This region is blessed with wonderland of beaches, wineries and golf courses. Only an hour from Melbourne and you find yourself at the beginning of numerous sandy swimming and surf beaches, plus the world renown rolling sandy hills just made for championship links golf courses, 19 of them to be exact. The wineries are second to none with my preferred vinyard for a lunch is Polperro and Montalto. There are numerous seaside towns with great sandy beaches such as Dromana, Mornington, Mount Matha, Rosebud, Rye, Sorrento, Portsea and the surfing back beaches of Portsea, Gunnamatta, Point Leo and Balnarring, most with cafes and fine dining. For the nature lovers there are wonderful walks along beaches, sand dunes and Point Nepean at the end tip of the Peninsula. If you want a rest from the wineries check out the English/Irish Pig and Wistle Hotel. The grounds are beautiful and the view is to die for.A ferry leaves Sorrento and takes you on an exciting trip across Port Phillip Bay to Queenscliff (the Bellarine Peninsula).This is a wonderful day trip or stay at Queenscliff and take the ferry back the next day.Mornington Peninsula attractions include, the Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, hedge maze and cottage gardens.
