Winery
“Stunning winery and restaurant with an outdoor sculpture park. Admission is $10 but grab a glass of wine and take it with you on your walk. Spectacular views! The restaurant cocktails and food is delicious, more of a special occasion venue but they also have a casual menu in the wine tasting area. If going for dinner or lunch please book! ”

“GLASS BLOWING IS AN AGE OLD ART… …a craft whose traditions go back thousands of years, the techniques and tools that remain largely unchanged can be witnessed live at the studio. See the blowing room and experience the searing heat of the furnaces from the security and comfort of a light filled viewing mezzanine, where you can observe resident glass artists working with molten hot glass. A truly unique experience to witness the ancient techniques used to work hot glass and shape it with tools, adding colour, blowing air and harnessing gravity to create beautiful art glass forms. The shop with all the beautiful glass pieces are on display, and ready to be purchased. This is one of my favourite places !!”

“In the heart of Sorrento, Nepean Historical Society's museum and the nearby original Limeburner's Cottage will take you back to the beginnings of Sorrento. Through images and artefacts, the museum tells many fascinating stories. Learn about the first European settlement on Port Phillip in 1803 by Lieutenant Colonel David Collins arriving on the Calcutta bringing convicts and their families. Learn fascinating stories of the Boon Wurrung people and convict, William Buckley, who escaped from the settlement and lived with the indigenous people for 33 years. Watch video of ferries in the 1880s bringing thousands of tourists from Melbourne and the steam trams running up the main street to the ocean beach. See artifacts from many ships wrecked at the treacherous Heads. Examine up close a special figurehead from one of the wrecks.”

“The Mornington Railway runs on the Mornington Branch line, recreating the original Victorian Railways branch line operation. Trains run on the first three Sundays of every month, and some holidays, from Moorooduc to Mornington and back. On most days, steam locomotives haul lovingly restored passenger carriages. On other days, trains are hauled by heritage diesel electric locomotives. This is a very enjoyable and interesting day out! ”

“Noel's Gallery is reinvented gallery space and cafe. The lightened interior and the spaces are full of paintings and jewelry; many from local artists. The paintings and giftware are a treat. Added to that, the deck is still one of the more sublime experiences in Red Hill; lovely relaxing views and the enjoyment of a snack and refreshments.”
