Sundays at Cruden Farm | February 2021

Dame Elisabeth Murdoch left the property for people to enjoy and consists of wondrous manicured gardens and peaceful walking areas, set amongst interesting bushland and lakes. The sights and scents at Cruden Farm constantly alter throughout the seasons, and there are many plants and trees to be discovered.

Merricks General Wine Store

Back in the days before impersonal supermarkets and oversized shopping centres, the humble general store was a community hub, a place that served an important social, as well as supply, service. General stores were once prolific in towns across the Peninsula region, stocking everything from kerosene and toothpaste to fresh bread and milk, run by owners who knew many of the customers by name. In 1924, Merricks General Wine Store opened to serve a variety of needs of the local community.

Peninsula Hot Springs

In 1997, after bathing in the thermal springs of Japan, Charles and Richard Davidson had a vision to bring the hot springs experience to Australia. After eight years of planning and with plenty of perseverance and determination, they opened the first stage of this multi stage development in 2005.
