Living on the Mornington Peninsula
The Mornington Peninsula is a wonderful place to live. There are excellent schools and recreational facilities. Not only is access to the Peninsula Health sites easy, but living on the Peninsula offers beautiful beaches and an enviable lifestyle.
The Mornington Peninsula is one of Australia’s newest and most exciting wine regions. Whenever you travel on the Peninsula, you cannot fail to notice the vines of more than 150 vineyards that are an integral part of its rich scenic appeal.
The Mornington Peninsula claims Victoria’s highest concentration of attractions and leisure activities, which provide days of entertainment, even when the sun does not shine.
Victoria’s greatest concentration of quality golf courses can also be found in the region. The sand base of most of them means they are playable all year round. Four of them are rated in Australia’s top 100.
The Mornington Peninsula’s coastal scenery varies enormously. Down the western shores are the Port Phillip Bay beaches. Port Phillip Bay is also home to colonies of seals and pods of bottle-nosed dolphins. Along the foot are the dunes and steep cliffs of the Cape Schanck National Park, while Western Port Bay has a relatively unspoiled foreshore and quiet villages, where the peace contrasts with the bubbling holiday atmosphere on the other side of the Peninsula.
