Holiday To Mornington Peninsula

Wake up on the right side of the bed every day when you take a Mornington Peninsula holiday. Of course you’ll be soothed to sleep by the waves in Port Phillip, but that’s not all. 
Gorgeous gardens and sunny beaches have a way of putting you in a good mood, and grazing through local markets and winery tasting rooms doesn’t hurt either. Add amazing sunsets, outdoor concerts and good ol’ peace and quiet, and you’re sure to start and end the day refreshed. Already slathering on the sun cream? Check out our Mornington Peninsula packages and get ready to go!

Things to Do in Mornington Peninsula

Located on the southeast side of Port Phillip, the Mornington Peninsula wraps around the bay starting with Frankston and Mornington in the north, all the way to Portsea. To see it all, pick up one of Wotif’s Mornington Peninsula car rental options and take the scenic route—psst, the truth is it’s all scenic route. Lazy sunbathing days are the best way to kick off Mornington Peninsula holidays, and it just so happens travellers arriving from the Melbourne area will practically run right into Frankston Beach. You can run into the water, but change into your bathers first! Northeast of Frankston, let your inner flower child loose in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Cranbourne—it may be out of the way, but this natural wonder is worth the drive.

Back on the coast in the city of Mornington, “luxury” is always the word of the day. Pamper yourself at seaside spa or while away the hours with a shopping spree. Hey, it’s your holiday. Further south, join a wine tour or stick to the waterfront for some prime snorkelling and dolphin-watching in Sorrento and Portsea.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

We weren’t kidding about shopping in Mornington. Main Street is lined with vintage stores and quirky boutiques. Save your travel funds with a fab Mornington Peninsula package and spend an arvo splurging. If you don’t want to leave the gorgeous weather for one minute, drive inland from McCrae to the Red Hill Community Market—a mix of art bazaar and farmers market.

There are far too many good eats in the region to describe right now, but we’ll try. Mornington Peninsula has the perfect mix of avant-garde and comfort food to match its impressive wine and brewery scene. Expect gourmet dishes and fresh, farm-to-table dishes served alongside their signature libations.

Speaking of libations, the nightlife in this region is just as easygoing as the beach walks you’re about to take. Frankston and Mornington have bigger bar scenes, but you can rest assured that neon lights are kept at a minimum. Instead you can chill out with a pint to the sound of live music and crashing waves—we’re into that.

What’s Next?

The bay is waiting! Bundle awesome airfares and accommodation in Wotif’s Mornington Peninsula holiday packages. You’ll score stellar savings on top hotels and flights that fit your schedule, so you can start taking it easy before you even step out the door.
