Explore the vibrant city of Melbourne and extend beyond the city limits to the Mornington Peninsula to experience the best of a private city to country tour. If you are short on time but want to experience as much as possible, this tour is for you!
You will be met at your accommodation by your local guide for a 9:00am departure. First things first, and in true Melbourne style, you’ll start the day by seeking out the best local coffee together with a quick insight to Melbourne’s culture’s number one obsession! This is the perfect time to share your interests and tastes with your guide so it can be made a feature of your tailored experience.
Learn the history of inner Melbourne and wander the eclectic and vibrant laneways where local culture abounds and Victorian arcades are admired. Such an enchanting introduction to Melbourne and one which will be shown to you by your guide, you may even see some spots not even the local Melbourne population all know about.
A short scenic drive will see you moving on to the Mornington Peninsula – a the very best of coastal living with Australian charm and well-known wine regions. There is something for everyone but sampling the area of its pinot and chardonnay is highly recommended.
Lunch will not disappoint as the region itself is renowned for the ‘farm to plate’ delicacies when offering you a two-course winery lunch with matching wines. Sit back, relax and watch the scenery take centre stage – weather permitting, a picnic can be enjoyed in the privacy of your own vineyard setting.
Continue the afternoon with various wine tastings at local cellar doors, and perhaps even behind-the-scenes opportunities with the winemakers themselves. Wrap up the day with a visit to Moonlit Sanctuary which will have you enjoying some exclusive wildlife encounters with such native animals as koalas, kangaroos and a host of other animals you won’t find anywhere else.
Your tour concludes at 6:00pm upon arrival back to your Melbourne CBD accommodation.
