Description

The Mornington Peninsula, well-known as 'Melbourne's playground', offers a feast of natural attractions on the doorsteps of the city. Chief amongst these are the parks and beaches, the latter of which come in two distinct flavours: the calmer bay beaches and the wilder, more rugged, ocean beaches. Add in a world-renowned wine region, some beautiful walks and some fascinating historical attractions and it's easy to see why the peninsula attracts millions of visitors every year. This new guide is Illustrated throughout with superb full-colour photography, and has detailed accompanying navigational maps. Every destination is described and detailed to ensure minimum time is wasted and maximum time spent enjoying the sights and things to do. Information on every destination includes: opening times, address, contact details, UBD map reference, entry fees, parking availability, public transport links, information on cafes, shops and accessibility for wheelchairs.show more
