The flora and fauna of the Mornington Peninsula is unique. Your garden can help protect and nurture the beautiful flora and fauna of the Mornington Peninsula.

Mornington Peninsula's free Gardens for Wildlife program is designed to encourage and support residents in creating a haven for local wildlife using local plants in their gardens.

The program is a partnership between the Shire and community members/groups that share the common goal of protecting and promoting our native flora and fauna.

Garden Guides

Gardens for Wildlife is supported by volunteer Garden Guides who visit your property and provide simple, practical advice on increasing habitat and natural food sources for wildlife in gardens.

Please register below your interest for a covid safe visit post lockdown.

  • A garden habitat assessment carried out by two local Garden Guides (Please note, this does not include hands-on gardening).
