Travel with Teens

...and get them off their screens..that is the challenge!  Any parent will admit it is no easy task to lure our teens away from their screens, it's hard enough for us adults, but when you do it is so rewarding connecting with the young adults in our lives.  Below we have put together some recommendations for teen-friendly activities that all of the family will enjoy.  They are gone so soon! Make the most of this time x

Run free in the Enchanted Adventure Garden

Enchanted Adventure is an award-winning natural attraction nestled in the beautiful hinterland of Arthurs Seat on the Mornington Peninsula.

From their epic Tube Slides to our Tree Surfing courses, giant brainteaser puzzles, Canopy Walk, Sky Scramble and more, there is adventure for adults and kids alike! Lose yourself in the colours of themed gardens, marvel at the structures of hedge topiary and giant sculptures or get tangled in one of the mazes.


Gunnamatta Trail Rides

Horseriding along Gunnamatta Beach

Here is your chance to create a lifetime of memories with your family.

You can spend an hour or an entire day by taking part in a range of adventures with your kids, or split up and meet them at the end of the day to share those wonderful stories.

Some families do some of both – creating memories and lots of fun & laughter whilst they try a new adventure together but also find that little time apart to experience the joy of Horse Riding at the only place you’d want to be on the Mornington Peninsula, Gunnamatta Trail Rides


Watersports Galore!

Go snorkelling, hire a sea kayak or try stand up paddle boarding.  Check out great experiences with Bay Play and Peninsula Paddle Company.  There will be so much to laugh about around the firepit that evening and for years to come.


Catch the latest flick at the Dromana Drive-in

Catching a movie at a Drive-in cinema makes that cinema experience all the more memorable.  The Drive-in at Dromana shows all the latest new releases, plus they have an American diner serving made-to-order burgers.

Take a walk and explore the rock pools at Bushrangers Bay

How to get to Bushrangers Bay Rockpools. Park at Bushrangers Bay Parking Area or the Cape Schanck Lighthouse car park and follow the signs to Bushrangers Bay. It's roughly a 40 minute walk along an easy dirt path with some stairs along the way. You can find the pools along the rocky coastline to the left of the beach. Enjoy!
