Western Port Caravan Park

Nearby Attractions

There are hundreds of things to see and do on the Mornington Peninsula with many of them within 30 minutes drive from the park. The peninsula is home to many of Melbourne's best beaches. These range from safe bay beaches like Mornington, Dromana, Rosebud, and Sorrento to the ocean beaches of Sorrento, Rye and Gunnamatta. In addition to these are the swimming and fishing areas of Western Port Bay.

Access to the bay can be as close as the Yaringa Boat Harbour where you can hire boats, arrange fishing charters, store your own boat or just relax and enjoy the view from the restaurant, all just 5 minutes walk away. The nearby bush trails can offer a pleasant walk where you can commune with nature or you can just relax in the tranquil confines of the park. If you wish to venture further a field, here are just some of the attractions the peninsular has to offer. Publications are available from the office giving details of locations and opening times.

In the years since the first commercial plantings occurred in the late 1970's there has been a rapid expansion in viticulture and there are now over 100 vineyards on the Mornington Peninsula. Over 40 of them feature cellar door facilities.


Many peninsula golf courses seem to share a common theme - spectacular views to make that good walk great. There are 7 courses on the peninsular to choose from including Bembridge 9 hole course only 5 minutes away.
