Summer days filled with sunshine, picnics with friends and rockpool exploration are a few of the highlights for our Mornington Peninsula beach playgroup program.
Join us on the Mornington Peninsula at Mushroom Reef Marine Sanctuary in Flinders for a weekly beach playgroup where we connect, play, learn and explore on the beach and amongst the stunning rockpools. We provide a gentle rhythm to our facilitated playgroups with a focus on sensory play, storytelling, song, craft, learning, unstructured play and plenty of opportunities to build gross motor skills through climbing, balancing and movement
Mushroom Reef Marine Sanctuary is the perfect location to go rockpooling with kids, famous for its diversity of marine life, including sheltered rock pools, coves and a shallow reef on the ocean side as well as sandstone rock platforms extending from the shore. Learn more about the marine life with our set of rockpool Id cards HERE.
