How to Visit Mornington Peninsula
Driving south of Melbourne, you’ll be greeted with a sparkling blue coastline as the Mornington Peninsula reaches your fingertips.
Spanning an area of 724 square kilometres, the Mornington Peninsula is a major tourist destination attracting millions of visitors each year. You’ll have your choice of visiting the heart of Mornington with cute shops and cafes, or heading farther south to make your way towards Portsea, stopping into small coastal towns along the way.

Point Nepean National Park provides outstanding views of the beautiful landscape located at the southern tip of the Peninsula. Full of rich history, there is a range of informative scenic walks to explore, including an array of historic buildings.
If it’s the beach you’re after, you’ll have your work cut out for you. Stop in at Sorrento, Blairgowrie, Rye, Flinders or Safety Beach. If it’s a bit chilly and you need to warm up, look no further than Peninsula Hot Springs with geothermal waters from a well deep below the earth’s surface. Or, why not drive inland to taste the delicious wine produced in the region?
