Welcome to Main Street Mornington !
It’s close enough to Melbourne for a day trip, but far enough to stay. And why wouldn’t you linger for a night or two, when the seaside village of Mornington has so many attractions so close by?
Think of fabulous shopping in more than 370 boutique shops on cosmopolitan Main Street, with a tantalising choice of around 60 restaurants and cafes. Think of fine wineries, galleries, historical walks, golf, fishing, sailing, horse racing long coastal strolls and drives, and a beautiful beach right at the end of Main Street.
Main Street Mornington – Mornington’s heart
The largest of the Mornington Peninsula’s seaside villages, Mornington has retained its relaxed and friendly air. Walk along broad tree-shaded pavements down one-kilometre Main Street, and there’s not a highrise in sight. But what you will see are intimate little courtyards, wide decks under shady verandahs and kerbside tables with a glimpse of the sparkling sea. How could you resist stopping for a coffee or glass of regional wine?
Main Street is simply packed with every imaginable kind of shop, from classy boutiques and imaginative gift shops, to equally fashionable homeware stores. You can fill your picnic basket or pantry from food stores specialising in regional and imported produce, and buy excellent regional wines. Indulge in day spas and beauty salons, then refresh yourself with a walk along the white sandy beach at Main Street’s end.
