Explore Spring happenings on the Mornington Peninsula

The Mornington Peninsula is a beautiful spot to visit throughout the year, but no time is more vibrant than the springtime. With a range of sandy beaches to relax on, adventurous walking trails to hike and indulgent wineries to explore, your weekends will be filled with fun memories. The Mornington Peninsula is Melbourne’s best wellness destination, so read on to check out new wellness offerings in the area.

Winery tastings

The cool climate of the Mornington Peninsula lends itself to perfect wine-growing conditions. With a large variety of wineries specialising in reds, whites, sparkling and everything in-between, you are spoiled for choice for wineries. Some of our favourites are Main Ridge Estate, Polperro Winery, Painga Estate, and Dromana Estate Winery. Spring is a prime time to visit one of the Peninsula’s many wineries, and offers a great opportunity to stock up on some of your favourites before the holiday season kicks in!

Hot springs, bathing and spa experiences

Bathing, spa and hot spring culture is rapidly growing in popularity in Australia, and the springtime is arguably the best time to visit these luxurious spa destinations. The Peninsula is home to many hot spring and spa experiences, including the Alba Thermal Springs, Aurora Spa and Bathhouse and the world-renowned Peninsula Hot Springs. Featuring a number of hot tubs and spa experiences, Turkish baths, saunas, plunge pools, reflexology walks and an exquisite hilltop bath with rolling views overlooking the peninsula, the Peninsula Hot Springs has something for everyone. There are a number of events on this month, including Soakember, which celebrates the health benefits of hot springs, hydrothermal therapies, and nature-based wellness activities. Every Sunday afternoon features the Hot Springs’ “Sunday Sessions” in the Bath House Café. Relax with a cheeky beer or wine and listen to the incredible live music from some of the Mornington Peninsula’s most talented musicians.

Beautiful coastal walks

Due to its rugged, coastal terrain, the Mornington Peninsula features a varied range of walks and hikes, ranging from flat and gentle to a bit more challenging. There are a range of walks to choose from at The Briars, both within the Wildlife Sanctuary and around the property. If a challenging walk with the chance to spot local wildlife is your thing, The Briars Wildlife Sanctuary is a great option. Full of native birds (including an emu!), wallabies and lizardy friends, this walk is different every time you take it. Another great peninsula walking option is the Bay Trail, stretching from Dromana to Sorrento. Following the foreshore for 17kms, this picturesque walk takes you through some beautiful sections of the peninsula, with plenty of cafe and refreshment options along the way.

There is so much to do down on the Mornington Peninsula, so take a day trip and get exploring. You never know what you’ll find!
