Area Info for your upcoming Shoreham Holiday on Australia’s magnificent Mornington Peninsula
At the mouth of Western Port bay, with a coastline renowned for its surfing, the landscape in Shoreham transitions from coastal dunes and Moonah forests to bushland with towering gums. Just across the bay sits Phillip Island and if you’re lucky you might just spy Southern Right, Humpback, or Killer Whales during their visit to the bay throughout the Winter migration. When you’re not whale spotting, check out some of the other attractions in the area, like the Marine Sanctuary, Sculpture Park, wineries, and why not treat yourself to Yoga by the Yachts in nearby Flinders.

If you enjoy long walks on the beach, you can get down to the water’s edge via Viewbank street and walk north toward Point Leo surf beach, Deep Rockpool, and Crunchie Point Lookout. Always check the tides before heading off along the shore!
Mushroom Reef Marine Sanctuary and Westhead Lookout: Mushroom Reef has traditionally been an important meeting place and area for fishing and harvesting shellfish for the Bunurong People of the Kulin Nation who are the custodians of the lands and waterways of the peninsula. The reef is an important marine environment, made up of countless micro-habitats home to all sorts of extraordinary species including threatened bird species and Victoria’s beloved Weedy Seadragons. Visit 2 hours either side of low tide to explore as much of the reef as possible and take your snorkelling gear to peer into mysterious worlds. Please bring a camera and take lots of pictures as removing anything from the reef is prohibited to ensure the fragile ecosystem is maintained.

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 Rosebud is the closest place.
Located only 1hr 15mins from Mlebourne, Shoreham is easy to get to by car. Take the M11 (Mornington Peninsula Freeway) toll road. Then take exit 19 for C784 towards Balnarring.
It is possible to get to Shoreham from Melbourne via a train and then a bus. However we recommend that guests have a car during their stay as the best way to explore Shoreham.
