A mum of three, engineer, scientist, educator, and all around dabbler, I'm far better at finding interesting things to do than I am at doing housework.
Update January 24th 2013
Please note showtime is now being listed as 9pm.
There will be a parade on main street Mornington at 5pm, so plan your arrival time accordingly

Celebrate Australia Day with a bang
Want Australia Day to go off with a bang, but flocking to the city with thousands of others doesn't appeal? There is an attractive alternative only a short drive away!

Each year, Mother's Beach in Mornington plays host to a spectacular fireworks display. With the show being launched over the bay, the beach provides a great spot to sit back and admire. But be warned, this show is popular too, so come early to get a waterfront spot. An alternative for those who arrive later in the evening is the clifftop above the beach, although those in this area will need to stand to see over the safety fences.

Why not come early and make a day of it? Mother's Beach, as the name suggests, is a very family friendly beach, with such a gentle slope that children need to make a real effort to get out of their depth. All the usual facilities are available close by, including a number of fish and chip shops for sustenance while waiting for the fireworks to begin.
