Tour Highlights

A morning discovering the secrets of Melbourne is the perfect prelude to an afternoon of indulgence on the Mornington Peninsula. Only a 60-minute drive from the city, the idyllic haven of the Peninsula uncovers a world where vineyards trail down undulating hills to meet pristine beaches and the clear blue sea.

Begin your morning in Melbourne taking in the sights of Flinders Street Station, Federation Square and the grand Victorian civic buildings of Spring Street then set off on foot to meander through Melbourne’s labyrinth of laneways and arcades. Browse the boutiques of Block and Royal Arcades, admire Hosier Lane’s urban art scene or simply take a moment to soak up the Continental atmosphere of Centre Place.

Grab a coffee from one Melbourne’s trendy cafes or markets before departing the bustle of the city for the peaceful hills of Mornington Peninsula – Melbourne’s summertime playground.  Home to more than fifty boutique wineries, the regions is renowned for producing quality pinot noir, chardonnay and shiraz.  Visit one of the most awarded wineries for a structured tasting before settling in for a gourmet lunch at esteemed Pt. Leo or Port Phillip Estates.

Following lunch, your guide’s intimate knowledge of the region puts you in the perfect position to explore breezy seaside villages, discover gourmet delights in the Red Hill hinterland, continue to sample boutique wines or perhaps see Australian wildlife at Moonlit Sanctuary – the choice is yours.
