Tour description provided by Viator

Be seduced by the charming Mornington Peninsula, only an hour from Melbourne, and discover wind-swept beaches, vineyards, history, spectacular scenery, good food and more.

On the Mornington Peninsula, a favorite getaway from Melbourne, you could be forgiven for thinking you were in Italy with the Mediterranean climate, olive trees and same boot-shaped geography! Only an hour from Melbourne, the peninsula offers everything from breathtaking beaches and historical national parks to vineyards.

Travel to the tip of the peninsula to visit the seaside town of Portsea, with its famous colored bathing boxes, and Point Nepean, with its remarkable military history and spectacular views of Bass Strait.

Summer schedule: November to April
Visit the Cups Estate Winery and enjoy a gourmet tapas lunch with complimentary wine tasting, and take a walk among the vines. Then visit Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm, where you can try your hand at picking strawberries (subject to weather conditions).

Winter schedule: May to October
Visit the Cups Estate Winery and enjoy a gourmet tapas lunch with complimentary wine tasting followed by a Cellar Door tasting at one of Morningtons Penninsula's small boutique wineries.

Later, Experience Mornington Peninsula Chocolates, induldge in these sumptuous hand made delights in the picturesque township of Flinders. Heighten your senses while you lose yourself at the Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Farm. This traditional hedge maze will have you twisting and turning as you try to navigate your way out.
