If you’re looking to chill with all of life’s luxuries at your fingertips, the RACV Cape Schanck Resort is the place to stay. The revamped resort offers a range of accommodation, including hotels rooms and villas for families or groups with views of the beach or golf course.
Once you’re checked in, tee off on the 18-hole championship golf course, enjoy the natural surroundings, indulge in a treatment at One Spa, or sample executive chef Josh Pelham’s take on local fare and wines at Cape restaurant. And while you may be excused for not wanting to leave the resort, all the peninsula’s attractions are within easy reach, making it the ideal base from which to explore.
Explore the Beer, Cider & Spirits Trail
The Mornington Peninsula is closely associated with wine, and with good reason. But those after a beer, cider or spirit are spoilt for choice, too. In fact, every year new peninsula producers spring up and you can explore them via the dedicated Beer, Cider & Spirits Trail.
Gin-lovers should head directly to Bass & Flinders Distillery, which recently moved into a new home at Dromana, where you can try your hand at making your own gin during a masterclass. Cheers to that.
