Savour the beauty of the Mornington Peninsula on this full day tour


An easy hour's drive from Melbourne is a lesser known jewel of Melbourne Tourism. Immerse yourself in the Mornington Peninsula where the majority of Melburnians go for vacation. A fantastic mixture of wildlife, coastal scenery, wineries, artisan shops and so much more.

We will see rolling farmland, connect with the spectacular Cape Schanck and look for Kangaroos in the wild. Depending on your interests we can choose visiting a wildlife park to see a variety of Australia's unique animals. How about relaxing at the quaint town of Flinders exploring artisan shops and epicurean delights? We could visit a Peninsula Winery or riding the spectacular Eagle Gondola down Arthurs Seat with view all the way across Port Phillip. Relax at the Peninsula Hot Springs or perhaps a swim in the Bay if the day is right? (I'll bring towels if you let me know ahead so just bring your swim suits. )

We have time to experience a number of these options so give me your ideas and I will develop a personalised tour just for you.

A Recent Review of this tour

What a great guide! Rick is a very pleasant guy - it was easy to spend the day with him on the Peninsula tour. He is knowledgable about the nature and history of the place. His recommendations were spot on - he listened to what I was after and then was able to deliver a great day. Don't hesitate to book!
