Mount Martha Accommodation


Area Info for your upcoming Mount Martha Holiday on Australia’s magnificent Mornington Peninsula


Mount Martha is on the cusp of the Mornington Peninsula, where urban Mornington transforms into wide open spaces, luxurious homes, and country seaside charm. Although nestled nice and close to the shopping hub of Mornington and Melbourne beyond, Mount Martha itself has only a small commercial centre which means the entire area has retained a peaceful bearing as the bushland and coastline of the region have not been over development. Truly the best of both worlds! From rock pools to retail therapy, hidden walking tracks to jaw dropping beaches, Mount Martha is a must.

How do you get to Mount Martha?


Arriving at Airport:


It is possible to hire a car from either Tullamarine or Avalon Airport. Don’t forget to book ahead of time! We recommend Kangaroo Rentals. It is also possible to hire a car once you get to the Peninsula: Avis Car Hire in Mornington is the closest place.


Quickest Route by Car:


Mount Martha is a breeze to get to by car from Melbourne. The quickest way (approx 1 hour) is to take the M11 (Mornington Peninsula Freeway) and then take exit 19 towards Balnarring.


Scenic Route by Car:


You can also take a scenic route out of Melbourne along the bay on State Route 33, then exit onto State Route 3 (Nepean Highway). From the Nepean Highway, if you turn right onto Tyabb Rd (C782) which turns into Main St, you will reach the Esplanade onto which you turn left to reach Mount Martha. The Esplanade is a famously beautiful drive along steep coastline, sparkling water, and beautiful homes perched in the surrounding bushland.


Taxis and Ubers:


It is possible to catch a taxi from Melbourne to Mount Martha but they are less available for getting around the peninsula than they are in the city. We recommend having use of a car when visiting Mount Martha.
