Snapshots from the Mornington Peninsula

A couple of months ago I spent a few days down at the beautiful Mornington Peninsula.  I stayed at the lovely Boathouse Resort Studios and Suites in Blairgowrie; the room complete with a spa bath!

The main reason for heading down to the Peninsula?  To visit the Peninsula Hot Springs, which I had been wanting to experience for quite a while.  Since I was getting down there on public transport – which was to take three-and-a-half hours one way – I decided to stay for a couple of nights to avoid seven hours of travelling in the one day.

In addition to visiting the hot springs, I also dined at a fantastic restaurant in Sorrento, Loquat, and I would honestly rate the meal, the wine, the service and especially the dessert (which I was not going to miss out on despite being full from dinner) a 10 out of 10.  The dessert was chocolate fondant with blueberry gel, pepita praline and tonka bean ice-cream, in case you were wondering.

The second day on the Peninsula also involved a four-hour hike from Blairgowrie to Sorrento Back Beach (I was aiming to reach London Bridge near the tip of the Peninsula, but alas time ran out), and on the third day I took a ride up to Arthur’s Seat on the chairlift – Arthur’s Seat Eagle – before heading back to Melbourne.
