Travelling out of the metro bustle of Melbourne, you’ll discover a tucked away region boasting storybook scenery dotted with cute hobby farms, quaint townships and rolling green hills. Mornington Peninsula is a place brimming with boutique wineries, fruit orchards and historic attractions. Before you start exploring the beautiful peninsula, you’ll take in stunning oceans views from Arthurs Seat.
What could be more delightful than sitting in a rustic building, surrounded by lush green grass, and nibbling on rich goat cheese? While the goats bleat away in the background and the wind sighs through the trees. This is one of the more unique experiences you’ll have on your Mornington Peninsula tour and if you’ve never tasted goat cheese, we suggest you sit back and be ready for a taste sensation.
You’ll be treated to tastings at T’Gallant, the birthplace of Australian Pinot Grigio, the flinty, lemony, pear flavoured wine that exudes Italian style and taste. The winery has an extraordinary selection of artisan wines, influenced by European traditions and made with an Australian twist.
Now you’ll visit Merricks General Wine store. Authentic country charm with delicious food and welcoming staff this tin and timber shed is a destination not to be missed. The Merricks General Wine Store is a Peninsula icon established in 1924. Today it serves as the Cellar Door for Baillieu, Elgee Park and Quealy wines, vignerons with deep ties to the Mornington Peninsula.
This magnificent area will continue to amaze you over lunch (at own expense) in the seaside town of Flinders. Based on the southern edge of the peninsula, Flinders opens out to the wild Southern Ocean and views from its beaches are breathtaking. After lunch, you’ll have time to explore the township with its boutique shops and galleries.
Not to be outdone in the food stakes, we’ll also take you to our local strawberry farm, where you can pick your own strawberries and sample luscious strawberry liqueurs and ciders. Or if you fancy, indulge in strawberries with chocolate dipping sauce or strawberry ice-cream smothered in strawberry sauce.
Be immersed in a fully edible landscape at Green Olive at Red Hill. A true food lover’s paradise! You’ll be taken on a private tour to learn about the lush kitchen garden, vineyards, chickens and of course, the olive grove. Then it’s time to taste-test the freshest farm grown olives and olive oil. Before you go, enjoy delicious farm-roasted coffee or tea and farm-made biscuits.
Complete your visit to the Mornington Peninsula with a visit to Dromana to photograph the famous multi-coloured bathing boxes.
