You can walk for quiet miles along coastal trails, through national parks and on peaceful country lanes, breathing in ocean-fresh air that's instant balm for the weary mind and body. Indulgence is now something we also do very well on the Mornington Peninsula too. Our wineries offer 50 cellar doors, along with restaurants and cafes set in beautifully landscaped gardens and on terraces overlooking the vines. A wine-tasting can stretch into lunch or dinner, and then into an overnight stay in a luxurious suite. A game of golf on one of our 18 courses can also stretch into a post-game drink on a shady verandah, dinner in a fine restaurant and a night in a resort hotel right on the golf course.
Hidden along our hinterland roads are European-style country retreats, intimate hotels, cottages and charming B&Bs. Our coastal accommodation includes beachside luxury in contemporary suites, limestone-and-lace B&Bs and heritage hotels – all with a bonus of fresh sea breezes. How far do you have to travel to indulge in all this? We're just an hour from Melbourne, even though once you get here you may feel you're a world away.
