Spending a Magical Weekend in Mornington Peninsula

Looking for the perfect weekend escape? Mornington Peninsula, an hour's drive from Melbourne, is just the place. Here are some of my top picks for a relaxing three day getaway.

  • Peninsula Hot Springs
    2,103 reviews
    This is Victoria's first hot springs and day spa. I visited during winter and loved it. It’s the ideal place to destress while having a soak in the natural mineral waters and taking in the view of lush bushland.
  • Dromana 3 Drive In
    74 reviews
    I've never been to a drive-in cinema before so this was a really fun and unique experience. Tip: get your food and drinks before driving in. I got pizza and had dinner while watching Jurassic World on the giant screen⁠—it was one of my best nights ever.
  • Mornington Peninsula National Park
    73 reviews
    Mornington Peninsula National Park is great for outdoor lovers. There are beautiful coastal walks with numerous lookouts where you can stop to admire the view, and if you’re lucky, you’ll spot a wild kangaroo at Greens Bush.
  • Cape Schanck Boardwalk
    167 reviews
    A hike along the 5-mile-long Cape Schanck Boardwalk is unforgettable, with gorgeous views of the coastline and the iconic Cape Schanck lighthouse.
  • D.O.C Pizza & Mozzarella Bar
    591 reviews
    Gourmet Italian wood-fired pizza, delicious pasta and fresh, creamy mozzarella from the mozzarella bar⁠— this is comfort food at its best.
  • Mornington Peninsula Brewery
    169 reviews
    Sometimes, there’s no better way to chill out than to kick back with an ice-cold pint (or two). Opt for the tasting paddle if you can’t decide—I mean you know what they say, the more the merrier!
  • Montalto
    789 reviews
    Having won numerous “best of” awards, Montalto winery is sure to impress. Spend an afternoon sampling their signature Pinot Noir or Chardonnay while admiring the view of rolling hills and orchards or enjoy a wine-paired meal at the restaurant. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
  • The Enchanted Adventure Garden
    640 reviews
    You'll definitely have fun at this one. Get your adrenaline pumping at this playground for all ages and go "tree surfing", which is an aerial obstacle course that includes zip-lines and tube slides.
  • Polperro Winery
    95 reviews
    Time slows down at Polperro Winery—and in a good way. Here, you can spend your wine o’clock de-stressing with your favorite sips from the winery’s premium Polperro and Even Keel wine labels.
  • Cape Schanck Lighthouse
    200 reviews
    Don’t miss a visit the lighthouse museum and take a guided tour when you’re there. Your guide will tell you all about the history of the lighthouse, which was built in 1859.
  • Sorrento Back Beach
    164 reviews
    Sorrento Back Beach is where all the action happens. Come here early to catch the splendid sunrise and take a dip in the sheltered rock pools (at low tide).
