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.
