Winding around the eastern side of Port Phillip Bay and taking in sweeping ocean views and sheltered beaches, Mornington Peninsula boasts quaint coastal villages and hinterland hamlets, acclaimed wineries and restaurants, luxurious spas and renowned golf courses.
There are plenty of ways to fill a day on the compact peninsula, from shopping amid Sorrento's historic limestone buildings to teeing off from the cliff top golf course at Flinders. Treat yourself to a soak in Rye's thermal mineral pools, see works of art at Mornington's renowned gallery, or head to Arthurs Seat for panoramic views. Excellent restaurants are tucked into the wineries in the Red Hill and Main Ridge hinterland, where abundant local produce and regional wines share the spotlight with seaside vistas.
The peninsula's beautiful sandy beaches with their colourful bathing boxes are perfect for relaxing or sailing, surfing and fishing. There are even opportunities for swimming with the dolphins and scuba diving in the Portsea reef system. Majestic coastal walks past dunes, beaches, cliffs and lighthouses are also tempting.
Stay a night in the old Keeper's Cottage at the Cape Schanck Lightstation or choose from myriad other boutique and winery accommodation options on the Mornington Peninsula.
