Cliff jumping at Mount Martha Pillars
The Pillars at Mount Martha are beautiful and have become a not-so-secret swimming spot along the Mornington Peninsula. There’s no signs or parking area to suggest where it is from the road, but these days you can just do a quick online search to find out how to get there. The water is crystal clear so perfect if you’re in the mood for a dip. Even if you’re not a thrill seeker you can watch people jumping off the highest platforms into the ocean.
The Briars Park
If you prefer bushland to the beach, then head to The Briars Park while you’re in Mount Martha. It’s an especially great area for checking out birdlife and other wildlife. Most of the walks are between 1-2 hours and there are free electric BBQs near the visitor centre with picnic tables available to use.
