The Peninsula Picnic is a star-studded, gourmet day out with plenty to see, do and eat for adults and kids alike. A cross between a luxe farmers' market and a low-key music festival, the Peninsula Picnic is a stylish day out with country vibes.

The second year of Mornington's biggest foodie event promises to be even bigger than last year, with live performances by Aussie musicians including Missy Higgins, Kim Churchill, Darren Middleton (of Powderfinger fame) and more.
Bring your own picnic blanket to the Mornington Racecourse location, and feast yourself on delightful gourmet fare and local wine from top Peninsula restaurants and vineyards. Eateries attending the picnic include Montalto, a restaurant that grows much of its own produce; Middle Eastern restaurant Dee's Kitchen, Italian gourmet pizzeria D.O.C and many more.
