Visitors to our region need a variety of tools to explore the amazing things to do and places to see on the Mornington Peninsula.

Volunteers play a vital role in the Peninsula’s tourism services by providing information to around 25,000+ visitors each year.

Their passion and knowledge of the Peninsula, adds to visitors amazing experience to our beautiful region.
