Farrell’s Bookshop

To us, Farrell’s Bookshop is everything Jen Campbel describes and more.  Currently celebrating their 40th year of service in the heart of Mornington, Farrell’s was founded in 1978 by Roy and Liz Farrell, who set up the shop initially in Mornington’s Woolworth’s building. Today you can find it on the corner of Main and Barkly Street and has recently undergone a significant transformation - get in there, good will come of it, we promise.

A sanctuary for book lovers

Upon stepping through the doors of Antipodes Bookshop & Gallery you will feel the cosy calm wash over you. A sanctuary for book lovers, Antipodes’ purpose is to find and champion stories – those that enrich our lives, those that surprise and those that delight. There are other treasures to discover at Antipodes, too: beautiful Australian craft, art and jewellery and carefully curated exhibitions.

McClelland Gallery + Sculpture Park

There’s a wonderland in Langwarrin (just outside Frankston) that’s larger than life - with over 100 sculptures, 16 hectares of native bushland and landscaped gardens, art gallery and licensed café and to top it off… it’s free. Some of you will know it as McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery – a truly a world class experience where so much incredible art is blended with nature. We love it here because you’re encouraged to walk the grounds and as you do so you stumble across incredible works of art and nature.

We love Antipodes because of its serendipitous nature; it’s a place to experience wonderful encounters and a refuge from the outside world. As Picasso once said ‘some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun’ - it doesn’t matter which one you are, you’ll find the right spot at Antipodes.
