Why Visit Mornington Peninsula
The Mornington Peninsula is a favourite beach holiday destination for Victorians with vast nature based experiences, as well as fine food and wine. Visit the sites of first European settlement near the town of Sorrento, where nowadays yachts bob on their moorings. Swim in Port Phillip Bay at the safe beaches of Rye, Safety Beach and Dromana; or see the wild surf at the ocean beaches of Portsea, Sorrento, Rye, Point Leo and Gunnamatta.
Take in the coastal views and wildlife on a cliff-top walk through Mornington Peninsula National Park. Follow the Fort Nepean Walk past the tunnels guarding Port Phillip Bay. Or take the Bushrangers Bay Trail to Cape Schanck Lighthouse. Climb to the summit of Arthurs Seat State Park for spectacular views of the bay and Melbourne skyline. For a true challenge, the 26-kilometre long Two Bays Trail is the peninsula’s longest continuous walking track, linked by boardwalks, steps, bridges and grass paths. Spot fur seals, dolphins and seabirds on a wildlife cruise from Sorrento.
The Mornington Peninsula is approximately a one-hour drive south of Melbourne.
