Peninsula Insider with Amanda Wilson Peninsula Hot Springs

Amanda Wilson is the Wellness Director at Peninsula Hot Springs in Fingal. Since opening in 2005, Peninsula Hot Springs has remained a leading wellness and wellbeing destination for Victoria and beyond, attracting thousands of visitors annually. The award-winning destination offers an extensive array of bathing and spa experiences, alongside an impressive lineup of events throughout the year.

Combining world-class industry professionals with sought-after wellness experiences, Awaken at Peninsula Hot Springs represents Australia’s first Hot Springs wellness gathering. On the last Sunday in March, music, yoga, workshops, bathing and more will combine in a fusion of wellness celebration and immersion.

This first-of-its-kind event awakens, Amanda suggests top things to do as part of a wellness weekend away on the Mornington Peninsula:

  1. Shop at Torello Farm

Spot the vibrant yellow umbrellas, wander inside the Dromana-based farmgate and pack a basket of fresh and local produce. This family-owned and run business offers everything from heirloom vegetables to gourmet homemade preserves. Shop from the source and meet the passionate locals who grow and gather quality Mornington Peninsula produce.

  1. Local Market Visit

Mornington Peninsula markets are where local creators, makers, farmers and producers come together to deliver a colourful and delicious day of exploring. Numerous regional markets are held on weekends, including the foodie-focused Red Hill Community Market and the year-round Mornington Racecourse Market.

  1. Bushrangers Bay

Follow the nearby walking tracks, explore the rock pools and fall in love with a rugged yet scenic coastal setting. Incorporating a sandy beach encircled by basalt cliffs, Bushrangers Bay is a treasure trove well worth discovering and exploring.

  1. Afternoon Wine at Kerri Greens

In Red Hill South, Kerri Greens offers relaxed cellar door tastings with the option to BYO picnics. Panoramic valley vistas set an idyllic backdrop for an afternoon wine with friends and various events throughout the year. In 2023, Kerri Greens will be celebrating ten years of operation.

  1. Sunset Bike Ride at Dromana Foreshore

Take in the sunset glow with a ride along the Mornington Peninsula’s Bay Trail. Stop for a photo opportunity (or two) of the natural spectacle along the way. This 30km trail begins at Safety Beach and ends in Portsea. Dromana Foreshore is a picturesque coastal setting with sandy white beaches, colourful beach boxes and crystal clear bay waters.
