1. Fuel Your Body With Farm Fresh Produce
The Mornington Peninsula offers a bountiful collection of farmgates, each overflowing with the most delicious fresh produce. Between Hawkes Farm in Boneo, Torello Farm in Dromana and Benton Rise Farm in Tuerong, expect to find sweet fruits, crunchy vegetables, local gourmet delights and more. Make sure to also stop by Somerville Egg Farm in Moorooduc where the freshest of eggs can be purchased, ideal for those hearty breakfasts to begin the day. You can see our seasonal calendar of produce grown locally and available each season here!

2. Reset In Geothermal Springs
One of the most rejuvenating ways to relax this spring is by bathing in the natural geothermal waters at Peninsula Hot Springs and Alba Thermal Springs & Spa in Fingal. Make the most of your visit with spa treatments, private bathing opportunities as well as fresh and healthy on-site dining. Let the mind, body and spirit relax and reset whilst immersing within the warming outdoor waters. Peninsula Hot Springs also offers yoga classes for those looking to improve strength and balance.

3. Walk Your Way Alongside Some Of Our Best Views
It goes without saying our region offers up magnificent views between coast and country. And it’s on The Coastal Walk where you’ll bear witness to a stunning rugged landscape, windswept beaches and fresh ocean air. We think it is one of the best walks on the Mornington Peninsula! From Cape Schanck to the Point Nepean National Park, the 30km route takes walkers on a range of terrains along the Bass Strait coast. There are several sections able to be completed as shorter walks if desired.

4. Give Yourself Space To Move At Your Own Pace
If you’re looking for comfortable, cosy, and completely irresistible accommodation on the Mornington Peninsula, we’ve got you covered! This spring, spend a night (or more!) at the newly renovated Lakeside Villas at Crittenden Estate in Dromana, or Arakoola Studio in Balnarring. These self-contained sites offer guests plenty of space to move at their own pace, alongside inviting living zones and furnishings. You’ll also be in prime locations to explore more of the region’s top attractions, including Mornington Peninsula wineries, breweries and hot springs.

5. Refresh Your Mind By Creating Something New
Time to get a little bit creative? Absolutely yes! There are many masterclasses to participate in across the Mornington Peninsula, but we’ve picked out two that we think will be perfect for the new season recharge. The Candle Making Workshops at Red Hill Candle Co in Dromana invite guests to experience a world of delicious fragrance, before designing two custom candles to take home. In the kitchen at Georgie Bass in Flinders, hands-on Cooking Classes guided by industry-leading chefs equip guests with all the skills to be a master chef at home!
