NMPT with a strong membership including a variety of retailers, accommodation providers (B&B’s/Hotels/Motels), wineries, galleries arts & antiques, parks and gardens, tour operators, marketing, and diverse range of dining & recreational facilities, responsible for producing the ‘Mornington Main Street Food, Wine & Performing Arts Festival’ annually.

NMPT have been bringing the ‘Mornington Main Street Food, Wine and Performing Arts Festival’ to the community for over 10 years, held annually on the 3rd Sunday in October and attracting around 20,000 visitors and community members. This iconic event promotes the Northern Peninsula Region and showcases the produce of the Mornington Peninsula, provides high quality and innovative performing arts programs and generates cultural and economic benefits for the community.

NMPT members are fortunate enough to be custodians of the Old Court House (2 Main Street, Mornington). The last court of sessions was held in this beautiful building in 1989. After falling into disrepair a battle was waged and won by the Friends of the Courthouse and in the year 2000 the old building came under the management and care of NMPT, allowing a cultural asset of the Mornington Peninsula to be preserved for all.

The Court House provides the association the luxury of being able to provide a Tourism Information Centre specifically for the Northern area, staffed by local volunteers & members of NMPT who are familiar and passionate about what is on offer in this area of the Peninsula.


NMPT is represented by two delegates at the Mornington Peninsula Tourism Board which meets once a month. This allows our members to have an involvement and a say on how Tourism on the Peninsula is developed.

Networking opportunities are held bi-monthly with members being given the opportunity to showcase their individual business to like minded tourism operators by hosting a ‘Networking Evening’.

A more relaxed form of networking, with two events held annually: ‘Christmas in July’ and ‘The Break Up’ held in December. Events such as these allows our members the opportunity to invite friends and business associates Again members are given the opportunity to showcase their business by hosting one of these events.

A number of various promotions have been undertaken over the years, ranging from manning information stands at the RACV Great Australian Rally, and at Federations Square, to working together with MPT in erecting the Information Display outside Mornington Shire Information Centre.
Most recently the association has produced and distributed ‘Tear Off Maps’ of the Northern Region, and its own NMPT email address and web site with links to members own web sites.

The northern region has been a popular tourist destination for generations, historical sites of the region, natural deep water harbour, sheltered sandy beaches and a variety of water activities, continue to be enjoyed by day trippers and holiday makers alike. The cosmopolitan style strip shopping of Main Street Mornington, the friendly atmosphere and diversity of speciality boutiques of both Mt Eliza and Mt Martha villages are all part of the reasons why many choose to visit over and over again and some never leave.
