The Mornington Peninsula & Hot Springs Tour
Hike rugged coastlines, marvel at wild oceans, and unwind in magical hot springs on the Mornington Peninsula.
Time to hit the highway and make our way to the idyllic Mornington Peninsula. Our first stop is the summit of Arthur’s Seat where we’ll share panoramic ocean views and a bite of morning tea. This is just a taste of things to come. We move onto Bushrangers Bay for a 10km hike featuring unreal coastal scenery, rocky bays, wild oceans and one picturesque lighthouse. Spot local kangaroos and listen to the songs of native birds as we wander along the undulating path. After we return from our hike, we will recharge with a beautiful plant powered lunch prepared by our chef. Peninsula Hot Springs is our final destination where we spend a couple of hours soaking in the natural hot pools. It’s the perfect way to end a great date with nature!
