Wander the Western Port Way

Wander the Western Port Way

by Mornington Peninsula Tourism - 12/01/2018

Western Port lies to the east of Port Phillip and in the eastern half of the state of Victoria, but in 1798 it was the most western section of coastline explored by George Bass and his crew travelling from Sydney in a whaleboat, no less. The drive today along the main Frankston-Flinders Road travels through several small villages and past hidden swimming beaches and surf breaks, rolling rural landscapes with pockets of bush, farmland and vineyards.

Discover distilled deliciousness and beautiful brews

Discover distilled deliciousness and beautiful brews

Although beer is one of the world's oldest prepared beverages, possibly dating back to the early Neolithic or 9500 BC, there is nothing old-hat about the brewers, cidermakers and distillers of the Mornington Peninsula. Yes, the local wine industry is well established but now there's some sibling rivalry in the local cellar door scene. There’s a new world of handcrafted beer including seasonal releases, local apples made into whole-juice cider, and artisan distillers creating distinctive gins, vodkas, limoncellos and more.

Ahhhh, the beach...the sun, the sand, the water...time to switch off, lay out the beach towel, ‘slip slop slap’ and soak up some sunshine, right? Sure, that’s certainly one way to spend your time at the beach, but with over 190 kilometres of coastline, the Mornington Peninsula has so many fun beaches, each with their own beauty and charm, that are just begging to be enjoyed in so many OTHER fun ways!
