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.

Around the greens

You're in Mornington Peninsula's 'The Cups' region, so play golf amid the rolling sand hills at The Dunes in Rye, or Moonah Links, home of the Australian Open tournament.

On the water and in

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.

Slow things right down with a visit to the Peninsula Hot Springs. Choose from 20 different bathing experiences and feel your body unwind in the hot thermal pools surrounded by the pristine Australian landscape.
