Following another sumptuous breakfast at Crown Towers, you once again met your private local guide for a gourmet adventure in regional Victoria.

This time your sights are set on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria’s best kept secret. The Mornington Peninsula is a coastal region laden not only with exceptional wines, but with artisan food producers, market gardens, and distilleries. Similarly, to the Yarra Valley, the Mornington Peninsula is just one hour’s drive out of Melbourne, but the wine is vastly different in these two wines producing regions.

Experience the hidden treasures of the region and spend the day consuming yet more gourmet delights, charming towns and spectacular coastline, all before being returned to the Crown Towers in the late afternoon.
