The beautiful Mornington Peninsula is only an hour south-east from Melbourne, but it feels a world away. It boasts 192km of coastline that includes wild ocean beaches and protected bays; as well as lush hinterland and National Parks.
The region is famous for wellness experiences, and high on the list is its naturally heated and healing mineral waters that arise from deep below the earth’s surface. Bathing in these geothermal waters is pure relaxation, especially when followed by a pampering day spa experience.
For something a little more active, hire a bike and pedal around Point Nepean National Park with its outstanding coastal scenery and panoramic views of Bass Strait, the Rip and Port Phillip Bay.
It’s also the perfect place to grow delicious fresh produce and the Mornington Peninsula is famous for it - especially the luscious strawberries. You’ll find farm gate stalls, farmers markets, artisan food producers and incredible cafes and restaurants overlooking kitchen gardens - and you’ll leave feeling nourished in more ways than one.
