For over 100 years, the Mornington Peninsula has attracted visitors and home owners, intent on making the most of the beautiful beaches, relaxing vineyard and hinterland regions, surfing and fishing spots, bush walking tracks and tasting the niche local produce, grown with love in the Peninsula’s oceanic climate.
Located south-east of Melbourne, surrounded by over 190km of spectacular coastline that is Port Phillip Bay, Western Port Bay and Bass Strait, the Peninsula originally formed part of the Boonwurrung nation’s territory prior to European settlement.
Extending from Pearcedale / Frankston through to Point Nepean, Portsea, the topography varies from flat near Frankston, to undulating hills in areas such as Main Ridge, Red Hill and Moorooduc. The highest point, Arthurs Seat stands at 305m above sea level and offers amazing views from various locations due to it being unusually close to the coastline.
Hobby farming has attracted many people to the Peninsula, interested in an organic, natural approach to production of meat, fruit and vegetables, in an area that is close to Melbourne CBD, and far enough away to still ‘live’ the rural / coastal lifestyle.
Families are spoilt for choice with many and varied primary / secondary schools, safe & sandy beaches, playgrounds, golf courses, sporting ovals, mazes, fishing spots, shopping centres, restaurants, cafes and community/private Health Services.
The recently opened Peninsula Link brings the Peninsula even closer to suburban Melbourne and the CBD, and makes commuting that much more realistic and achievable for those who choose to make the Peninsula their ‘home’.
