Outdoor activities

Immerse yourself into Mornington Peninsula's welcoming waters and famed golf courses andf enjoy an array of adventure activities to boost your adrenaline.

By the water
Find the action out in the water. Try a spot of fishing, paddle around in a sea kayak or dive among old shipwrecks along the coast. And land lubbers, why not try a thrilling horseback ride on the beach?

Swim at calm beaches along the 260 kilometres of coastline and come face-to-face with dolphins, seals and penguins. Ride the waves at wild ocean breaks, set sail from one of dozens of piers, or enjoy a bike ride along beachfront paths. For the hi-energy sports lover, there's kite surfing and parasailing.

On dry land
When you're not getting active around the water, take in pristine seascapes as you play a round of golf at one of the 19 renowned golf courses. Alternatively, embark on an epic walk right across the peninsula. Keep a lookout for native wildlife along the way.

Ask a local
If you're curious about trying any of the peninsula's outdoor activities, contact a local activity operator for professional tuition, organised tours and perhaps a regional secret or two.
