Getting here by car is so easy
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.
Being just an hours' drive from Melbourne means you can get here easily. There are a number of ways to access the Mornington Peninsula by car
- Use the Monash Freeway (M1) and City Link/Linkt to connect to Eastlink* (M3), connecting to Peninsula Link (M11) and the Mornington Peninsula freeway (B110).
- Follow the Nepean Highway (3) along the Port Phillip Bay coastline to Point Nepean Rd (B110).
- Use the Monash Freeway (M1) and City Link/Linkt* to connect to the Westernport Highway (A780), then head for the Western Port Bay coastline along the Frankston-Flinders Rd (C777)
*Note: both the Eastlink and the Citylink/Linkt parts of the Monash Freeway have tolls that will require a pass for travel if you choose to use them in your route. There are no toll booths, but passes can be purchased online prior to travelling or up to 3 days after the first trip.
