Wineries, gourmet produce, busy bayside villages and stunning coastal walks

Regarded as Melbourne’s summer playground, there’s something magically transporting about the Mornington Peninsula. Only an hour’s drive from the city, it’s a place where vineyards meet the seaside – an idyllic haven that feels a world away.

Your Mornington Peninsula experience begins with a visit to the spectacular coastal boardwalks at Cape Schanck. Offering awe-inspiring vistas of the rugged coast, watch as waves pound the dramatically shaped Pulpit Rock. Breathe deep Cape Schanck’s pristine air which also acts as the world reference standard for “zero pollution”.

The region is home to more than fifty boutique wineries producing quality Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Shiraz. Visit one of the most awarded wineries for a structured tasting before settling in for lunch at esteemed Pt. Leo or Port Phillip Estates.

As for the afternoon, your guide’s intimate knowledge of the region puts you in the perfect position to explore breezy seaside villages, discover gourmet delights in the Red Hill hinterland, continue to sample boutique wines or perhaps see Australian wildlife at Moonlit Sanctuary – the choice is yours.

On return to Melbourne, admire expansive views of Port Phillip Bay and Melbourne’s city skyline as you descend Arthurs Seat, the highest point of this beautiful region.


Optional Additions

Visit Moonlit Sanctuary

Just 60-mins from Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula, Moonlit Sanctuary is an award-winning wildlife and conservation park where you can get up-close at Australia’s amazing wildlife.  Hand feed kangaroos and wallabies, pet friendly koalas and enjoy encounters with colourful birds, reptiles, dingoes and many other animals.

Ride Arthurs Seat Eagle

Soar the heights of the Mornington Peninsula with scenic views across Port Phillip Bay towards Melbourne, around the coast and beyond.
Gliding quietly through the sky in a gondola at Arthurs Seat Eagle, you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve been transported a million miles away, rather than one hour’s drive from Melbourne.

Swim with Dolphins and Seals

Join a 3-hour snorkel adventure with resident Bottlenose Dolphins, swim alongside cheeky Australian Fur Seals, explore underwater marine parks filled with colourful fish and join the search for weedy sea dragons.

Relax at the Peninsula Hot Springs
