Discover why the Mornington Peninsula is a favorite day-tripping destination for Melbournians. After morning pickup at your Melbourne hotel, relax in an air-conditioned minivan on the 1.5-hour drive to your first stop.
Enjoy a relaxing soak in the Peninsula Hot Springs, where mineral-rich waters flow from natural springs below ground into a variety of pools surrounded by tranquil landscaping. You’ll have 3 hours of leisure time to unwind at amenities such as a hydrotherapy pool, thermal stream gully, reflexology walk and sauna. Be sure to bring your swimsuit and a towel.
Next, satisfy your taste buds with a delicious lunch at a local eatery followed by a wine tasting. In the afternoon, connect with your inner child at the Enchanted Adventure Garden, featuring Australia’s largest tube slide park and elaborate hedge mazes. Try to find your way out of the labyrinths, and stroll among whimsical gardens.
During the summer season (November through April), you’ll continue on to Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm to pick juicy, ripe berries straight from the field and sample a variety of fruit-flavored products. During the winter, pop in at a Mornington Peninsula winery to sample a variety of wines.
Relax on the return drive to Melbourne, where you’ll be dropped off back at your original departure point.
