Melbourne City & Mornington Peninsula Wineries - Private Day Tour

See the sights of Melbourne City and explore the Mornington Peninsula in one day. In the morning, you’ll enjoy our Melbourne City Tour, experiencing the highlights and arty laneways of our marvellous city. Later, travel approximately one hour to the Mornington Peninsula for an amazing lunch and the opportunity to visit the region’s wineries or an animal sanctuary for up-close wildlife experiences.

We love showcasing our city and will allow you to experience it like a local Melbournian. Walk some of the famous laneways and visit the cafes, taking in the coffee aromas amid bustling traders and shoppers. We’ll show you the city’s significant landmarks and buildings, and share the rich history that has made Melbourne the most liveable city in the world for the last seven years in a row.

Next we head to the Mornington Peninsula, renowned as Victoria’s decadent region. It has it all – gourmet food experiences, local vineyards, craft markets, unique wildlife and pristine nature areas. We’ll take you to Red Hill for wineries and spectacular bay views then lunch at an acclaimed Winery. In the afternoon, you’ll be able to explore more wineries and cellar doors and you’ll have the option of visiting a native wildlife sanctuary for a close encounter with kangaroo’s and koalas.

This is an ideal tour if you want to maximise your time by combining the excitement of the city with one of the best and most beautiful wine regions the state has to offer.
