So much to see, so much to do – and it’s so very easy to get here.
You can leave Melbourne and be in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula’s hinterland in about an hour. It couldn’t be a more relaxing, pleasant drive. Whether you choose to take the coastal roads, the freeways or the seaways… you’ll be here in about an hour with superb views en route.
The best way to explore the region is to drive yourself. Make sure you pick up a touring map before you plan your trip. The majority of roads are well maintained and clearly numbered. GPS can be misleading and it is always advisable to consult a map and road signs as you go to reinforce you are on the correct route. Use our "Get Directions Gadget' below to help plan your route.
Public transport around the Mornington Peninsula is via a combination of train and bus services and is limited to the Port Phillip coast between Frankston and Portsea, and the Westernport coast between Frankston via Hastings to Flinders. There is no public transport into the hinterland area. Buses and trains all require ‘myki’ ticketing. This ticketing is valid for all of Melbourne's trains, trams and buses, including those on the Mornington Peninsula. The reusable smart ‘myki’ card is easy to use. Simply top up before your journey and then touch on and touch off at a myki reader as you travel.
The local Taxi Service can offer service from Mt. Eliza to Portsea on the Port Phillip side of the region, and Pearcedale/Baxter to Flinders on the Western Port side. Frankston Radio Cabs Taxi Bookings 03 9786 3322
