10 ways to win at winter

They say the winter weather is ‘character building’…

There’s no avoiding it, winter’s cold and yes there’s rain, but we know you’re still 100% keen to have some fun.

So let's help you with that.

Get snug at the Hop Shop

Ok, this is the place to grab some mates, grab a pint and settle in by the fireplace. They have a big range of craft brews, local wines and have teamed up with the Bang Bang crew, so you can smash the perfect bar bites to pair with your pint. Located in the centre of the city, their fire will keep you warm on the coldest of Frankston nights.

Take me there

Drink a Hot Cross Bun

Getting in the winter mood, the gang at Biersal Brewery in Seaford have created a Hot Mulled Stout. We’ve heard it’s like drinking a hot cross bun! If that doesn't tickle your fancy though, they have plenty of other beers you can sample. They even have their very own courtesy brewery bus. For groups of 4-7, you can get a FREE pick up AND drop off! They’ll take you anywhere in Seaford and the surrounding suburbs.   

Give me their details

The blue reservoir at the Frankston Nature Conservation Reserve

Discover the perfect winter SUP spot

While winter brings cooler weather that lures us to stay indoors, it can also bring some of the best days that nature has to offer. A clear blue sky, no wind, and if you’re keen on a little SUP, we have the perfect place for you; Frankston Nature Conservation Reserve. A short walk (400m) from the carpark and you’ll find a launch ramp beside the blue dam at the centre of the reserve. Canoes and Kayaks are also great here.

There’s even a bar if you’re craving a cocktail. Super fun, super insta snappy.
