Dromana, Rosebud and Rye

Rediscover sun-kissed days on summer family holidays at the coastal resorts of Dromana, Rosebud and Rye, and uncover after-dark endeavours at the sophisticated bars, winery restaurants and golf courses.

The carnival corner
Join the families flocking annually to the southern end of Mornington Peninsula for endless summer days on bayside beaches with expansive sandbars. Get a nostalgic kick out of the New Year's carnival atmosphere.

Cosmopolitan wining and dining
Take a break from the beaches to tour Dromana's lauded wineries, including Dromana Estate, Hickinbotham of Dromana, and Crittenden Estate. Plant yourself in the Heronswood historic gardens and sample the garden-grown produce.

Rinse off the sunscreen for drinks and dinner in the growing crop of wine bars and cafes, from Dromana right through to Rye.

Above and underwater activities
You're in Mornington Peninsula's 'The Cups' region, so play golf amid the rolling sand hills at The Dunes in Rye, Rosebud Park Golf Course, or Moonah Links, home of the Australian Open tournament.

Discover life underwater in The Octopus's Garden marine trail underneath Rye Pier, or delve into the deep on a fishing charter. Increase your adrenaline by surfing or horseriding at Gunnamatta Ocean Beach.

Choose accommodation to suit your coastal style: return to simple times at a beach campground, or opt for luxury spa accommodation, B&Bs or self-contained cottages.
