Your private luxury tour with Oceania will begin with a private transfer from your hotel with your own expert guide south east of Melbourne to the Mornington Peninsula.
Your first stop will be at Green Olive at Red Hill where you will have the chance to taste some of the wines, get your hands dirty and cook your own pasta lunch using fresh ingredients straight from the farm. You will taste some of the estate’s wines and enjoy the delicious lunch that you made yourself accompanied by a glass of Kelpie Bridge wine.
From here, you will visit the manicured gardens of Ashcombe Maze and enjoy views of the entire region from Arthur’s seat. With so many experiences that change with the seasons, we can also include a gourmet highlight that gets your taste buds talking. If you have a sweet tooth, you may like to visit the local chocolate factory or pick your own strawberries at the Sunnyridge Strawberry farm.
Alternatively, we can enjoy a cheese platter at the Cheese Factory or try a pot of local beer at the brewery. If you are serious about golf, a round at world-famous sand-belt course Moonah Links might be on the cards or why not an indulgent soak in the natural thermal waters of Peninsula Hot Springs.
On the way home we will drop by new culinary hotspot Mornington and in under an hour, you will be back in Melbourne after a truly delicious day out.
For a really special upgrade, we can organise a seaplane transfer from Williamstown to Sorrento (max 4 passengers).
