When tourists flock from all over the world to visit Australia they tend to stick to the main cities- Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. I do believe that main cities are the easiest to visit due to the accessibility via public transport, and tend to be the most fun when it comes to cultural activities, nightlife and dining out, however, they don’t showcase the true potential of Australia’s beauty.
I have been to Melbourne a handful of times in my life, but have only recently visited other areas in Victoria. If you’re already planning to visit Melbourne, I highly suggest trying to find the time to fit in a few extra days (if not more) to make your way down to the Mornington Peninsula.
The Mornington Peninsula is only 1.5 hours from Melbourne’s CBD. It is a perfect oasis filled with beautiful ocean, bush walks, vineyards, upmarket wineries, markets and amazing restaurants. You could spend weeks down here and still not have time to see everything!
The pictures on this blog were taken along the beautiful bush walk to Bushrangers Bay which takes roughly 1 hour. Then we continued along and walked another hour to Cape Schank, which takes you across a boardwalk out onto the edge of the world (basically)!
