Looking for things to do on the Peninsula with the kids these school holidays? Take a look at these super fun ideas to keep the kids (and you!) happy:
We always have so much fun picking strawberries here! Such a fun way to get out and explore in the sunshine with the added bonus of taking home a couple of punnets of delicious strawberries.
This is the perfect way to relax and wear the kids out. The kids must pick up on the vibe and always come away calmer after the experience.
This is the Peninsulas latest attraction and we just can’t get enough of it! There is so much for the kids to do – they’ll want to spend the whole day there.
One of my fav things to do is to take a walk along the boardwalk at Martha Cove. The kids can ride their bikes or scooters and there is a lovely cafe at the end to reward yourself.
This park is always popular and it’s easy to see why. From tree surfing to tube slides there is sure to be an activity to suit everyone.
My boys really enjoyed going cherry picking and were thrilled to catch their very own trout in the pond. Great for a first time fishing adventure and don’t forget to bring your fish and cherries home!
The peninsula has many beautiful wineries but some of them are more kid friendly than others . Check out my post on Kid friendly wineries HERE.
This gorgeous stretch of sand is perfect for kids. It has waist deep water for the first 50metres or so – just enough for the kids to play around in without the worry of it being too deep.
This gem makes for a great day out with the family. There are picnic tables if you want to bring you own and bbq facilities also.
We are lucky enough to have many great parks on the Peninsula. The Mornington park has been around for years but a recent refurb has seen some old favourites spruced up and he whole park re-invigorated with new equipment. We love grabbing some fish and chips and having a picnic here.
This maze is old favourite on the peninsula. Check out the review from fellow blogger Bron, from Smiths Holiday Road HERE
We see this every year and it just keeps getting better and better. My kids could spend hours staring at the sculptures not to mention all the other activities on offer.
Nothing gets my kids more excited than converting the back of our 4WD into a pillow paradise and heading to the drive in. Such a fun thing to do in the summer months and the onsite diner takes care of all your snack needs.
What’s a summer without Gelato? This new kid on the block is impressing young and old and quickly becoming a favourite of ours. You HAVE to try the Nutella hot chocolate – YUM!
What a terrific way to wear the little ones out and even have a bit of fun yourself! The gardens here are beautiful and everyone loves playing the giant games on the lawn. Check out the review from fellow blogger Kate, over at Meetoo Kids HERE
The gardens are beautiful in summer. You can pack a picnic or enjoy a delicious meal from the cafe. If it’s a nice day the kids can wade into the river to cool off.
