“Mock Red Hill, located in the Hinterland of the Mornington Peninsula, is a well-established Bio-Dynamic apple orchard and processing facility. The family-owned and operated orchard has been producing high quality, Bio-Dynamic (enhanced organic) fresh fruit, apple juice, apple ciders and apple cider vinegar for the local region and beyond for many years. They recently added sparkling pear juice to the range too, as they continue to look for new ways to delight the palate.
Their most recent addition is a unique sensory tasting experience of all their products set up in the original wooden cool store, built in 1945. After the tasting experience, customers will have the option to take the experience back home, with products available for purchase. Otherwise, kick back and relax with a cold cider, complimented by a platter of local produce, cheese and of course Mock Red Hill and Totally Pure Fruits’ very own dried and fresh produce”.

National Vietnam Veterans Museum is located in Phillip Island Tourist Road near Helicopter Flights. The National Vietnam Veterans Museum is the only Museum of its kind in Australia that covers a specific period in Australia’s history. The collection spans over 6000 artifacts and exists to permanently record Australia’s longest commitment to any war, a period of ten years (1962 – 1972). It presents the story of Australia’s involvement at a time of deep division among the Australian population over Conscription. The Museum is of great historical and cultural significance for Australians of all ages and also provides a meeting place for Veterans and their families.
An impressive Sound and Light show is one of the highlights of a tour through the museum and for refreshments, the cafe caters for light meals, morning and afternoon tea.
There are also some great wineries to visit for wine tasting on the way to Phillip Island. Enjoy exploring…
Please check our their website for more info - www.vietnamvetsmuseum.org
