Added info:

If you live in Melbourne and are "going down the peninsula," taking M3/highway 11, you'll pass through Seaford.

The "peninsula" refers to the Mornington Peninsula, which juts out into the sea south of Melbourne between Port Phillip Bay and Western Port Bay.

The Mornington Peninsula is well-known to Aussie sea glass collectors due to its proximity to the cities of Melbourne and Frankston.

Here's what Wikipedia has to say in part about the peninsula:

"Much of the peninsula has been cleared for agriculture and settlements. However, small areas of the native ecology remain in the peninsula's south and west, some of which is protected by the Mornington Peninsula National Park.

"The peninsula is primarily a local tourist region, with popular natural attractions such as the variety of beaches both sheltered and open-sea and many scenic sights and views.

"Other popular attractions include the various wineries, mazes and the diverse array of water sports made available by the diversity of beaches and calm waters of Port Phillip and Western Port.

"Most visitors to the peninsula are residents of Melbourne who camp, rent villas and share houses or stay in private beach houses.
