Insider Tips
If you haven’t already got somewhere in mind, here are a few places your host recommends for a picnic:

Schnapper Point, Mornington

The large shady trees and outlook make this an obvious choice for a family picnic in Mornington. Conveniently located at the end of Main St, Schnapper Point makes for a short walk to scout out an ice-cream treat at the end of a great day. Facilities include playground, BBQs, tables, drinking water and toilets.

Sorrento Historic Park, Sorrento

If you are looking for breathtaking views over the Port Phillip coastline, grassy hills to roll down or lay your blanket on, then this is the place for you. Sorrento Park features a wooden adventure playground, BBQs, tables (shaded and unshaded) and toilets. Plus you have that view for your after-picnic stroll.

Coolart Homestead and Wetlands, Somers

Here you’ll find a unique mix of wetlands (home to around 3000 birds), a historical homestead and recreational areas making it a top picnic choice for people of all ages. With the statuesque 1895 homestead as your backdrop, the surrounding are edged with picturesque garden borders, plus there are free electric BBQ’s and picnic tables. You’ll also find free parking, toilets, and some great walking tracks.

Flinder Pier

The Flinders Pier is located at the point where Western Port meets Bass Strait. It has great views across Western Port to Phillip Island. The Flinders Pier is 250 metres (820 ft) long that juts out from the protected beach, and is sheltered from the waters of Bass Strait by West Head. This area is popular for sailing, fishing, and other watersports. The area is well known for the abundance of squid caught, especially during spring months. Numerous other species have been caught off this jetty, including: King George whiting, Australian Salmon, silver trevally, wrasse, leatherjackets, barracouta and short-finned pike. Nearby Bass Park offers barbeques, walking trails and a playground. Public toilets are available at the pier.

Plus some accommodation options if you want to stay and make a weekend of it:
