we're connecting guests to the region

With its extraordinary rolling hills, lush woodlands and unique townships, the Mornington Peninsula is considered a gem of Victoria’s extended coastline.
What may present as a scenic coastal town, our region is rich in culture and artistic history which has shaped every culinary experience, adventurous bush track, art exhibition and humbling local vibe. The Mornington Peninsula is located just over an hour from Melbourne and is a coveted destination abundant with engaging hideaways and eclectic eateries, promoting an electric atmosphere which attracts an annual intake of over 8 million domestic and international visitors.
At Peninsula Hot Springs, we are passionate about our region and want our guests to make the most of its spectacular attractions and scenery - which is why we have created the Peninsula Wellness Hub. Designed as a space to connect visitors to the Mornington Peninsula, our team will assist you in creating the ultimate coastal escape and put you in touch with some of the most innovative businesses across the region.
The feeling which grows from the simple beginnings of the Mornington Peninsula, makes an escape to our region one that can be likened to the comfort of a 'home away from home'. Whether you opt for a beachside retreat, bespoke bed and breakfast, luxury hotel or a nature side caravan park, each accommodation stay is an opportunity to explore our townships and the friendly faces which will make you feel truly welcomed.
Switch off mid-week and discover Boathouse Resort in Blairgowrie, where you can pick the perfect room to suit your stay or transform your visit into a complete coastal escape at Plantation House at Whitecliffs in Rye.

eat & drink
The Mornington Peninsula has redefined the gastronomic, winery and craft brewing industry. From the appreciative tasting of dégustation to spontaneous, casual dining, our region boasts some of the most quality garden produce enhanced by local brews prepared by the hands of knowledgeable beer and cider makers.
Our breweries, cideries and distilleries are a site of contemporary delight. On your next visit, be sure to immerse in a complete sensory experience at Escape Brewing and watch on as you see magic prepared from the working brewery in operation. If you prefer something a little darker and richer, pay a visit to Chief’s Son Distillery and explore an innovative maker of fine whisky using the very best of artisan ingredients and small batch processes, creating a drop perfect on it’s own or with a side of local cheese.
Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, taking some time for yourself or on the quest to created the ultimate itinerary, there is something for everyone on the Mornington Peninsula. Whilst our hidden trails, native bush tracks and coastal terrain are spectacular when explored on foot, get in touch with The Ranch and elevate your experience on horseback. For those who prefer coast to land, create magical memories through dolphin swims with Watermaarq or Polperro Dolphin Swims, or find your sense of adventure as you skim the surface with water bike tours from Water Bikes Australia.
Marking a special celebration? Get the group together and discover beautifully scented products which welcome you to the wonderful world of fragrance. Spark joy and creativity with Red Hill Candle Co. as you connect over a candle making workshop, taking you beyond the sights and taste of the region and transports you to a sensory delight – perfect for hen's parties, bridal showers and birthday celebrations.
With 723 square kilometers to explore, the Mornington Peninsula is home to Victoria’s most spectacular golden beaches, vineyard covered hills and unique trails. Whilst you may want to explore it all, take a trip with the experts of our region and discover its splendor with the help of a local guide or tour operator. Wild Adventures Melbourne (WAM) offers day experiences with the perfect blend of ‘action and relaxing’ whilst you discover the sights and scenery of the region.
