While You’re Here…

Just a short drive south-east of Melbourne, lies The Mornington Peninsula. The beautiful stretch of scenic coastline showcases some of the best of what regional Victoria has to offer.

Check out some of Australia’s famous wineries. Pair your wine with a picnic lunch from the range of local gourmet food on offer, or fine dine at one of the region’s Chef’s Hatted restaurants.

The natural hot springs are a popular destination for locals to relax in the picturesque bushland or treat themselves to a day spa experience, inspired by Indigenous Australian techniques.

The peninsular also boasts a vibrant and flourishing art scene, and is home to many artists, galleries and cultural events.

The tip of the peninsular is the gateway to Phillip Island. Here, you can see Australia’s Little Penguins waddle in from the ocean or spot a koala dozing off in a gumtree.
