If time is of the essence, a guided tour can be the perfect addition, transforming your holiday from uneventful to unforgettable. Let the locals lead the way to foodies' favourite haunts, heritage sites and well into the great outdoors. Tours aren't just restricted to the bitumen either – why not go a different way by horseback, kayak, boat or bicycle?
Coastal cruising on the open road
Make your holiday your own by booking a hire car and leave the train timetables back at the station. Having your own set of wheels means you can take your time and truly get to know the charismatic collection of villages that make up the Mornington Peninsula.
