Welcome to Mornington Peninsula & Phillip Island
A string of village communities curling around the southeastern flank of Port Phillip Bay to Western Port Bay, the Mornington Peninsula (traditionally Bunurong country) is a favourite summer holiday patch for beach-loving Melburnians. At the tip of the peninsula, a world of rugged ocean surf beaches, sublime links golf courses and coastal bushwalks opens up. Away from the coast, the peninsula’s interior is a wine- and food-lover’s paradise, with an ever-growing number of cellar doors and some of Victoria’s finest restaurants. Away to the east, it’s a short ferry ride to wild and isolated French Island and then on to Phillip Island, one of Victoria's premier tourist attractions. Apart from the famous nightly parade of little penguins, Phillip Island is blessed with wonderful surf beaches, plenty of wildlife and family-friendly activities galore.
