Discover the Mornington Peninsula
The Mornington Peninsula Culture
The natural beauty of the Mornington Peninsula has spawned a thriving interest in the arts, and inspired painters, photographers and craftspeople. Their work can be seen on display in the local galleries.
Some of Australia's best-known artists have painted their impressions of Port Phillip's picturesque shoreline on canvas, including McCubbin, Streeton, von Guerard, Mather and Roberts. Follow the Artists' Trails, discover the scenery for yourself and compare it to the interpretative boards that depict and explain the work of those artists.
The Peninsula also has a diverse range of museums that describe and display its rich history.
The Mornington Peninsula Community
The Mornington Peninsula is located just over an hour's drive away from the city, on Melbourne's 'doorstep', and is often described as Melbourne's playground. It is the most popular informal recreation area in Victoria.
The Mornington Peninsula is a 720 square kilometre boot-shaped promontory separating two contrasting bays: Port Phillip and Western Port. 'The Peninsula', as it is affectionately known to local residents, contains a diversity of scenic landscapes and is almost surrounded by the sea, with coastal boundaries of over 190 kilometres, a total of approximately 10% of Victoria's coastline. It is a mixture of urban areas, resort towns, tourist development and rural land.
The Mornington Peninsula Association
Our wineries offer 50 cellar doors, along with restaurants and cafes set in beautifully landscaped gardens and on terraces overlooking the vines. A wine-tasting can stretch into lunch or dinner, and then into an overnight stay in a luxurious suite.
A game of golf on one of our 18 courses can also stretch into a post-game drink on a shady verandah, dinner in a fine restaurant and a night in a resort hotel right on the golf course.
Hidden along our hinterland roads are European-style country retreats, intimate hotels, cottages and charming B&Bs. Our coastal accommodation includes beachside luxury in contemporary suites, limestone-and-lace B&Bs and heritage hotels - all with a bonus of fresh sea breezes.
How far do you have to travel to indulge in all this? We're just an hour from Melbourne, even though our Mediterranean-like coastline may make you feel we're a world away.
