Mornington Peninsula getaway
Your first stop on the Mornington Peninsula is the Arthurs Seat Eagle, where you'll get a bird's-eye view of the region and beyond. Board a state-of-the-art gondola and cruise over the state forest, spotting city landmarks and local wildlife as you soar to the peninsula's highest point.
If you enjoy living the high life, give tree surfing a shot at the Enchanted Adventure Garden. Traverse suspended rope bridges and wire balances, testing your nerve on the series of aerial obstacles within the beautiful woodland sculpture park.
Having worked up a hearty appetite, cruise into Green Olive at Red Hill. Sit out on the deck and admire the views of the vineyard, kitchen garden and ducks on the dam and feast on all-day tapas prepared with the fruits of the farm.
While you're enjoying the riches of the land, pop over to Montalto Vineyard & Olive Grove for a spot of wine tasting. Take the time to stroll among the sculptures dotted around the peaceful gardens.
Head to the rugged side of the peninsula, where Bass Strait and Westernport Bay meet at Flinders. The best thing about staying overnight at Quarters at Flinders Hotel is you don't need to travel for dinner. By all means wander through the tranquil township and take in the crashing waves at the ocean beach, but then it's time to tuck into a meal to remember at the hotel's bar and bistro The Deck before collapsing into bed.
