Wattlebird Cottage

Named by the original owners grandson, Wattlebird cottage was named for the long billed yellow breasted birds that sip the nectar of the flowers in the lush gardens. You will still see them darting through the trees and sometimes spot them upside down in precarious positions trying to get that nectar!

MagBird Cottage

Named by the original owners grandson, Magbird cottage refers to the cheeky black and white Magpies that love to sit and warble their song on the verandah. Being rather young he called them Magbirds instead of Magpies and the name stuck! You will still see them today brashly strutting around the gardens, usually in pairs and loudly singing for all to hear).

Things To Do

As well as spending the day soaking up the sun at the beach, there are many tours of interest on the Mornington Peninsula. Most of the wineries are quite popular in Summer if you like winetasting or just enjoy the great ocean views offered by the local country side.

You could check out Arthurs' Seat or go exploring the National Parks however luncheon or dinner are also a specialty of the area, offering delicious snacks or 3 course dinners, fish & chips or inch thick steak. After lunch you could try your hand at a round of golf or maybe offering a local sailing race your assistance as "balaste" as this often works for newcomers to the sport.
