Australia > Victoria > Mornington Peninsula

The Mornington Peninsula has long been a favourite destination for Melburnians for lazy beachside holidays that come with green hinterlands and award-winning wineries. The Peninsula offers lapping Bay beaches to one side and then a short stroll away, wild surf and rock pools on the ocean beaches.

If beaches aren’t enough, there are lively local markets, sculpture gardens, award-winning wineries, hot springs, grand historic gardens and galleries spilling over with artisan foods, art and antiques creating colour and life around the Peninsula’s bustling seaside villages.

Mornington’s rich red soil and surrounding pristine waters create delectable local produce including mussels, whiting, beef, artisan cheeses and handpicked berries. The beautiful natural environment creates an enviable lifestyle. All this has attracted the most passionate winemakers and top city chefs seeking inspiration and a sea change. These winemakers have built a reputation for producing stunning Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs and Pinot Gris, all with a true sense of place.
