Here is a summary of Mornington Information from the STAYZ website:-
Mornington is a suburb of Melbourne, 53 km South East of the CBD, and is known for its shopping village, foreshore, and local beach with a playground, yacht club, and restaurant.
Mornington is one of the coastal Victorian towns where Melbourne’s wealthy come to play. The village tastefully fuses the finer things in life with its natural surrounds, creating a relaxed environment away from the hustle and bustle of the city, only a short one-hour drive from Melbourne. The heart of the Mornington Peninsula, this seaside village boasts a wide array of farm-to-table restaurants where local dishes are coupled with the region’s fine wines, offers weary travellers plenty of spa treatments to help them rejuvenate and features some of the most scenic golf courses in Australia.
Eating and Drinking in Mornington
The region surrounding Mornington is extremely fertile, allowing for produce to thrive and grapes to ripen. In town, visitors can sample fresh, organic dishes at one of the many restaurants, such as the Grand Hotel Bistro, a Mornington icon within a heritage-listed building. On the second Saturday of every month, Mornington Park hosts a farmers’ market, where you can buy baked goods as well as farm fresh produce.
In the Mornington area, there are over 50 vineyards, ten of which are only a short drive from town. The region’s specialties include Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Some of the wineries are family-owned, and some offer tours for the public. Closest to Mornington, Hickinbotham of Dromana features a cellar door, restaurant and weekend entertainment whereas Dromana Estate serves a gourmet menu which changes every month.
Relaxing in Mornington
For many, the Mornington Peninsula is synonymous with spa culture. Walk along Mornington’s main street and it won’t take long to run into clusters of spas. Treatment options abound, whether you’re simply looking for a small pick-me-up or want to spend the whole day being pampered. If you’re up for a bit of a drive, you can head to the Peninsula Hot Springs, well known throughout the country. As the only geothermal hot springs in Victoria with over 20 pools, you can easily spend the day relaxing away. The Springs are split into two sections: the Bath House for families and groups and the Spa Dreaming Centre for total peace and quiet. In addition to spa sessions, you can opt for any number of health and beauty treatments at the hot springs.
Scenic Golf Sessions
Mornington is a golfer’s paradise. Three courses are situated in or close to town, each offering the opportunity to play some serious (or not so serious!) golf, while taking in the area’s natural beauty. There’s the Mornington Golf Club, which boasts an 18-hole course atop the cliffs, affording views of the ocean and distant Melbourne skyline. Mount Martha Golf Course, in the next town over, suits players of all skill levels and also features bay vistas. If you prefer to leave the coastline behind, you can spend the day at Devilbend Golf Club, which is located in a nature reserve.
Another characteristic of Mornington is the area’s keen interest in everything to do with horses, from riding them to betting on them. Travellers may wish to go for a beachfront ride or even spend the day trotting through the region’s wineries. Full or half-day tours with qualified instructors offer both possibilities. Now, if you get your thrills at the races, look up the Mornington Race Club, considered Australia’s best countryside club. Buy tickets to one of the races held over the summer months or book your getaway to coincide with the Mornington Cup in February or Peninsula Cup in October.
Getting to Mornington
The most straightforward way to get to Mornington from Melbourne is by car. As you drive down the Peninsula, don’t forget to look out the window and enjoy those coastal views. Public transport will also get you to Mornington but a number of bus transfers at least doubles the length of your trip.
