Winter wonderfuls on the Mornington Peninsula (plus a few further afield)

Winter is here! I kind love winter because jumpers, fireplaces, doonas and hairy legs but I also kind hate it because no swimming, cold feet, dark and hairy legs. BUT, there are some truly excellent offerings on the Mornington Peninsula that I MAY even shave my legs for so get excited people as I bring you our top 5 picks.

  1. Boneo Maze; Winter Glow. boneo.jpgBoneo Maze is a Mornington Peninsula quiet achiever but I am telling you now, it runs some of the coolest family friendly events in the region. Always reasonably priced with a bit of old-fashioned charm, Boneo Maze’s festivals offer so much more than mazes and mini golf. Face painting, Neon Photo booth, fire show and movie tent, Winter Glow is set to be epic! Put June 10th in your diary. More info: WinterGlow at Boneo Maze

2. Winter Wine and Truffle Train-hosted by The 100 Mile Foodie

You guys, I am more excited about this event than I was about my own wedding. The 100 Mile Foodie is hosting a journey with the romantic charm of being on an old fashioned train but with a contemporary menu and wines from some of my favourites (Stumpy Gully, Crittenden Estate). I die. Jump on at Moorooduc and enjoy ethically sourced, locally produced food including treats from Red Hill Truffles. Saturday June 9th. Tickets: Winter Wine and Truffle Train

3.  Disney on Ice

Mini and I went to the launch of Disney on Ice a few weeks back and we had so much fun ice skating together. Shelley Craft was hosting and helped Mini get the hang of her ice skates while I did Insta stories because #instablogger4life. Anyway, we saw Shelly on TV recently and Mini was like “There’s my friend from ice skating!” Then we had to explain that they were not really friends and that Shelley was being paid to be there. KIDDING. We said “Yes darling, there’s your friend.” Then Insta-Husband said “I want to come next time.” And I said “Why do you only show an interest in my life when it involves an attractive celebrity?” Then he said “Why do you only shave your legs when you are going to meet Matty J?” Then we agreed to disagree and stay married for the sake of the children.

5. Peninsula Hot Springs: new experiences and facilities launchphs-ice-cave-800x553.jpgpenhotsprings.jpg

Peninsula Hot Springs is one of the most iconic Peninsula venues. And it is set to get even better this Winter with the launch of new experiences and facilities.
