Focus on Mornington Beaches, wineries, shopping, arts and antiques are all at your fingertips in a township that dates back to 1856, where original historical buildings stand proudly among modern architecture.

MORNINGTON FACTS Mornington is a seaside town on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia, located 57 km south-east of Melbourne’s central business district.

An earthquake measuring 4.5 on the Richter scale struck the town on 2 September 1932 associated with the nearby Selwyn Fault. No injuries or major damage was reported.

The Mornington Pier was built in 1857, and continues to be extended and improved.

Mornington’s original post office, built in 1863 at the corner of Main Street and The Esplanade, now operates as a museum displaying old telecommunications equipment and items relating to local history. It is the site of the Mornington and District Historical Society. On the other side of Main Street is the old court house (built in 1860) and the former police station lock-up (1862).

Mornington has a long history dating back to 1802 when explorer Matthew Flinders landed at Schnapper Point. These days, Schnapper Point provides a boat-launching ramp, jetty, yacht club, restaurant and scenic walks providing scenic views along the coast.

/MainStreetMornington


Fossil beach is a significant fossil site with evidence of Australia’s sea life from 10 to 15 million years ago. The fossils were discovered in 1854 in the limestone cliffs. Most of the fossils have now been removed. Access is via the track from the cliff path near Bentons Road (near the picnic area).

The first cruise ship visited Mornington township on February 24, 2015, after P&O added the Mornington Peninsula to its itinerary. The Pacific Pearl with 1800 residents on board docked early on the Tuesday morning, part of a new itinerary for P&O Cruises.

Mornington Central Shopping Centre is built on the site of the former Mornington railway station.

Mornington has a number of beaches, some of which are located at the base of rocky cliffs which dominate part of the coastline in this area. Along the eastern side of Schnapper Point is the sheltered Mothers Beach and Scout Beach, while Shire Hall Beach and Mills Beach are located further east along the coast. Around a kilometre south of Schnapper Point is Fishermans Beach which ends at the scenic rocky outcrop of Linley Point where there are boat ramps and scenic viewing spots along the coast.

The Mornington Rose Gardens has over 4000 roses planted in 86 beds and is surrounded by a border of native Australian trees and shrubs. The concept for the Mornington Rose Gardens was the brainchild of a local businessman Don Gordon who was inspired by the rose garden in Benalla that was situated next to the art gallery.

Mornington has an area of

Mornington Rose Garden Making a Dream a Reality THE Mornington Rose Gardens has over 4000 roses planted in 86 beds and is surrounded by a border of native Australian trees and shrubs. The concept for the Mornington Rose Gardens was the brainchild of a local businessman Don Gordon who was inspired by the rose garden in Benalla that was situated next to the art gallery. The land was allocated for this purpose by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council after much lobbying by Don. The first sod was turned by

mainstreetmornington.com.au

/MainStreetMornington

Councillor Anne Shaw on a freezing day in June 2004. The rose garden was built by volunteers during one of the longest droughts in Australia and has been hooked up to recycled water. The Mornington Rose Gardens was officially opened by the well-known gardener and radio and television personality Jane Edmanson in November 2008. Don Gordon passed away in 2011, but not before seeing his rose garden dream become a reality.

From Hyde Park to Billy Goat Flat The tale of Mrs. Hicks THE archives of the Old Post Office Museum in Mornington contain memories recorded by earlier residents of the town, such as the late Doreen Townsend. In particular, she recalled Mrs. Anne Hicks who lived at Billy Goat Flat. Mrs Hicks kept a coffin in her home in case of an emergency; some said she slept in it while others believed that it was used to store her bread. Visitors who wanted to inspect the coffin could do so for a small consideration. When Mrs Hicks departed Billy Goat Flat and where she went to is uncertain. Much more is known of her earlier reputation.

The Apple Seller of Hyde Park In the 1840’s a small shanty stood at the east end of the Serpentine River in Hyde Park, London, and from there a woman named Anne Hicks sold apples and gingerbread. Originally she made use of an old conduit; when this disappeared, she plied her trade from an open stall with an awning. But Mrs. Hicks knew more than her apples; she was a born letter writer. First, she succeeded in her plea to the Department of Woods and Forests that she be

16

mainstreetmornington.com.au

/MainStreetMornington

permitted to erect a small lock-up in which she could safely leave her goods. Then she was allowed to erect a small brick enclosure which turned out to be four walls which contained windows and a door. Mrs Hicks was then granted permission to erect a chimney followed by a fence. The irrepressible apple seller was now a householder in Hyde Park! Just as things were going well, Mrs Hicks suffered a setback: all obstructions in Hyde Park were to be removed to make way for the Great Exhibition and the apple seller was served with a notice to quit.

The Great Exhibition Sometimes referred to as the Crystal Palace Exhibition, this was held in Hyde Park from 1 May, 1851. It was the first in a series of World’s Fair Exhibitions of culture and industry that became popular in the nineteenth century The patron of the much-anticipated Great Exhibition was Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria. While it provided a platform for countries across the world to display their achievements, its prime motive was to /MainStreetMornington


make sure that all appreciated Great Britain’s role as industrial leader. Exhibits included the Koh-i-Noor diamond, an early eighth century Tara brooch, a precursor to the fax machine, a single-cast iron frame for a piano( the first in Europe),and visitors could watch the entire process of cotton manufacturing from spinning to finished cloth. George Jennings designed the first public conveniences for the resting rooms at the Exhibition; the charge was a penny.

before moving to Schnapper Point where her son was living. But Mrs. Hicks never gave up her fight for her wrongs to be righted and the imminent arrival of H.R.H. Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, in Australia set her off again. In November, 1867 a letter to the editor of The Age informed the readers of the injustices in her life, and a request for compensation was waiting for Prince Alfred on his arrival. She received the following response:

A yacht race held in conjunction with the Exhibition was to lead to the regular America’s Cup contests. Six million people visited the Great Exhibition with the average daily attendance being 42,831. The event made enough profit to found the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Science Museum, and the Natural History Museum. There was also sufficient to set up an educational fund to provide grants and scholarships for industrial research; it continues to this day.

To: Mrs. Anne Hicks, Old Hut, Beach, Schnapper Point, Mornington, formerly of The Cottage, Serpentine River, Hyde Park, London. Toorak, 3 January, 1868.

Mrs. Hicks v. City Hall Not one to surrender without a fight, Mrs. Hicks refused to vacate her shanty. Arrested in the park for selling apples outside the Crystal Palace, she was released on the promise that she would desist. Her next step was to write to The Times appealing for help and claiming her cottage was granted by royal favour to her grandfather after he saved the future King Edward VII from a watery grave when his horse bolted into the river.

I am directed to inform you that the calls upon the bounty of H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh are so great and numerous that H.R.H. is unable to comply with your request.

Mrs. Hicks placed placards on trees in Hyde Park and her many supporters agitated to such an extent that the matter was brought before parliament where it was dismissed. The claim for Royal favour was laughed off and her shack was declared an impermissible encroachment. It was only then that the apple seller left Hyde Park.

Your obedient servant, Elliot B. Yorke.

Australia Bound While Mrs. Hicks’ letters to The Times did not achieve their immediate objective, they led to the establishment of a public fund which would enable her to travel to Australia to join her son. These monies were supplemented by her doubtful claim that she had written “The Cake Sellers Story” which was published by Charles Dickens. Once in Australia Mrs. Hicks lived for eleven years on the Jim Crow diggings near Bendigo; she claimed she was “stuck up” three times and lost her house twice

The Royal Hotel Waterfront dining and accommodation

MORNINGTON’S Royal Hotel is not just a local architectural icon. It’s the premier place for fine food and wine or a night or two in their quaint upstairs rooms, replete with private balconies and bay views sure to satisfy any holidaymaker with an eye for history. Philippa and her family took over the business late in 2012, having been “born and bred” in the world of hospitality. “My parents started Walter’s Wine Bar, which was at Southgate for 21 years, and prior to that had Walter and Maria’s Restaurant for 18 years… it’s in the blood,” she explains. With a focus on the food and beverages, the Royal provides a refreshing change of scenery from the more traditional pokies pub, with open fireplaces, a cosy tavern and outdoor area beset by sea breeze. “Our major drawcard is the sensational location, with beautiful beer gardens that overlook Port Philip Bay.” Add to that the fact that the Royal is open 365 days of the year, including for Christmas lunch and you’ve got a winning formula. But if you’re talking about year-round dining says Phillipa,

22

/MainStreetMornington

“we come to the market on a different level. We call ourselves a gastropub… basically a top-notch offering using great quality produce.” “Combined with vintage open fireplaces, the standard of dining at the Royal Hotel is high. We’ve got two fireplaces in the restaurant area and one rather large one in the tavern. Over winter they become very popular attractions!” It pairs perfectly with their waterfront accommodation. “Our boutique hotel rooms are all beautifully renovated and restored to reflect the age and beauty of the Victorianstyle building.”, she said. It’s not something you’ll find anywhere else on the Mornington Peninsula, and the Royal’s proximity to Main Street, the beaches and the newly-restored pier precinct make it an ideal choice for both locals and tourists, for lunch, dinner, a place to stay or even just a cold drink on a hot day The Royal Hotel is at 770 The Esplanade, Mornington Phone 03 5975 8555 www.theroyal.com.au /MainStreetMornington

Brass Razu Come in for a drink or two “I say sir, we disembarked one morning in a place we would come to know as Mornington. I found this coin on the shores of this new land. I had no belongings, lost at sea, you see. ‘Twas the only thing I had, nothing but this Brass Razoo” – Admiral Arkle 1796. To this day, the famous coin is framed in Brass Razu’s fireplace room. We’re not entirely sure the story is true, but this wine bar was the first of its kind on the Mornington Peninsula. Ten years later and it’s still the place to go for a wine and cheeseboard. What makes Brass a little quirky is the different rooms it offers. The Main Bar twinkles with chandeliers and great paintings from yesteryear. The room entertains fabulous themed events like Paris Night, Brass-O-Ween (their annual All Hallow’s Eve event) and even a Disco Dance Night. The next room has a cozy fireplace with shelves filled with grandma’s knick- knacks, miniature portraits and even a model of the ship Admiral Arkle once set sail in hundreds of years ago, (again this may or may not be true). The last room is called the Velvet Room. Imagine Baroque lounges and velvet curtains covering the walls. This long boudoir-style area hosts intimate functions, from 21sts, to 60ths. According to Admiral Arkle’s journal it was once an Opium Den for the officers of noble birth. A little secret courtyard also welcomes those who wish to enjoy the warm weather, with nothing but the sound of Edith Piaf playing in the background. Fairy lights turn on as the sky turns dark. It’s certainly a romantic spot. Live music occurs every Friday night from Celtic Folk to Acoustic Rock; toe- tapping, head-rocking music; a perfect match to one of the 24 wines by the glass. They also have 350 wines by the bottle which awarded us a ‘2 Wine Glass Rating’ by the Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards 2017. But if wine isn’t for you, you can enjoy a wondrous, quirky cocktail instead. From the classic Negroni, to the flamboyant Nutella Bomb which has a rim of sprinkles and a token ‘cherry on top’.

Brass Razu isn’t a restaurant but it does serve a delicious tapas menu all day long, from 12pm until midnight on weekends. This means you can enjoy some great grub whenever you’re hungry, because who doesn’t crave a midnight pizza with a side of Belgian Waffles? Anyone? Anyone?!! A vast selection of spirits and boutique beers will keep any drinker satisfied but it’s the atmosphere that will keep you coming back for more. Perhaps it was the Disney Night that had you experiencing your childhood all over again, or the Motown covers of Jordain live on a Friday night that had you up and dancing with the girls. Or the first date you had on a rainy Thursday night with the love of your life? Because that’s happened too. Admiral Arkle may or may not have inspired this eclectic wine bar. But one thing is for certain. It wouldn’t be Main Street without it.

From the consultation, which can last anywhere from 20 minutes up to several hours, through to creation and delivery, the process generally takes a few weeks. For a piece that’s guaranteed to be completely individual in a world where nothing is truly original any longer, Elayne and the crew are worth the patience. Like the relationship it signifies, this jewellery is a labour of love, and there’s nobody better at this than the Studio41 team.

Elayne explains that “a lot of people supply us with their own stones or gold, which we can melt and

purchase process. “So first things first; are you going to go it alone or involve your partner? Some brides very much want to be involved whereas others may be looking to be swept off their feet with a surprise proposal. There is no right or wrong way… just a lot of hints usually. If you choose to buy the ring together, then you will undoubtedly find various aspects much easier such as getting the ring size right. But what about budget? Sometimes there is mutual understanding of fiscal restraints while other times there can be a very broad difference in expectations. It might be best set that budget after you have been to a few stores first.” Anthony says if you choose to buy the ring as a surprise it is important to concentrate on the diamond and less on the ring design unless you really know what she likes.

Mark Gray

A wild ride DO a search for landscape photography on Google and the number one result will be Mornington’s very own Mark Gray. He’s a professional landscape photographer with 118 various awards from all over the planet – little wonder then that his business is growing, with his expanded gallery at 65 Main Street. “I’ve only ever shot landscapes. When they start their landscape photography journey, a lot of people go down the path of doing weddings and portraiture to make ends meet. I was able to run a web design business on the side while I was building my photography business, so I ran the two consecutively until I had enough income to make the change.” You’ll now find his collections in

homes and galleries in 29 different countries, sold both online and from his retail outlet. He hasn’t looked back. Earlier last year, the second print of his ‘Dawn Sentinel’ photograph sold to a Perth-based collector for $30,000, with the third and final print selling for $60,000. It’s a rare piece, taken at dawn in Cape Schanck overlooking the Bass Strait, and is a stellar example of why he’s in such high demand. “The Mornington store has done so well we decided to expand; taking over the old Trigger Bros. space and it’s been great.” Where many people pursue their passion, interest or hobby for a lifetime or more with little success, Mark actually started out in web design before transitioning to photography.

The gallery embraces traditional and contemporary art in all its forms, ensuring there’s something for everyone. National touring exhibitions and MPRGcurated exhibitions offer a rich cultural experience for the local community as well as visitors to the region – many travelling the easy distance from Melbourne to enjoy the Mornington Peninsula’s beautiful coastal scenery and hinterland.

MPRG-curated exhibitions often explore the distinctive coastal environment and feature works by Australian artists with a connection to the Mornington Peninsula. The gallery also showcases its outstanding collection, which focuses on the cultural heritage of the Mornington Peninsula and contemporary Australian works on paper. Through events organised by the Gallery, visitors are able to engage more fully with the art and the artists. The Gallery conducts lectures, excursions, artist talks and workshops. It also has an important education program to help cultivate an interest in art in

Beleura House A Mornington Treasure BELEURA, built in 1863 by James Butchart on land purchased at Schnapper Point (now Mornington), was described as the finest mansion in the colony. Subsequently owned by a succession of rich, powerful and successful families, it was purchased in 1916 by George Tallis and was the summer retreat for his family for many decades. In 1950 it became the home of Jack Morton Tallis by family agreement, and his life thereafter was dedicated to the preservation of Beleura. John Tallis, as he preferred to be known, died in 1996 and bequeathed Beleura and its considerable contents to the people of Victoria, requesting that it become a house museum. In November, 2004, his dream was realized and Beleura and its gardens are now open to the public in the way he wished. Although a number of accounts record that the land on which Beleura was built was the property of the

50

mainstreetmornington.com.au

/MainStreetMornington

Hunter brothers, a map of the time shows that the Yan-ti-Cran grant of 1840 was recorded in the name of “Mr. Hunter.” Another record lists the owner as “A.M.Hunter.” James Butchart, the builder of Beleura, had amassed a fortune, said at the time of his death to be one of the largest in the colony. He did this by supplying the miners on the goldfields of Ballarat, Bendigo and Castlemaine with many of the things they needed. When he retired in 1862, at the age of forty, he leased and subsequently bought land at Schnapper Point. To quote John Hetherington of The Age in 1963:

“Butchart seems to have been one of the first men to settle on the Peninsula with the idea, not so much of farming the land, as of living graciously in the manner of a squire.” Accordingly, James Butchart set about building /MainStreetMornington


attractions

Beleura, a twelve-roomed Italianate villa. It had a large garden and carriageway, which remains to this day. Recent research indicates the architect was Joseph Reed of the firm Reed and Barnes, the same architects who designed the Melbourne Town Hall, the Royal Exhibition Building, the State Library and Melbourne Trades Hall. James Butchart had little time to enjoy Beleura, which was completed in 1865. It is said James Butchart died on the front steps of Beleura in 1869. Prior to his death he commissioned artist Eugene von Guerard to capture the view of Beleura. This painting was completed in 1870 and is on display in the National Gallery of Australia. Enterprising and successful Melbourne businessman Charles Edward Bright acquired Beleura after the death of James Butchart. Charles Bright married the daughter of the Governor of Victoria, and Beleura became the official vice-regal summer retreat. When the Brights travelled to England in 1873 with the Governor and his wife, Mornington Grammar School was conducted on the premises. Caleb Joshua Jenner, another successful businessman, leased Beleura in 1883 and used it as a summer retreat

before purchasing the property in 1888. During the time Beleura was owned by Caleb Jenner, much-needed service areas were added to the mansion, effectively doubling it in size.

He had natural ability and huge ambition; controlling one of the biggest theatre companies in the world. He was also part of the fledgling Hoyts theatre chain.

Caleb Jenner died at Beleura in 1890. After her attempts to sell the property were unsuccessful, his widow, Eliza, continued to use Beleura until 1899.

In 1922, George Tallis was knighted for his services to the theatre. The Tallises loved entertaining their theatrical friends at Beleura, especially Dame Nellie Melba who slept in the palatial guest bedroom.

Robert Smith, a pastoralist, purchased the property in 1899. Following Robert Smith’s death in 1904, ownership of Beleura passed to his widow, Jane.

Sir George acquired surrounding land at Beleura over the years, eventually owning some 2000 acres at Mornington.

William Ernest Albert Edgwick, another grazier, acquired Beleura in 1911 and is believed to be responsible for painting the exterior for the first time.

Sir George was playing a round of golf at Gleneagles in Scotland with his youngest son, John Tallis, when he received news of the death of Lady Tallis at Beleura in 1933.

In 1915, William Edgwick sold to a syndicate which subdivided Beleura and its 160 acres, renaming it “Beleura on the Sea.” In 1916, Beleura and various parcels of its subdivided land were acquired by George and Amelia Tallis to be once again used as a summer retreat. George Tallis was a man of wealth who migrated to Melbourne in 1886 from Ireland as a seventeen year old.

Sir George Tallis spent his retirement years between Beleura and Braehour, interspersed with regular overseas trips. Sir George died in August 1948, and is buried with Lady Tallis in the Box Hill cemetery. The estate was divided between the four children, and it appeared that the task of caring for the aging Beleura was not attractive to any of them. At a family

/MainStreetMornington


attractions meeting, John agreed to take on responsibility for Beleura rather than see it sold. Between 1925 and 1940, John Tallis was a resident of Europe. The only break in that period was when he returned home for a short time following the death of his mother in 1933. He later suggested that this extended time in Europe was to equip him to follow his father as a theatre impresario. Back in Australia in 1940 he joined the army, serving in the intelligence section. Later he helped out on the family farm at Wagga Wagga and tried to settle down, having “some success with ballet, composition and broadcasting.” His place in Australian music history rests in his numerous scores for ballet. John Tallis built on the Italianate influences of the original design and made a series of changes to the interior and exterior of Beleura. John Tallis decided to go to Italy in 1953, buying two chandeliers for Beleura in Venice, and in Florence a “delightful little statue fountain.” After a short time in Paris, he travelled to London where he attended auctions in the mornings and the theatre at night. John Tallis was back in Australia by the end of 1953. Like his father before him, John Tallis collected art. He also collected books and formed a fine library based around his enthusiasms. The interior that we see today is still the result of the 1950’s renovations. The garden features the original nineteenth century driveway layout, rear courtyards and conifer trees. The recent removal of many layers of white paint has returned the exterior of the house to its original appearance. Over the decades the duty of care became something of an obsession for John Tallis. Before he died in 1996, he made arrangements to give his treasured house and garden to the people of Victoria, seemingly knowing that for him the last lingering rays of the Edwardian sun were setting. Guided tours are scheduled on selected days throughout the year. Visitors are collected from a nearby location and transferred to Beleura in a courtesy bus. Tea, coffee, shortbread, and a light lunch are served to guests. The tour takes approximately four and a half hours. The cost is $39 ($36 concession) and bookings can be arranged by phoning 5975 2027.
