Sunday afternoon? Take a stroll through the indigenous garden. After something a little more strenuous? Take on one of the walking tracks on this 34 hectare property and keep your eyes peeled for fairies and kangaroos!

Top tip: Visit at dusk and watch a breath taking sunset from one of the Peninsula’s best view points.

Little FREE Library.

Originating in the States, the Little FREE Library has developed a cult following on the Peninsula in recent years. Take a book, leave a book or enjoy a spontaneous storytelling on the footpath! These tiny libraries spark the imagination of children and adults alike. They take the traditional book exchange out into the sunshine and create magical moments for book loving community members.

For the locations head to Miss Morni Penni as she shares her finds on Instagram.

Mc Clelland Gallery and Sculpture Park.

We absolutely love visiting the McClelland Gallery & Sculpture Park with our little ones! This stunning artistic attraction, located in Langwarrin just off Peninsula Link is filled with 100 outdoor sculptures, a nature walk, landscaped gardens, a lake, a gorgeous cafe and a big open lawn for the kids to run wild while you sit and have a picnic.

The kids love looking at the interactive sculptures that make or play music, the large life like animal sculptures and the darkened shed which has little holes in the ceiling making it seem like the roof is made of stars. They also love chasing each other around the cleverly designed stone maze, it really is a magical place.

Open Tuesday to Sunday, you can find the McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park at 390 McClelland Drive, Langwarrin,

Martha Cove.

One of my favourite things to do is to take a walk along the boardwalk at Martha Cove. Starting at the Safety Beach dog beach, the boardwalk follows the harbour waterway along past the marina berths and finally ending up at the boat ramp. The kids can ride their bikes or scooters, check out all the lovely sailboats and you can reward yourself with a much needed coffee at the Martha Cove Café along the way.  Its pet friendly too, so a great activity to do for the whole family!

Pure Peninsula Honey.

We love visiting the Peninsula Honey Farm. During school holidays they have farm talks when you can experience some hands on learning. Outside of school times its also a great place to visit and learn about bees and hives. At the farm shop you can taste different types of honey, colour in pictures and even see a working hive with your own eyes! Outside there are picnic tables and a sandpit.
