Holiday Accommodation in McCrae, Mornington Peninsula, Australia

Named after an early settler, Andrew McCrae, who made his way to the area in the late 1800’s, the small seaside town of McCrae, is just a short distance outside of Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula. A popular town for sun seekers, who flock to the coast to surf, swim and relax, these days there is plenty of holiday accommodation, holiday rentals, self catering apartments and holiday villas for holiday makers to choose from. Known far and wide for the prominent historical landmark, the Eastern Lighthouse (McCrae Lighthouse), McCrae continues to bring wary visitors from the city to unwind and relax in its inviting surroundings.

Things to See and Do

McCrae Homestead and Gallery

Designed by the early settler’s wife, Georgina McCrae in 1844, this historic homestead is a testament to the life and times of Andrew and Georgina McCrae – the Scottish migrants who made their way to the area in the mid 19th century and settled here, in what was then called Dromana. Named after Andrew McCrae, the town changed its name in 1934. Full of the original furniture and memorabilia, the homestead continues to be a fascinating look into the past.

Golf

With so many golf courses to choose from you could literally book yourself a Golf Estate Crawl through the peninsula, booking your holiday accommodation on the golf course itself. Rolling greens, world class facilities, day spas, restaurants, 5 star accommodations and some of the best golfing scenery in the world means you will have something to do on every day of your golfing holiday.

McCrae Lighthouse

Built in 1874, the light house was built completely out of steel and is the tallest on mainland Victoria, scraping the sky at a whopping 34 meters high. With a massive range of more than 13 nautical miles, the lighthouse was originally built in 1854 and entirely out of timber, but was eventually dismantled piece by piece and transported to Arthurs Seat to be used as a lookout. The lighthouse is one of 2 remaining structures like it to be found in Australia, and is on the Historic Buildings Register.

Sailing & Fishing

Charter a sail boat or book a fishing tour with some of the private charters in McCrae to experience life on the open sea and all the stunning marine life that surrounds you. Some charters also take bookings for dolphin swimming, diving, snorkeling tours and overnight yacht charters. Look out for all the information, costs and contact details that will be available in your holiday accommodation.

Climate

The moderate climate of the Mornington Peninsula is much milder than inland closer to Melbourne. With the gentle sea breeze keeping the seasonal temperatures pleasant all year round, no matter when you decide to visit, you will be able to enjoy all that McCrae has to offer. Mild winters and warm summers mean that it may get a little chilly at night with the evening winter temperatures averaging about 8 C, and rising to about 18 during the day. Summer time averages can go up to 30 C but average at around 26 C and drop down to about 22 C in the evening.

Getting there from the UK

The best way to get to your holiday home on the seaside would be to take a direct flight into the city of Melbourne, Victoria. Major airlines around the world, including London, Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester to name a few, have daily flights into the Australian city. Pick up your rental car and head on straight down the scenic 90 minute route out of the busy city and into coastal paradise, if you get there early enough, you will be able to sit out on the deck of your holiday villa with a sundowner before dinner.

Absolutely magical!

5 of 5
What an amazing place to stay if you want luxury, ocean views and pure relaxation. As you enter the house you are drawn towards the uninterrupted views of Port Phillip Bay from the main entertaining area comprising of an open plan formal sitting room, dining area and well-appointed kitchen. The kitchen has every utensil you may need, (even bakingware just in case you want to make a cake!) and plenty of dishes, glasses and plastic containers. We spent two nights of pure bliss being spoilt by the picture postcard views across Port Phillip Bay, watching ferries and ships sail by and the sun set from the balcony. You will not want to leave the house, even if the weather is gloomy you can just sit back relax and enjoy the panoramic views from the living area, your main bedroom or the comfort of the studio - the choice is yours. There are also books and board games, not to forget binoculars too where you can spot various wildlife up close - the owner has truly thought of everything. My expectations for an enjoyable holiday stay were definitely met and exceeded by Above it All. This is a wonderful place to stay in McCrae.
