The festive season is very much an exciting time of the year. There is always something to celebrate with those loved ones around us, alongside gifts to be shared as part of ongoing traditions. Yet when we are faced with the challenge of picking the perfect present to outshine all others, it can be hard to know where to start looking. Thankfully (and finally), you’re most definitely in the right place here. Read on to discover how gifting a Mornington Peninsula experience this season will not only be special, but undeniably memorable too.
Relax and Unwind
Gifting an experience at Peninsula Hot Springs, Alba Thermal Springs & Spa or One Spa at RACV Cape Schanck Resort is a top recommendation to start. Each of these locations offers luxurious spa treatments alongside opportunities to completely indulge in relaxation for the day. Mornington Peninsula hot springs are as beautiful as they are rejuvenating, with multiple packages and offerings suitable as a gift to give.

Wine and Dine
A day out savouring the tastes and sights at top Mornington Peninsula wineries remains a timeless gift for any season throughout the year. Yet in the summertime, when vineyard leaves turn a vibrant green and the sun shines a warming glow on the landscape, this epicurean adventure is at its most enticing. Both Paringa Estate and Port Phillip Estate in Red Hill South pave the way for unparalleled winery lunch and dinner experiences. Treat your friends and family to an afternoon or evening with exceptional flavours and picture-perfect window views. Don’t forget to wine and dine in the recently reopened Pt. Leo Restaurant and Laura at Pt. Leo Estate in Merricks! You can find more information on their anticipated reemergence here.
