"Mornington Peninsula" Day Trip to Mornington Penisula Tip by phillarkins

To the south east of melbourne is the mornington peninsula. This is my home town. It is about an hour and half drive from city center. Visit towns like portsea, sorrento, dromana, mt martha, flinders or somers. You are able to surf at portsea and gunnamatta. You can also do horse riding along the beach. There are a number of wineries some amazing restaurants as well. There is some great fishing, safe family beaches especially mt martha. There is a surprising amount of wildlife koalas, kangaroos, seals and the occasional whale.
