Holidays on the Mornington Peninsula

The Mornington Peninsula, only an hours drive outside of Melbourne, is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Victoria - and you’ll soon discover why. With its secluded beaches, quaint seaside villages and exceptional wineries, it has all the elements for the perfect holiday getaway.

Relax on the beaches of Rosebud and Dromana or visit the villages of Sorrento and Portsea for a delicious lunch. Why not discover the fascinating history of Point Nepean, the most westerly point of the Mornington Peninsula, where the bay meets the ocean. Or for some spectacular ocean vistas visit Arthurs Seat. And no visit to Mornington is complete without visiting one of the many wineries or local produce shops on offer. 

What are the most popular destinations on the Mornington Peninsula?

The towns of Sorrento and Portsea are among the most popular spots on the Mornington Peninsula. But there are other quieter towns that are definitely worth visiting. Read on for details of some of the most popular Mornington Peninsula holiday destinations.


Sorrento is the perfect place to live the good life. Its imposing limestone buildings add a timeless beauty, while the stunning water views and buzzing galleries and boutiques provide an ideal backdrop for an afternoon of shopping. Get inspired by Sorrento's diverse range of clothing, furniture, homewares, artworks, jewellery and maritime keepsakes, all housed in boutique shopfronts that are steeped in heritage. Whether you're swimming alongside dolphins or dining by the water at sunset, Sorrento promises a memorable stay.


Portsea is a paradise for anyone who loves the ocean. Glimpse the lifestyles of the rich and famous at Portsea's millionaire mansions and watch pristine Port Phillip Bay give way to some of the most beautiful ocean beaches. There's no better place to enjoy aquatic activities like scuba diving, sea kayaking and even local surfing and iron-men competitions. Portsea offers a unique opportunity to enjoy safe bay beaches one minute and feel the rush of an ocean beachfront the next. After a memorable day out on the water, visitors can bask in the sunset atmosphere at the Portsea Pub and have a relaxed evening amongst friends on its lush green lawns.

Every wine or olive lover will find something magical here; envision yourself winding up and down the hillsides, dotted with endless vines and olive groves. Don't forget to sample Red Hill Cheeses' cheese platter, Red Hill Brewery's delightful drinks and Red Hill Bakery's unique wine bread.
