Choose holiday accommodation in Dromana, on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria

In the valley between two peaks on the Mornington Peninsula, south of Melbourne, lies Dromana, a picturesque and bustling seaside resort. Popular with families keen on its safe beaches and expansive sandbars, Dromana is also surrounded by more than 20 vineyards, several of which operate an open cellar door for visitors.

The Mornington Peninsula is considered Melbourne’s playground and is affectionately known to the city’s residents as “the Peninsula”. Dromana is one of many resorts on the Peninsula that attracts local and international visitors. Its wide foreshore is a particular favourite for campers and there is a fantastic selection of holiday rentals and accommodation in Dromana to suit all budgets and tastes.

A shore thing

Dromana is situated on the western coastline of the Mornington Peninsula in a valley dominated by the twin peaks of Arthurs Seat and Mount Martha. Originally settled in the 1850s as farming land, the town was also a stopping-off point for the steamers that plied their way around Port Philip Bay and its pier remains a visitor attraction. Today Dromana is a favourite destination for holidaymakers and day-trippers.

Since the 1940s, its wide foreshore – with walking tracks, shelters and picnic areas – has been a very popular camping area, and the town can also boast an enviable selection of holiday rentals such as self-contained accommodation, apartments and houses.

Nestled in a valley, Dromana’s housing development has grown to encompass the hillsides that reach to Arthurs Seat and the homes there enjoy spectacular views across Port Philip Bay. For even more spectacular views, the summit of Arthurs Seat itself – more than 300m above sea level – can’t be beaten and on a clear day (or night), visitors will see the Peninsula in all its glory right across to Melbourne. A walk to the peak may be beyond some people but fear not, a 72-seat chairlift will whisk the less able to the summit’s viewing platform in a matter of minutes.

Like many of Dromana’s visitor attractions, Heronswood also boasts enviable views of Port Philip Bay. This historic house dates back to 1871 and both the house and gardens, sitting on an elevated position on Latrobe Parade, are open to the public. Run by the Diggers Club, Australia’s largest garden club, Heronswood is home to many heritage vegetables and blooms, and visitors can sample the homegrown produce.

Raise a glass

The Mornington Peninsula is renowned for its wine-growing and there are more than 20 wineries surrounding Dromana and its neighbouring town of Tuerong. Among the best known as Dromana Estate, Crittenden Estate with its acclaimed Stillwater restaurant and Hickinbotham of Dromana, one of the region’s oldest winemakers. Don’t miss the chance to sample the local produce at the cellar doors.

One of the oldest homesteads in the state of Victoria is the McCrae homestead, just a short drive from Dromana. Built in 1844, it remains a stirring monument to the earlier pioneering days of this vibrant area and the two museums that are part of the homestead tell a story of both a family and a nation.

Dromana is also known as the Peninsula’s “Cups” area with many golf courses that will appeal to golfers of all ability. Holidaymakers can enjoy a round on one of these picturesque courses before dining out at some of the gourmet restaurants in the town, then settling back with a nightcap of the local wine at their holiday homes.

Hit the beach

Summers offer wonderfully warm days in Dromana with average temperatures of 25°C. The town, like the rest of the Mornington Peninsula, has a temperate maritime climate, which means it avoids extremes of hot and cold. While Dromana isn’t as hot as Melbourne during the warmer months, it does enjoy a milder winter than the city with average daily temperatures of 16°C. Holidaymakers unused to the fierce Australian sun should take special care and make sure they are well covered by sunscreen, and it’s a great idea to keep a plentiful supply of sun block at your holiday accommodation in Dromana.

Getting there

Holidaymakers travelling from the UK to the state of Victoria will arrive at Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport. There are direct flights from London Heathrow from major carriers such as Qantas, Emirates and BA. Airport bus connections will take travellers to the main Peninsula town of Frankston with onward local bus services to Dromana and your holiday rentals. Or why not rent a car at the airport and enjoy the freedom to find your own way around the exciting attractions that the Peninsula has to offer?

Excellent place for beach getaway

5 of 5
We loved our stay at this great beach house. Everything was perfect and the back yard was a great area for the whole family and the kids loved the trampoline. The beach was a short stroll down the street and shops just around the corner. Thanks Katrina for the early check in and late checkout, we thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
