The Mornington peninsula has beautiful ocean beaches on one side of its stunning landscape and calmer waters on the bay side. The historic bayside villages of Portsea and Sorrento have long been popular playgrounds for Melburnians and boast grand hotels and other stately buildings.
It really is holiday central down here with world class golf courses and wineries mixed in with beachfront style that you won’t find anywhere else in Australia.
Reminiscent of the English seaside the colourful beachfront cabins make an unfogettable impression.
Accommodation options are plentiful with self contained beachfront apartments and secluded bed and breakfasts hiding in the dunes.
Most important: Book directly with the operator. This way your money stays with the operator and you often get a better rate or added services rather than supporting the big overseas booking sites.
