Destination guide

Where small-town charm meets rugged, natural beauty

Situated about an hour's drive to the southeast of Melbourne and nestled between Port Phillip Bay and Western Port Bay, Mornington Peninsula is an idyllic mix of small-town charm and rugged, natural beauty. Thanks to its easy, breezy access to Australia's second largest city, some of the areas and neighbourhoods dotting its western shorelines are regarded as outlying suburbs of greater Melbourne. This makes for the perfect escape from the city's comparatively hectic landscape, and Mornington Peninsula vacation rentals offer the ultimate feeling of the laid-back, local life that Oz is known for.

Things to do

Adventures in wining, dining and even ziplining

Aside from Mornington Peninsula's natural beauty, there are also quite a few museums and attractions in the area worth visiting. Take the kids through the hedge maze at Ashcombe Maze & Lavender Gardens, or, for the more adventurous types, go ziplining at the Enchanted Adventure Garden. Other highlights include the Arthurs Seat Eagle gondola, the McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery and Charlie's Auto Museum and Cafe. Much of the peninsula is now occupied by vineyards and orchards, making it the perfect escape for foodies on the hunt for a great wining and dining experience.


A coastal escape from the urban hustle and bustle

While Mornington Peninsula is popularly known as a day trip from Melbourne, there's plenty to do here that can and will occupy more than just a few hours. Laze on any of the sandy beaches, or hike along the trails that line the rugged southern coast and the Mornington Peninsula National Park, perfect for birdwatching or stargazing, depending on the conditions. Take a driving tour of the peninsula's historic seaside villages, stopping to shop and cafe-hop along the way. The local wine scene is constantly growing and evolving, or plan for a spa day for the ultimate relaxing escape.


Never underestimate the power of the shoulder season

Victoria and the rest of southern Australia is a worthwhile stop all year long, with summer offering the best weather and the biggest crowds. You'll find the beach days to be most ideal from January through March, but prices will also be higher. Consider the shoulder seasons if other outdoor activities are on your list, because the cooler temperatures, smaller crowds and lower prices might make for a more enjoyable experience. Winters in the region are relatively mild, but keep rain gear in mind as you check out Mornington Peninsula vacation rentals.

Natural highlights

From family-friendly beaches to untouched coastlines

Mornington Peninsula is surrounded by Port Phillip to the west, Western Port to the east and Bass Strait to the south, with the Mornington Peninsula National Park not far from the coast. On the west, you'll find calm, family-friendly beaches along the bayside towns of Mornington and Sorrento. Along the Bass Strait, however, a more rugged coastline awaits, with trails along the Bass Strait and into the Mornington Peninsula National Park. It's just a short ferry ride to other nearby towns and islands, including Queenscliff on the Bellarine Peninsula.
