Best Accommodation on the Mornington Peninsula

Updated 9 months ago


The Mornington Peninsula is wonderfully versatile. There's the beaches, which – depending on what side of the Peninsula you're on – involve either excellent surfing or excellent swimming. Then there's the wine country. The Peninsula's rolling hills and cool climate produce some of Australia's best pinot noir and chardonnay. Not to mention some of the best cellar doors and winery restaurants.

So it can be hard to figure out where to stay – there's a lot to choose from, depending on what kind of holiday you're looking at having. Whether you’re spending a weekend in Red Hill wine country or you’ve having a coastal retreat in Portsea and Sorrento, there's something here for you.
