Travel by air-conditioned minivan to the Mornington Peninsula, only 90 minute's drive from Melbourne.

Start your day exploring the food, wine and scenery of the Mornington Peninsula by horseback. No experience is necessary. This is a leisurely ride on gentle, highly trained horses led by experienced rider-guides.

After being fitted for your horse, set off for a three-hour ride through the Red Hill vineyard region which is well known for growing wine grapes for chardonnays, pinot noirs and pinot grigios. You'll make two stops at select wineries and taste the celebrated wines of the region before enjoying a lunch made from the local produce.

In the afternoon you'll visit the Lavender Gardens and Ashcombe Maze. Originally farm land, this large property has been transformed into a beautiful garden and hedge maze. Let loose and see if you can master every turn through this intricate maze and search for the secret gnome treasure, while taking in the relaxing scents of aromatic lavender.

Your final stop will either be at the Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm (November to April) or the Peninsula Hot Springs (May to October).

At the famous strawberry fields of Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm, you have the opportunity to pick the freshest strawberries to take home or sit back in the Dessert Cafe and enjoy homemade strawberry sorbet and ice cream.

The Peninsula Hot Springs is the first natural hot spring in Victoria. The ever- flowing thermal mineral waters flow into private baths and pools which provide the idyllic setting for relaxation and rejuvenation. Here, enjoy massaging your feet as you walk in the unique reflexology pool at Peninsula Hot Springs.
