Victoria’s most popular coastal picnic is back in 2020 and will take place on Saturday 28 March. The Peninsula Picnic returns with an amazing line-up of music acts headlined by Australian music royalty, and supported by some of the coolest bands in the country, renowned local restaurants and wineries, and producers who will come together to show off the culinary excellence and expertise of the region.
For the first time since 2017, Bernard Fanning returns to Victoria to lead the music line-up at The Peninsula Picnic, an exciting opportunity for Melbourne fans eager to see the songwriter perform live. The former Powderfinger frontman will treat music lovers and picnic goers to an extended set of his hits.
Fanning will be supported by four of Australia’s unique and extremely talented groups including newcomers Caravãna Sun and Hollow Coves, who are making the journey south to join local boys The Meltdown. ARIA nominated Mama Kin Spender, comprised of producer Tommy Spender and festival favourite Mama Kin are bringing their incredible choir collaboration show.
The wonderful mix of indie, folk rock and soulful tunes will be the perfect backdrop to the feasting that takes place, with an impressive list of returning restaurant favourites combined with some new haunts which will set tongues wagging and mouths drooling.
Off the back of opening their new cellar door this December, Ten Minutes by Tractor will make their debut at The Peninsula Picnic, showcasing some of their renowned drops. Rare Hare at Willow Creek Vineyard who makes some of the most elegant single-vineyard wines on the Mornington Peninsula will also join them.
Merricks General Wine Store will showcase their holistic offering of both their local drops and delicious French-inspired cuisine. More culinary delights from regional greats include DOC Mornington’s Italian flair, Tucks’ menu with an international influence, Casa de Playa and their award winning Paella, and Green Olive at Red Hill, whose entire menu is inspired by the seasonal produce grown on the farm.
More drops courtesy of the region include award-winning wines from Montalto, Polperro’s elegant wines reflective of their region and vintage, Prancing Horse’s combination of stellar local wines and top-notch Burgundy and Chablis, and for the non-wine drinkers, Gordon’s Pink Gin Bar and St Andrews Beach Brewery will provide drinks to keep them cool and refreshed all day long.
Sessions with top winemakers, cellar door tastings, market stalls from local artisans and kid’s activities, round out the impressive offering and celebration of local produce and Australian artists, all situated in the leafy surrounds of Mornington Racecourse.
