Mornington Peninsula Shire is developing a long-term plan for The Briars, the community’s much-loved Mount Martha property.

The Briars Master Plan will look 10-15 years into the future and articulate how the natural, cultural and heritage values of The Briars and the Mornington Peninsula will be celebrated.

The Briars is a beautiful 230ha property in Mount Martha. Visitors can enjoy walks and wildlife spotting through the wildlife sanctuary or become immersed in history with a tour through the heritage homestead. The Shire Nursery offers a range of beautiful native and indigenous plants for home gardens while the Eco-Living Display Centre provides visitors with all the tips and tricks needed to make a home resource efficient. These are just some of the exciting visitor experiences offered at the Briars. 

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor Bryan Payne said “we want The Briars to become a part of your backyard – somewhere you visit, love and return to”.

“There’s still time to provide input into the development of the master plan - it’s important for us to hear your ideas, no matter how small or how grand, for what you would like the site to become and how you’d like to use it.
