The Peninsula Homemaker Centre
cnr Nepean Hwy & Bungower Rd Mornington
This two year old retail complex provides excellent facilities.
- 500 Paved Car Spaces – no dust
- Excellent lighting
- Clean toilets
- Meals at the Sober Mule Café + BBQ outside
- Beverage service available at the Sober Mule
- Open spaces for picnicking.

We operate an entrant’s door raffle. One $2 ticket/car at the entry gate gets you into the raffle. Prizes are drawn at 7:30pm at the LGC tent adjacent the Sober Mule Café. Just find a place to park your car and enjoy a relaxed couple of hours checking the 400 + cars that usually cruise in, grab some ‘walk around’ food from the Sober Mule forecourt or sit down inside for a meal. Kids are well catered for as well. We’ll have a number of trade stands to tempt car enthusiasts and some of the retail stores in the centre remain open as well.
We’d like to thank the centre’s owners, Mirvac P/L, who has made available this great facility for our use. It enables car enthusiasts and their families from all over Melbourne to safely enjoy getting together even more.

Conditions of Entry.
Glass Free: Our use of the Lifestyle Centre requires us to be ‘glass free’.
Any BYO in plastic or metal containers only please.
Entrant’s Cars. All cars being driven to the cruise night should be legally registered and roadworthy. Police regularly attend our events and have requested that we advise all prospective entrants of these requirements.
What’s Legally Registered?:
CH/H/SR Plated Cars. You should have your permit document and an event advertisement with you. Print out a flyer from this page to bring.
Trade Plates. You should be familiar with the conditions that apply to the use of any car driven with a trade plate attached. You may not be able to legally drive it to this event fitted with a trade plate.
Unregistered Car Permits. It’s very unlikely that your VicRoads permit conditions allow you to drive this car to our cruise night. If you believe it does, then make sure before you leave home.
Unregistered Cars. Unregistered cars for display can be trailered to and from the event and unloaded within the Lifestyle Centre’s car park. See a LGC member for assistance if required.
It’s more about being NOT ‘obviously unroadworthy’!
Police have provided examples of what they consider ‘obviously unroadworthy’ and this includes such things as, open headers, drag slicks, no mud guards and very high carby’s/superchargers thru bonnets.
A cruise night is a relaxed informal get together of car enthusiasts and their families, check out the cars, grab a meal and catch up with old friends and make some new ones. Problems surrounding the legality of your car are only going to spoil your night out as well as ours. So help us keep the good vibe we enjoy going by doing the right thing.
LGC is VicRoads approved for red plate events ( all CR, H & SR vehicles)
