Food Scene
Beautiful setting overlooking picturesque dam. Sit under the majestic gum trees on their lawn and sample the local wines. The perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon. The casual, chic restaurant has a lovely menu for lunch or dinner. We love the fish tacos.

Magnificent food in a pretty setting. This is the more casual restaurant belonging to the "Ten Minutes by Tractor" group. They serve breakfast if you get there before 10am. After that the chefs are too focused on getting the lunch ready.

A great spot for breakfast or lunch, or to sample the locally made wines. The Merricks General Store is in the building that once was a general store (funny that). It has lovely Edwardian weatherboard charm and is thoughtfully and casually fitted out. A bigger, bustling restaurant.

One of the original finer restaurants in this part of the peninsula and still hard to beat. You can book and eat in the restaurant where the food is detailed and delicious, or opt for the outdoor pizza area. If you go in the daytime, wander through the vineyards afterwards and enjoy the sculptures dotted around the property.

This one is fairly close by, and popular. It offers a simple but delicious menu in a casual setting. The grapes on our farm our tended by the people at Foxeys Hangout and goes into their wine. Soon there will be a Pinot Noir made exclusively from our grapes under their label.

Point Leo Estate is a world class tourist attraction and a very exciting addition to the Mornington Peninsula. The restaurant building is breathtaking and opens out to simply spectacular views. Book for lunch or dinner and take a tour of the sculpture park before your meal. It's quite remarkable.

If you are new to Red Hill, you may not have heard of the famous Johnny Ripe apple pies. Nobody does pastry like these guys. They serve good coffee so you can drop in there for your caffeine fix, and come away with any number of delicious pastries including donuts, single apple pies, single lemon tarts, family pies, quiches - basically anything clever with pastry. Not to be missed. Take a few home and put them in your freezer so you can savour the flavours of Red Hill from home.

We will often walk to Many Little for breakfast. They do a great breakfast so it's worth the long walk. This place is brought to you by the people behind Polperro. The interiors are by celebrated Melbourne Interior Design firm Hecker Guthrie. It's become a bit of a fave of ours of late.

Essentials
If you want to eat in, and you want good food, look no further than Cellar & Pantry. They will have all your favourite foods from the best foodie places you know and love in Melbourne, all under one roof. This place is more than just your local general store. You can get ready-made lunch treats and good coffee here. Have it on the deck or take-away. Good snags for the BBQ from Sommerville Meats, giant slabs of Lindt chocolate (the milk hazelnut is my fave), local olive oils to take home, locally made lemon tarts for dessert, good cheese selection, etc, etc. I won't go on, but take my word for it.

This supermarket has all the foodie locals flocking to it in droves. If you want to eat in, and you want to eat well, head to the Dromana IGA. It's where I do all my supermarket shopping. It has the basics, but it also has the best produce you'd find in a big city, including an amazing cheese counter to rival Simon Johnson's (because they source their cheese from there I guess), hard to find spices from the Vital Ingredient and good quality fruit and veg. I"m sure you will be impressed and agree with me that it's the best supermarket you've been to.

I love this little local gem. Support the local growers and providores. Torello Farm offers locally grown fruit and veg, as well as meat from quality local butchers. You can pick up dinner on the way through, plus eggs, plus preserves.

Parks & Nature
You can walk from Cellar & Pantry to the Merricks General Store along this walking track. Be prepared to share it with horses, dogs and the occasional bicycle. It's a lovely shady walk that takes you alongside some pretty farm properties. From one end to the other is over 6kms, so walk as far as you want and then turn back. Not recommended after a lot of rain as it can be muddy, but a lovely spot for a morning walk.

The beaches on the Western Port side of the peninsula aren't fabulous - let's be honest. We're more about the rural splendour. But Point Leo has the best beaches on this side. The front beach offers some gentle waves on certain tides for the younger or beginner surfers. Sit near the Boat Club at higher tide and it's a lovely spot to swim. If you want some bigger waves, head to the back beach.

This is one of my favourite beaches in this part of the Mornington Peninsula. Fortunately for us it's the closest. It has distinctly granular sand and the whole of the south beach has a row of brightly coloured and varied old fashioned beach boxes - an iconic Australian and much photographed sight. There is a great fish and chip shop on Mt Martha beach so its the perfect spot to end a scorcher of a beach day with fish and chips in hand.

Shopping
I love the selection of homewares, baby wares, fashion and accessories sold in this shop. It's rare that I come away empty handed. Well worth a visit.

A little further to travel but if you love beach inspired homewares and furniture, you will love this shop. It has more of a Portsea vibe than a Red Hill vibe, as it's more beachy than country style. If you're on your way to or from that part of the peninsula though, it's worth dropping into on the way.

A women's clothing store that also sells the beautiful ranges of candles by Cire Trudon and heavenly soaps and body products from Santa Maria Novella. This little shop is hidden away in a group of stores worth visiting. You can tick off a few recommendations (have breakfast or a drink at Many Little, stop in to Red Hill House and go home with an Apple Pie when you visit this area in Red Hill South.)

Entertainment & Activities
You don't often get the chance to go to the Drive-In these days. This is just down the road. Better when there's no daylight savings and the movies start earlier.
