33 Best Mornington Peninsula Attractions Every Tourist Must See

The Mornington Peninsula forms the eastern side of the Melbourne harbour and is hailed as a holiday destination for national and international visitors alike.

The best Mornington Peninsula Attractions are the beaches. Portsea Back Beach, Sorrento, Rosebud and Frankston Beach are all favourite destinations for sunseekers and those who love the water. For those not inclined to spend the day in the sun and surf, Fort Neapean makes an interesting day out. Or go for a walk on the Cape Schanck Boardwalk for lovely coastline views.

Further away, a day trip from the Mornington Peninsula could start with a ferry ride on the Searoad Ferry across the harbour entrance to Geelong, driving back around the coast to Melbourne city. Or head east to explore the state of Victoria, with coastal drives, perhaps stopping at Phillip Island or maybe driving through to see the fossils at Inverloch.
