With Moonraker you have an incredible 3-hour snorkel adventure with local Bottlenose Dolphins, you swim alongside cheeky Australian Fur Seals (which are like dogs!) and you get to explore underwater marine parks filled with colourful fish. Or if getting in the water up close and personal is not your thing, you can embark on a private luxury adventure aboard the Moonraker, where you can see the very best of Port Phillip Bay and wild dolphins swimming alongside, just meters away from the Australian Fur Seals. If you love dolphins, like I do, then I can’t recommend this adventure enough.

Eagle Ridge is a Mornington Peninsula favourite, located in The Cups region and known for its heavily featured layout and superb hospitality. A resort-style championship course rewards accuracy and caters for all handicaps, with waterfalls, ornamental lakes, cart paths and bunkering set in an ideal golf landscape. A major enhancement project over the 2007/08 summer saw all fairways replaced with Santa Ana couch, tee area landscaping and levelling, and re-design work. After completion of works in one summer, Eagle Ridge has reopened with substantially reduced water needs, adding to its green credentials. With a golf shop, café, spike bar and lounge and stunning Clubhouse.
