The Location

Welcome to the Mornington Peninsula Victoria.

The Mornington Peninsula has a long history of being a favourite holiday destination.  It is known for its seaside towns and villages, high quality wineries and eateries, stunning beaches as well as Port Phillip and Western Port Bays.  The Mornington Peninsula also has a reputation for its gourmet food and this starts at the source. There are market gardens and small family farms selling seasonal produce year-round, the piers with fresh seafood, the artisan cheese makers, olive groves and chocolatiers.  Free range chooks are laying your breakfast eggs right now while the bees are making heavenly honey for your locally baked bread.  Most local eateries base their menus on regional produce.  This changes seasonally depending on what is available in the region at the time.
Tourism is a major industry on the Mornington Peninsula and there are quaint coffee shops and tourist destinations to visit.  These include some iconic wineries, distillery and breweries, local markets as well as marine and ecotourism activities.  Check out the Visit Mornington Peninsula website for plentiful information on things to do during your stay on the Mornington Peninsula during National Rally week - see www.visitmorningtonpeninsula.org
Mornington Peninsula is an easy step off point for other great tourism adventures throughout Victoria.  These include Phillip Island, the Bellarine Peninsula and the Great Ocean Road. You can also explore beautiful South Gippsland, Wilsons Promontory National Park and further on to the Gippsland Lakes region.  All are within easy riding distance from Mornington Peninsula and we encourage members to consider extending their visit by adding these destinations to their National Rally itinerary.
