With all the wine and wildlife of this route, you’ll have some unwinding to do. The Peninsula Hot Springs on the Mornington Peninsula are further down the road where vitamin-rich mineral waters steam from geothermal heat. If you’re making the journey with a significant other, there’s no more romantic experience, than arriving early in the evening and indulging in the springs when they are illuminated with lantern light.
Mornington Peninsula Dolphins
When daylight hits, it’s time to swim with dolphins. At Sorrento, Polperro Dolphin Swims will brings you out into the waters of Port Phillip Bay where playful bottlenose dolphins swim amongst visitors.
A turn around the bay will bring you back to the bustle of Melbourne but the adventurous traveller can extended the route by hopping on a ferry from Sorrento to Queenscliff and motoring towards the spectacular Great Ocean Road.
