This is absolutely our favourite time of year and we always look forward to the array of events on throughout the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. Check out the latest top events in our area and be sure to bring the sunblock!
Portsea Polo 2017
The seventeenth annual Jeep Portsea Polo will descend on the stunning Mornington Peninsula on Saturday 14 January, 2017.
Hosted at the Point Nepean Quarantine Station, the Jeep Portsea Polo will feature three thrilling matches showcasing some of the world's best players from Australia, New Zealand and Argentina. Following a sell-out event in 2016, the 2017 event will continue to hold its standing as the must-attend event on the summer calendar for the the Australian social scene.
The stunning Mornington Peninsula has been home to the glamorous Jeep Portsea Polo for the last 16 years with a 6,000-strong crowd expected to make the annual trip to witness one of the fastest growing spectator sports in the world and 2017 will be no different, with tickets expected to sell-out fast. Get a group of friends or clients together and get tickets to the prestigious Polo Lounge or Portsea Polo marquees.

Peninsula Summer Musical Festival
This 10th year we present a cornucopia of musical offerings, from the (unjustly) little-known Scottish Songs of Beethoven to the renegade stylings of the Australian Guitar Trio, via joyous South African jive, the pinnacle of Romantic piano repertoire, and a swinging homage to the heyday of swing, stride and boogie.
We welcome back some familiar faces, such as Sally-Anne Russell, Acacia Quartet and David Greco, and invite you to discover the rising talents of Kevin Suherman and Ensemble 642.
I am especially proud of the 2017 Festival Academy, which will perform Handel's beloved pastoral opera, Acis & Galatea, in a suitably 'al fresco' setting.
An spectacular new outdoor cinema set in Point Nepean National park in Portsea, one of the most exclusive and picturesque locations in all of Australia.

Special twilight craft market with over 300 quality handmade, home-grown stalls featuring gourmet foods, seasonal produce, plants, art's and crafts, home wares, fashion, beauty and much more. Great atmosphere and a fantastic way to spend your Friday evening.
