mount martha Suburb Profile & Review

Situated just south of Mornington and an hour from Melbourne, Mount Martha is a small town with a quiet atmosphere and some beautiful natural scenery. Residents spend lazy afternoons strolling Balcombe Estuary and boardwalk and picnicking at Ferrero Reserve. Sunshine Reserve, which follows Sunshine Creek from the Esplanade, teems with native animals such as possums, sugar gliders and koalas.

The Mount Martha Municipal Golf Course offers residents a place to relax and work on their swing. A local attraction is The Briars Park, a historic property that houses a divine French restaurant, Josephine's, as well as a vineyard and a wildlife reserve. The town's commercial centre can be found along Lochiel Avenue, parallel to the Esplanade. cafes here provide stunning views over Port Phillip Bay. Those worried about the lack of nightlife or retail stores need not worry, as Mornington has a large shopping centre and commercial district just ten minutes away. Mount Martha's modest collection of shops allows residents to enjoy a level of solitude, because it makes the town more of a residential area than a tourist destination.

Balcombe Grammar School, which was only established in 2007, is a prep to year 12 school with an aim to provide more affordable private education for Peninsula residents. Mount Martha is also home to two primary schools: Osborne Primary and Mount Martha Primary.
