What You Can Expect

Mornington Peninsula including Strawberry Farm Day Tour from Melbourne

T'Gallant Vineyard, Mornington Peninsula

After pickup from your Melbourne hotel, travel by comfortable coach about one hour to the charming seaside town of Mornington, gateway to the peninsula. You’ll have time to see the grand old buildings along Main Street and perhaps pop into the shops and sidewalk cafes before continuing on to Portsea.

Located on a thin strip of land near the tip of the peninsula, Portsea has the calm waters of Port Phillip on one side and the rugged surf beaches of Bass Strait on the other. It has become one of the most exclusive places in Melbourne to live, and you’ll pass the seaside mansions of the rich and famous on your way to Portsea’s back beach. You’ll have time for a short walk and photo ops on the beach.

From Portsea, you’ll drive to Sorrento, reaching the elegant and historic town in time for lunch; Sorrento features some of the best restaurants and cafes on the peninsula. You’ll have time to enjoy your meal (own expense) and take in the lively ambiance of main street with its limestone buildings, boutiques, art galleries and antique shops.

After lunching in Sorrento, you’ll reboard your coach and head to Flinders, a small town that has retained its historic charm. You’ll visit the lookout where you’ll get panoramic views of Bass Strait.

Next you’ll venture inland to Sunnyridge Strawberry farm, Australia's largest strawberry producer. You can choose to pick fresh strawberries to take home, visit the gift shop where you can find locally made jam, honey, cider, wine and pottery, or grab a coffee and dessert at the cafe (own expense).

After refueling on the farm, you’ll drive to Arthur's Seat, the highest point on the peninsula, with sweeping views over Port Phillip Bay. Stretch your legs and snap some pics before returning to Melbourne.

Don was a great and informative guide, had a blast of a time with him and enjoyed this trip. picked a lot of strawberries and bought fresh fruits that were very tasty.

This tour is by far one of the best tours I have ever done! If you are visiting Melbourne for the first time and want to get out of the city for the day, I would highly recommend you do this.
Our tour guide/bus driver was very informative and really let us take in and enjoy each stop. Mornington was absolutely beautiful and a very peaceful place.
The strawberry picking was the fun part for me and they tasted delicious!

Very enjoyable and scenic day trip. A number of short stops for photo opportunities and longer stops at Arthur's Pass, Strawberry Farm, Gardens and Mornington Pier. The devonshire tea at Arthur's Pass was most enjoyable and sitting there looking across the bay was very relaxing. At the Strawberry Farm we were each given a large punnet to pick our strawberries. Even though the wather in the weeks leading up to our visit had not been the ideal climate for strawberry growing the ones that we picked and consumed over the following couple of days were the sweetest that I have ever tasted. Gardens were good especially impressed by the Rose Garden. Stop at lookout to see across to the entrance of Bass Strait was worthwhile. Driver was very knowledgeable and helpful.

4 star rating: Recommended January 2014

We had a wonderful time. Really enjoyed the tour and 10/10 for our driver
Gordon. We were taken to some beautiful locations, only disappointment was that the advertised
maze and lavender farm were no longer part of the tour.

The tour guidedriver was well organised and new a lot about the Mornington Penninsula. Lovely to have spent time and have lunch at the Lavender farm and we enjoyed morning tea provided at Arthurs seat. Plenty of wine to sample at the wineries.
