In the 1870s, paddle steamers brought Melburnians to their Mornington Peninsula getaway. These days, a highway dash might lack some of the romance, but the Peninsula itself has only increased in beauty and charm and become even more beloved by a new generation of holiday-makers.
Melbourne's favourite seaside destination, Mornington Peninsula is an enchanted realm of natural, untamed beauty.
Wine and food aficionados are spoilt for choice. Mornington Peninsula boasts an array of award-winning boutique wineries. Complement this with gardens, day spas, cafes, galleries, and hot springs, and you have an easy choice for Melburnians looking for a great weekend away.
Charming roadside stalls will transport you back to earlier times. Stop and stock up your pantry or continue on to a gourmet eatery and fill your senses with Mornington Peninsula's seasonal local produce.
Work on your swing at one of the peninsula's nineteen golf courses.
