Sharing a Port Phillip Bay shoreline with the Nepean Highway, Mordialloc, about 25km south of the CBD, is conveniently located for exploratory visits to the resort towns and villages of the Mornington Peninsula and Western Port. Mind you, Mordialloc has its own charms with a pleasant beach and creek system which is a popular hunting ground for local fishermen. You’ll need a Victorian recreational fishing licence to dangle a line in Mordialloc Creek, but, if your luck’s out, you can catch a fish or any other kind of meal in the beachfront restaurants and cafes. The township’s most prominent land mark, The Cenotaph, tells part of one local family’s World War I tragedy. It bears the names of Frederick and William Thomas, brothers who never returned from the war. Stanley Thomas, too, served in the same war which he survived to reach the age of 94 to become the only brother to die and be buried in his native land.
