The Mornington Peninsula packs a lot into a compact area that’s under two hours from Melbourne. Here you can experience everything from coastal culture, wartime history, fertile plains and peninsulas to food and wine that’s world-class.
There are four distinct sections to this 100km continuous circuit track. Start with the Two Bays Track, which crosses the widest section of the Mornington Peninsula leading to its highest point at Arthur’s Seat. A gentle descent through inland forest leads to the serene Bushranger Bay where you can expect to see kangaroos and even spot a koala.
The coastal hike section features cliff-top walks with dramatic views, rugged beach stretches, coastal forest and Cape Schanck Lightstation on the southernmost tip of the Peninsula. Cape Schanck is known to have some of the cleanest air around, leading CSIRO scientists to bottle it, after gale-force winds blow uncontaminated air directly from the Antarctic.
The Point Nepean section includes fascinating wartime relics including historic forts. You can explore the tunnels of these forts for a first-hand glimpse of what life would have been like for the thousands of soldiers based here during wartime.
Watch these Mornington Peninsula walks being featured on an episode of Eat Play and Stay in 2015.
You might like to incorporate in a rest day at the Cape Schanck area or at Sorrento where you can take the ferry across to historic Queenscliff for the day or visit the hot springs or the wineries.
