Discover Your Local Mornington Peninsula Area
With its glittering sunshine, golden beaches and a fresh sea-breeze lays the Mornington Peninsula, Australia's summer paradise. Just an hour from Melbourne, the Peninsula is dotted with attractions such as seaside villages, vineyards, grand historic mansions, national parks, beaches and restaurants, not to mention plenty of things to do.
Walk for miles along the tranquil beaches of Mount Martha, Mt Eliza and Dromana through national parks and spectacular green hinterlands. Enjoy boating, sailing and swimming activities with the dolphins between gentle bay beaches. Portsea and Sorrento's luxurious cliff top mansions will give you a glimpse into what's on in the lives of the rich and famous as you scuba dive amid sea dragons and rays around Portsea Pier.
Drive up to Arthurs Seat for panoramic views of Port Phillip Bay and cast your eyes towards golden beaches and Melbourne's skyline in the distance from the Peninsula's highest point. Wander through the award winning Enchanted Maze Garden at Arthurs Seat with giant tree sculptures and garden art creations. Darkened chambers, fluorescent 3D spray paint art, moving tunnels and life sized mythical characters will enliven the senses.
Stop by one of the 50 boutique cellar doors clustered around Red Hill, Merricks, Balnarring and Main Ridge . Savour the unique flavour of Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Merlot or try one of the award winning beers on tap. Pick your own strawberries, berries and cherries from orchards at Ripe N Ready Cherry Farm or Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm. Fruit ice creams, mouth-watering berry desserts and refreshments will treat your senses to heavenly aromas.
Cellar doors, European style country retreats, lavish million dollar mansions and more than 30 villages to explore, Mornington Peninsula will capture your heart.
