Cosmopolitan wining and dining

Take a break from the beaches to tour Dromana's lauded wineries, including Dromana Estate, Hickinbotham of Dromana, and Crittenden Estate. Plant yourself in the Heronswood historic gardens and sample the garden-grown produce.

Rinse off the sunscreen for drinks and dinner in the growing crop of wine bars and cafes, from Dromana right through to Rye.

Around the greens

Slow things right down with a visit to the Peninsula Hot Springs. Choose from 20 different bathing experiences and feel your body unwind in the hot thermal pools surrounded by the pristine Australian landscape.
