What’s on the Mornington Peninsula – October

 In Arthurs Seat, Barefoot News, Portsea

Spring is that time of the year where we can leave our winter blues behind and get ready for another great and hopefully hot summer. Here are some of the activities on the Mornington Peninsula this month that we though we’d share with you.

Searoad Ferries 30th year anniversary

Searoad Ferries 30 year anniversary

The guys at Searoad Ferries have been crossing the bay for 30 years and are going to celebrate it big time this Saturday 21 Oct at Queenscliff terminal.

If you’re over 30 you probably remeber what it was like to go over to the other side of the bay before the ferry came about… a long 3 hour drive if you wanted to go to the surf coast! How annoyig is that! What you may not know is that what is now part of the Portsea, Sorrento and Queenscliff’s landscape and that we now take for granted, took years of planning and a lot of persistance from local folks at both ends of the bay. Luckily though, after many efforts and years (and permits), we finally got the ferry to connect both Peninsulas (yay!).

I guess it’s no wonder that Searoads Ferries want to make their 30 year anniversary one to remember. They will be hosting a party on the car deck which will have live music, food trucks, pop up bars and heaps of great entertainment.

The party will be used as a warm up for this year’s Queenscliff Music Festival with Bob Evans, GL, Creek and DJ Vince Peach providing the entertainment.
