Mornington Mills & Mothers Beach

Edit Spot

Not the best place to surf but if you have no other choice but to surf in the bay it still good fun.

Is a good spot to surf when the ocean beaches are to big or blown out. But watch out for the sharp rocks on your way in at Mothers

Additional Info:
Needs a strong norh to north west wind to work. Can be good on the right day make sure you bring a bigger board like a mal, mini mal, funboard etc. It will usually by stormy when you go.


Turn right off Nepean Highway at the traffic lights into Main street Mornington. Head to the end of the street and go to the Harbour. You will see the wave breaking on the beach there. Only if it is really windy.
