We always say to our guests before arriving at this location, that you feel like you are in multiple countries at the same time. You get vibes of Ireland 🇮🇪, Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿, Mexico 🇲🇽, Iceland 🇮🇸, Hawaii 🇺🇸and of course Australia 🇦🇺.

From walking through native bushland to rolling hills to dramatic coastal rock formations to waterfalls to turquoise rock pools.

It’s one of the very special lesser known natural wonderlands we often explore on our adventures of the #morningtonpeninsula

Our full day adventure including Paddleboarding, hiking, rock pool swims, picnic lunch, hot springs, and wine tasting runs until the mid-late April so there is still time this season to experience it.

Whatever the temperature, WAM has the perfect adventure for you.

When it’s really warm like it is this weekend, our full day adventure will:

🐠 Spend more time cooling off on and in the ocean,
🌳 Take you on shady rainforest hikes with a micro climate that feels cooler than everywhere else,
🌊 Enjoy at picnic at a breezy ocean viewpoint,
♨️discovering the cold water wellness experiences at the @peninsulahotsprings (the hot pools also feel amazing on a warm day after you have been on an active adventure of SUPing and hiking)
🍷 Tasting wine at a cellar door in the comfort of aircon.

Our guests this weekend, rather than feeling drained from the heat, they all felt totally rejuvenated even after a full day of adventure!

A few years ago I was watching a film/documentary called '2040' which explores what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream.

One of the points raised in the film that really struck a cord was that more girls completing education is crucial for fighting climate change.

It made me wonder if there was a program here in Australia that WAM could donate to which supported Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women through education.

This led to connecting with the @starsfoundationaustralia who run programs to improve health, education and employment outcomes for First Nations girls and young women across Australia.

Coincidentally it turned out that the executive director of the Stars Foundation had spoken at the premier of the 2040 film about the power of women completing education as part of the solution to climate change.

To cut a long story short, fast forward a few years and WAM is committed to supporting the Stars Foundation, and i'm proud to say in 2022-23 we funded one school year of education for a Stars Foundation female student based here in Victoria.

Bringing things full circle, last week I was fortunate enough to meet Damon Gameau the director of 2040, and was able to thank him for the inspiration through his film making.

WAM is committed to supporting the Stars Foundation for years to come as part of our WAM 4 Project and 2030 goals which you can learn more about on our website.

We’re extremely proud to announce that Wild Adventures Melbourne (WAM) has been chosen as a finalist in the 35th National Banksia Sustainability Awards, regarded as the most prestigious sustainability Awards in Australia and longest-running Sustainability Awards in the world.

WAM is a finalist in the Sustainable tourism award category which recognises outstanding businesses in the tourism industry that prioritise environmental conservation and have demonstrated a commitment to minimising their ecological footprint, promoting responsible travel and visitor education, supporting local communities, and preserving natural and cultural heritage.

As a micro-tourism owner-operator business, WAM doesn't enter many awards due to limited resources. So being recognised as a finalist in these national awards makes it even more special and gives us confidence our unique progressive approach to positive impact tourism has the potential to help transform the industry into a force for good.

The 26th January is a day of mourning and survival for our First Nations Communities, a date that’s a painful reminder of the profound loss of sovereignty over land, family, and cultural rights for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.

As an ally non-Indigenous business, we choose to respectfully and continuously listen, learn and reflect from our First Nations People and stand in solidarity acknowledging that January 26th is not a date to celebrate.

Every day we are thankful and pay our respects to the Bunurong / Boon Wurrung People of the Kulin Nation on lands and waters where we operate.

Always was. Always will be.

This year during the @australianopen we welcomed the @carotaboys (aka the official fan club of @janniksin ) on a WAM experience checking out local produce, beaches, wildlife, and sunsets of the #morningtonpeninsula . The nicest guys and lots of fun and laughter throughout.

Great to visit @kerrigreens and @peninsula_fresh_seafood as part of the day.
...

The WAM van may not be a restaurant, but we had it specially modified so we can pull up to the most breathtaking views for meals.

Our guests love kicking back on the seating during an eco adventure tasting the freshest locally made and grown produce, whilst marvelling at the panoramic vistas.
