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: 

SunnyRidge Strawberry farm 

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. 

Peninsula Hot springs 

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. 

The Big Goose  

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. 

Martha cove 

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. 

Enchanted Adventure Garden 

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. 

Ripe n Ready Cherry Farm 

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! 

Winery lunch 

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

Safety beach 

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. 

Moonlit sanctuary 

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. 

Mornington Park 

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. 

Ashcombe Maze and Lavender farm 

This maze is old favourite on the peninsula. Check out the review from fellow blogger Bron, from Smiths Holiday Road HERE 

Sand Sculpting Frankston Waterfront 

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. 

Dromana Drive In 

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.

Vespas Gelateria 

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! 

 Boneo Maze and Mini Golf 

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 

Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne 

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.
