The vineyards, orchards, and farmlands of the Mornington Peninsula are the gastronomic playground of Melbourne’s foodies and this full-day tour checks all the boxes for food and wine lovers. Visit a dairy farm, orchard, and chocolatier to taste delicious regional delicacies; enjoy a gourmet lunch at a local restaurant; and indulge in expert-led tastings at up to three wineries, then cap it all off with a visit to the Eureka Skydeck, Melbourne’s highest observation deck.
Enjoy fresh produce from Mornington
After being picked up from your central Melbourne or St Kilda accommodation, meet your guide and small group of no more than 15 people, and set out south along the coast. Admire the views as you pass through the sloping vineyards, orchards, and patchwork farmlands of the Mornington Peninsula, then make your first stop at Arthur's Seat to enjoy the views across Port Phillip Bay.
Get your first taste of the peninsula’s gastronomic delights as you take a tour of the Main Ridge Dairy & Goat Farm, and sample a selection of delicious regional cheeses. Continue to the T'Gallant Winery to sample the winery’s renowned Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir wines, then visit Merricks General Store, where you can sample more fine wines, paired with tasty regional delicacies. Next, indulge your sweet tooth sampling homemade treats at Mornington Peninsula Chocolates, before stopping for a gourmet lunch at one of the Peninsula’s acclaimed restaurants.
After lunch, take a stroll through the strawberry fields at the Sunnyridge Strawberry Farm, enjoy a third wine tasting at the Green Olive Winery & Gardens, and pause to snap photos of the famous Mornington Peninsula Beach Huts, painted in a vibrant array of colors.
After a full day tasting tour of the Mornington Peninsula, return to Melbourne, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel. The fun doesn’t end there, though – your tour also includes entrance to one of Melbourne’s most popular attractions, the Eureka Skydeck, so you can marvel at the views from the highest observation deck in the Southern Hemisphere and brave the glass-floored walkway of The Edge.
