Whether you're with family, friends, or foodies, this full-day guided tour of Mornington Peninsula has something for everyone on visits to Seawinds Gardens for a glimpse of Port Phillip Bay; Enchanted Adventure Garden for kid-friendly mazes; and Mornington Peninsula Chocolates and Green Olive at Red Hill for tastes of some of the peninsula’s best regional foods. It's no wonder that it's known as Melbourne's summer playground.
After morning pickup from your Melbourne hotel, drive about one hour to reach the rolling green hills of the Mornington Peninsula.
Disembark at Seawinds Gardens where you can soak up views of Port Phillip Bay and the Mornington and Bellarine peninsulas. (You might even spot a wild kangaroo!) Just a few minutes down the road, stop at the Enchanted Adventure Garden to explore a number of fun themed mazes such as an indoor 3D maze and a children’s labyrinth where the little ones can delight in fairies and puzzles.
After taking in the Enchanted Adventure Garden, head about 20 minutes south to the historic town of Flinders where you have a light lunch. Save room for a chocolate tasting at Mornington Peninsula Chocolates, where the rich hot cocoa and a variety of high quality chocolates would be equally at home in a Parisian chocolaterie.
Sweet tooth satisfied, continue a few more minutes into the hills to reach Green Olive at Red Hill, a lovely 27-acre working farm. Enjoy a private tour where your guide shows you the veggie and herb gardens, vineyards, olive groves, and animals including chickens and sheep. At the end of the tour, enjoy great views of the lake and landscape while tasting the farm's fresh olives and olive oil. Known as a foodie's paradise, the farm also produces delicious wines, tasty nibbles including homemade sausages, jams and fresh-roasted coffee, and more.
Wrap up your day on the Mornington Peninsula with a visit to the town of Dromana where multicolored bathing boxes line the beach. Snap a few pics and play in the sand before returning to Melbourne where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
