From here, enjoy a delicious bakery cafe lunch with a drink in a rustic and charming setting at local favorite Flinders Bakehouse Cafe. On your way from Flinders visit the lookout where you’ll get panoramic views of Bass Strait and a scenic drive through Flinders Golf Course with breathtaking ocean views.
Depart the scenic coast and head inland to Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm, which produces berries that are enjoyed throughout Australia. Pick ripe, juicy berries straight from the fields (during the summer season), and browse fruit-flavored products like strawberry liquor, cider, jam and honey.
You also have the choice to upgrade your day-trip to include the Peninsula Hot Springs Bath House where you will have access to over 20 pools.
Finally, soak up panoramic views of Port Phillip Bay from Arthur’s Seat lookout before the return drive to Melbourne.

Driver/guide excellent. Added a change to return journey because of traffic delays and got to come back via beach suburbs which was much better than on highway. Visit to chocolate makers and cider production was great. Lots of yummy samples to try on the whole trip.

This daytrip was a definite highlight. We had a great commentary on the way down to Mornington Peninsula and a general tour around Mornington, driving through some of the quaint little towns and stopping at SCHNAPPER POINT, which was absolutely beautiful. We saw the Bathing boxes on the beach.
We chose the option to visit the HOT SPRINGS. Our stay was for about 2.5 hours and we enjoyed every minute. There are so many hot springs to visit and a sauna if time permits. Trying to experience all of them in the time was a challenge but so much fun and luxurious to boot!!!
We then visited SUNNY RIDGE STRAWBERRY FARM. Picking our own strawberries was heaps of fun and gettint to eat them, once washed, was areal treat. They were delicious. We also sampled and purchased some of the wine there. We also sampled and purchased some relishes. I could have spent a lot more time there. They had a lovely cafe and this was the best shop we visited,while in Melbourne,
for local qauint and tasty gifts.
We also visited ARTHURS SEAT which gave us panoramic views over the bay.
This wet our appetite for the area and next time we visit Melbourne we will try and stay longer in the Mornington area. FABULOUS TOUR.

This was a great trip led by driver/knowledgeable guide Adrian. We were part of a small group attending that day and Adrian was flexible in allowing us to stay longer at popular stops if we wished. A highlight was the lunch at a welcoming little cafe in Hastings that featured huge sandwiches on fresh bread and excellent fillings. The cider brewery and strawberry farm were also popular.The tour would suit first time visitors to the Peninsula, as we covered a lot of ground over the ten hour day.

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!

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.

I had a wonderful day on this tour. The bus driver Darryl was very informative. The meal at Ashcombe Maze was good.

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.

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.
