    Dromana! It holds a special place in my heart, I’ve been vacationing there since childhood. I’ve got endless lovely warm snuggly feelings and good vibes from Dromana, never fails to make me feel relaxed and safe. Plus it’s close to Rosebud and Sorrento (and drive in movies, come on!), it’s beach (safety beach) is absolutely beautiful and has cute little shops/restaurants/cafes.

    I love T’Gallant; lovely wines, especially their pinot gris / grigio, and those wood-fired pizzas are just so, so good.

    Plus it’s a lovely setting.

    Oh this is awesome!!!

    Ok, my favourite place is The Giddy Bullfrog Gallery. When my mum was still alive we would go to our holiday house in Somers for long, long summer holidays. Apart from spending hours on end at the beach we would also visit Flinders and Red Hill very regularly. The Giddy Bullfrog was one of our favourite haunts.

    At The Giddy Bullfrog mum used to buy local ceramic pieces, beautiful silk scarves and paintings. My brother and I would sit in the cafe and stuff our faces with sausage rolls drowning in tomato sauce then get milk drunk on iced chocolates. Mum and dad bought one of their first dining sets from The Giddy Bullfrog, it was used at mum’s wake.

    One of my favourite photos of my darling mother shows her and my aunty out the front of The Giddy Bullfrog pretending to be tea cups. Clearly I inherited my crazy from her.

    These were happy times.

    It’s been a long, long time between sausage rolls, ceramics and my mum’s antics. The whole of the Mornington Peninsula holds a very, very special place in my heart. The Giddy Bullfrog though would have to be one of the most special.

    I had a gorgeous time in Rye many years ago. It was serene, beautiful, relaxed… I remember taking a ferry trip with my then-boyfriend, picking mussels at the beach, staying at a quaint little cottage. Great memories!

    I adore Pier 10 winery. It’s very unassuming but the setting is lovely. The menu in the restaurant in not simple but delicious, the view is gorgeous and wines delicious.

    In my opinion a real hidden gem.

    :)

    My favourite place @ Mornington is the Peninsula Hot Springs-> it is warm, pretty and great place to go as individual, couple or with your family. My boyfriend (now husband) brought me there for my 25th Birthday a few years back and it was one of the best day of my life (aside from my wedding day). We hang out by the hot springs, have coffee and cake in the cafe and end the day with a nice pub meal in the Mornington town centre. Even now I can still smell the whole day clearly. Memories that lasts for lifetime.

    My favourite place to visit is somewhere that I can relax and enjoy the natural beauties of the Mornington Peninsula area and of course be able to eat some beautiful food. Red Hill Estate would be one of those places. I can stay in the lodges and look out onto the amazing vineyards with their lush green folage contrasting with the clear blue waters of the port, with the brown Earthy soil completing this natural painting. Wine tasting and lunch would dominate the sunshine hours of the day. As the sun was starting to set, I would soak myself in the spa for a while, and leisurely walk the 500 metres to Max’s restaurant and dine on fresh seafood and beautifully cooked meat. Of course I would have dessert and want the tasting platter. With my belly full, I would stroll back to the lodge to sit on the deck to watch the moon shine it’s terrestrial light. A most perfect day.

    Start the “Day of Lavender” with a pleasant meal at the Ashcombe Cafe with 100percent rating on Urbanspoon! Then off to the Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens – the oldest and largest maze in Australia.

    Everything Lavender – taste, smell, see, touch, listen to and fell lavender – J’aime ma vie! =)

    My favourite place to visit is the Red Hill Markets… I came back laden after my last visit with honey, jams, ciders, donuts, pastas…. and it was all delicious!

    Nothing beat the conventional Arthurs Seat in Mornington. That is the one place I will bring all my overseas visitor whenever they come to Melbourne. The spectacular view, the fresh air, the adventurous GO Ape tree top adventure and the amazing Maze. It recharges my soul! I still remember my first trip up the Arthurs Seat chairlift, an historic icon of Melbourne.. Now gone.. oh well , at least I am grateful to have experience the ride.

    Noel’s Gallery – a wonderful restaurant / art gallery, that has breathtaking views over nearby wineries from the al fresco dining area, combined with delicious food, very helpful staff, beautiful fine art that is showcased in a thoughtful way, a wonderful fireplace if you wish to sit inside during the cooler months, and live entertainment. What more could you ask for!

  13. jo - June 6, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    fave place- Georges b and b culinary school main ridge.

    You can be taught how to create gourmet food with local produce drink local wines, or choose a high tea.

    My favourite winery on the Mornington Peninsula is Montalto… the food & wine are fantastic, the view of the rolling hills from the restaurant, and don’t get me started on their olive oil~~

  15. Catherine - June 7, 2011 at 12:08 pm

    My favourite place to visit would be Montalto Vineyard. You can head to the cellar door before lunch and taste the wines and then eat to your heart’s content in the restaurant or at the outside cafe, for something more casual. The service at Montalto is just fantastic and the food and wine is something that you won’t forget – I still haven’t since my first visit in 2008! To walk off the impending food coma, the property is spotted with their Sculpture collection, featuring numer0us Australian artists, which you can explore for ages. It really is a beautiful place with so much more to offer than just food or wine. It also doesn’t hurt that the Peninsula Hot Springs is not too far for away for a relaxing dip either. I love revisiting this region :)

    Mornington Peninsula is always my favorite destination for weekend gateway, so many beautiful places to visit and outdoor activities to do. You will never get enough of them! The most favorite place is The Cape Schanck Lighthouse, a fascinating piece of Victoria’s history. We took a walk to the tip of Cape Schanck and saw Pulpit Rock and spectacular basalt cliffs. The scenery is just breathtaking. Perfect place to visit on summer time, you will see a perfect blue sky and ocean. Check it out my photos http://instagr.am/p/B2RDZ/ and http://instagr.am/p/B2bHf/
    If you have plenty of time, don’t forget to follow the scenic route along the boardwalk to the famous Cape Schanck and its lighthouse. It’s jus WOW! I will never forget about that.

    I love just heading to Mornington Peninsula for a weekend getaway! My favourite is the Peninsula Hot Springs especially during Spring or Autumn! Just spending the day with the mr and relaxing not thinking about anything else is a dream!

  19. Agnes - June 10, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    My favourite place to visit (so far) is Montalto because we had the most romaaaaaaaaaantical picnic there to celebrate one of our anniversaries. And I most want to visit the hot springs, because after experiencing onsen, I want – no NEED – to soak in hot water again (and a bath isn’t the same… hard to break the habit of no baths after so many years of drought…)
