Whileaway Guides - Mornington Peninsula
‘The Great Gatsby’ in Victoria? You might just think so when you visit this pocket peninsula. A hop, skip and jump south-east of Melbourne (about 1 hour drive), you’ll find coastal towns with a European flavour boasting protected beaches and picturesque walking trails along Port Phillip Bay, a favourite summertime destination. Coming from the west? Drive onto the car ferry at Queenscliff and enjoy an easy 40 minute cruise to Sorrento. Relax in your Roadster as you cruise through meandering tree-lined roads, pop into grand wineries for a taste of Victoria’s finest Pinot, go for a dip next to the bathing boxes, play a round of golf on one of the record number of courses or sample an array of gourmet delights putting this spot well and truly on the culinary map. With so much to do, spend a while.
