Cameron Robbins Open Studio at Police Point

In recent years the Gatekeepers Cottage has been 'home' to over 40 artists in residence at Police Point Shire Park, Portsea. Built in the late 1800's the cottage was originally used by policemen overseeing quarantine operations in the area.  Cameron Robbins is an artist in residence during March/April 2019 and will open the studio doors for visitors.

Rose Valley in Red Hill

The home offers an expansive outlook from the large Easterly entertaining area featuring a solar heated pool. This imposing home offers a range of living options with living, dining and lounge areas complimented by an open fire and slow combustion heater. At the heart of the living area is a shaker kitchen.

Sculpture at Montalto

Sculpture is an integral part of life at Montalto and a highlight of any visit to the estate. Our Sculpture Trail winds its way through the property and our beautiful natural gallery provides diverse settings for our pieces. You might find monumental works sited in open spaces through to more intimate pieces amongst the wetlands and vines.

Red Hill Cheese

Part of the allure of visiting Red Hill Cheese is that it’s down a quiet country road, surrounded by a majestic natural environment in the forest. From the tasting room and deck, you can discover the different styles from the Cheese-maker’s selection of premium cheeses. From our perspective this is a tasting experience where visitors often return to discover new seasonal, artisan cheeses.

Flinders Shed

Flinders in the past 12 months has undergone a renaissance with the addition of galleries, restaurants, cafes and bars but a standout over the years has been Flinders Shed. Head here if you wish to check out this cool shop that stocks contemporary and avant-garde brands. Inconspicuously tucked between two art galleries, this family-owned boutique - run by mother and daughter team Chris and Nat Lawrance, Flinders Shed has created something of a cult following as the boutique is known for showcasing independent designers and is widely considered a haven for those seeking hard-to-find labels.

Alatonero

A long-term love affair with Santorini, and a passion for Greek food, has brought a new culinary vibe to the Mornington Peninsula. Across the road from the McCrae lighthouse (at what was The Pavilion), Alatonero is giving diners the opportunity to enjoy well known and much loved Greek delicacies. With an impressive resume in the food world, and with energy and drive to burn, Jacqui Poulier found the perfect location for her new venture, where she has brought to life her love of food, cooking, people and stories. The restaurant is light, bright, open and airy with a fresh sea breeze that drifts through the open plan dining area.
