There’s much more to southern Australia than the popular city of Melbourne. One particularly beautiful place is the Mornington Peninsula and the area of Red Hill South. This peninsula is home to scenic hills and boutique wineries that are perfect for visitors looking to experience the more natural side of the country. This quiet, picturesque peninsula is also a great place to look for holiday rentals. Relax in the serene town of Red Hill South while still being within easy distance of Melbourne’s many attractions.

Why Red Hill South?

Red Hill South is a rural town in the center of the Mornington Peninsula, about an hour outside of Melbourne. Travelers choose Red Hill South accommodation for close proximity to boutique wineries, annual events and festivals, and a general relaxed vibe with the beautiful backdrop of the Western Port Bay. Those travellers who are interested in planning a food and wine getaway will be especially drawn to Red Hill South, with its surrounding orchards, berry farms, and vineyards.

What to See and Do?

Red Hill South is often seen as a launching point for exploring the Mornington Peninsula. There are many beautiful coastal towns here, including Dromana and Balnarring. These are lovely areas for a quiet day on the beach including swimming, picnics, or boating. The entire coastline of this peninsula has beautiful places to visit including the Mornington Peninsula National Park and St Andrews Beach.

Not all of the best sights are on the coast, however. In the area surrounding Red Hill South and Red Hill there are many vineyards with gardens and tasting rooms. In addition, fun places to visit include Red Hill Brewery, the only microbrewery on the peninsula, and Red Hill Cheese which produces distinct regional cheeses. To burn off the calories from wine tastings, visitors might want to hit the hiking trails in Arthurs Seat State Park, home to sweeping views.

The laid back vibe of the peninsula encourages a relaxed trip. Beyond the wineries, towns are full of small galleries and cafes. Travellers looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city will enjoy the undeveloped, rural feel of the Mornington Peninsula.

Top Attractions

In addition to the wineries, local events and entertainment are another big reason to choose Red Hill South holiday rentals. Some of the top events in the region include the Art Red Hill event, the premiere art show on the peninsula, the Red Hill Country Music Festival and events featuring local produce and wines.

A daytrip to Melbourne is an easy journey from Mornington Peninsula accommodation. If you’re planning a trip to Melbourne, focus in on a couple sights such as Federation Square, the Melbourne Aquarium, and the Melbourne Observation Deck.

Why Rentals?

Red Hill South holiday rentals provide a relaxed, spacious retreat during your trip to southern Australia. Here many rentals are located down quiet country lanes and are loaded with amenities from game rooms to huge decks with barbeques to cozy fireplaces. Travellers looking for a quiet escape will love the rural feel of these holiday rentals with their fantastic views and close proximity to local vineyards.

The house itself was large, spacious and comfortable - it felt like a home away from home, with all the things you could possibly need for a relaxing stay. The gardens, dam and the pool also added to the spaces you could explore and enjoy. And the view - no photos can do it justice! It was lovely to just sit on the verandah and soak it all in! Thanks Olaf, we'll be back!
