Smell the salt as you wind your way up Paradise Drive, towards Big Blue Backyard. An ankle height sign on the side of the road shows you into a treed canopied parking space. Big Blue Backyard is Victoria's Award winning ocean beach hideaway retreat.

An hour's drive from Melbourne and perfectly positioned on the Mornington Peninsula to access Australia's most exciting food and wine region, or play at one of the three top 10 golf courses in Australia, or simply explore the briny cool rock pools and coastal landscape of the backyard.

Three secluded hideaways private, spacious, welcoming, connect to the main house via boardwalks and meandering paths through the indigenous garden, which can lead you through the national park if you follow the blue painted stones, all the way to the wild and almost always deserted St Andrew's Beach.

Each distinctive hideaway, offers a large spacious living area, light filled en-suite and a private deck with a double spa bath, where you can relax into and soak up the sounds of the bush and the ocean.

Delicious, freshly prepared, long tray breakfasts are delivered each morning at a pre-arranged time. Rise to the salt mist and freshly brewed coffee. Romantic dinners prepared by Chef and owner are served by candlelight, alfresco on a secluded deck or in the privacy of each hideaway. A truly unique, private dining experience.

Friendly, discreet and informative service promises an exceptional Mornington Peninsula experience. Please contact Big Blue Backyard for further information or view their website.
