The Mornington Peninsula is a scenic headland just an hour’s drive southeast of Melbourne. The region is widely known for its sheltered beaches, great surf and fine local produce, such as olives, strawberries and cheese. Visit coastal towns and charming country estates to try regional wines and fresh seafood. Browse antique stores and galleries, wander around historic gardens, learn to scuba dive, go fishing or sea kayaking. For a day of pure relaxation visit the Peninsula Hot Springs or book a treatment at a spa.
The town of Mornington has a busy main street and a scenic pier for fishing and watching the ferries cruise in to Melbourne. Continue south to Dromana to see the cheerful colours of painted beach boxes and the distinctive landmark mountain, Arthur’s Seat. Enjoy family-friendly camping in the town of Rosebud. Sorrento, to the east, features a tranquil bay on its Port Phillip side and a roaring ocean beach opening out to Bass Strait. Find Portsea on the very tip of the peninsula, where upscale beach houses and the historic Portsea Pub look out over surf breaks.

The customer service at The Peppers is incredible. Highly recommend this resort. The bed was incredibly comfy. The furniture in the room however is a little dated. All in all, great resort.
Bed was very good, room was quite dark, private courtyard. Shower head was probably too small in a motel in our opinion.
Damien was a lovely, friendly and helpful host. His hospitality made our stay extra special and enjoyable! Thank you Damien! We hope to come again :)
Lovely spacious bright room with HUGE comfy bed. Very attractive decor. Good sized fridge. Sadly no cook top but there's a BBQ by the pool. Minutes walk to beach. Very friendly and courteous staff. Highly recommend!!
Great location and very clean. Staff were very friendly. Restaurant food was well prepared.
