Places To Go

There is a lot to discover about the Mornington Peninsula

So many places to go, and things to see and do. Drive along our coastlines with their waterfront restaurants, cafes and lavish cliff-top mansions and you can see why the Mornington Peninsula has long been a favourite destination for lazy beachside holidays that come with green hinterlands and wild ocean beaches on the side. 

But if you haven't visited us for some time, you'll be very pleasantly surprised at how the Peninsula has completely redefined the traditional beachside holiday. If you've never visited us, you're in for some delightful surprises. Cliff-top mansions, lively local markets, grand historic gardens and galleries spilling over with art and antiques create colour and life around our seaside villages. Our bays tempt you with every type of water sport you could wish for, from sailing to scuba diving, fishing to sea kayaking.

While all care is taken to ensure that the information contained within this website is current, due to the rapidly evolving coronavirus situation we ask that you also check the information contained in the websites of the venues that you plan to visit.  These websites will provide you with additional news that will ensure you have the most up-to-date local knowledge and help you make the most of your visit to the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. 



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.
