Mornington Peninsula

A little bit Mediterranean and a whole lot Aussie, the Mornington Peninsula has got the best of both worlds.

Explore butter-smooth shores stretching along the coastline that holds in the gentle waters of Port Phillip Bay. Surfers sniff out the ocean waves that knock against the peninsula’s Bass Strait coast while local fishing boats haul in a daily catch that’ll make it to your plate just in time for lunch. Venture out into the hinterland hills to find wineries, spas and farm-fresh produce.
