Just a 1-hour drive from Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula has long been known as Melbourne’s weekend playground. For international guests, the Peninsula is a perfect addition to a Melbourne visit, offering some of Australia’s best food and wine, golf, adventure, beach and leisure activities.
With a moderate, coastal climate, the Peninsula offers year-round opportunities to explore the region’s wineries or tee off on its world-class golf courses. Over 50 cellar doors and restaurants dot the rolling hills around Jackalope’s own 11-hectare vineyard, while 20 outstanding golf courses, of which three are rated in Australia’s Top 10, have cemented the Peninsula’s position as Australia’s number one golf destination.
Framed by two spectacular coastlines, the Peninsula’s unique array of dramatic surf and sheltered bay beaches, natural hot springs, and national parks contribute to the perfect mix of coastal and country reverie and Jackalope is the perfect base for which to explore the Peninsula.
