The Mornington Peninsula - A Luxury Winter Escape

The Mornington Peninsula - A Luxury Winter Escape

With winter approaching you may be looking to get out of the cold and spend your winter in luxury. The incredible Mornington Peninsula - a destination for all seasons, is the best place to do just that! Holiday Shacks has been providing luxury holiday experiences to our guests and property owners alike for the past ten years, since 2008. Most people think of the Mornington Peninsula as a summer getaway, however as a year round destination we always recommend the Mornington Peninsula for a winter retreat. During winter, The Peninsula offers just as many incredible delights as this amazing destination does in summer; and being only 60 to 90 minutes’ drive from Melbourne, why wouldn't you visit for that much needed short stay escape? A quiet off-season holiday is the perfect way to spend quality time with your family, partner or friends.

Here’s why we recommend the Mornington Peninsula for your next winter holiday:

1. Less Crowds

The Mornington Peninsula is simply quieter in the winter. If you’re looking for quiet luxury, then this is definitely the destination for you. You’ll still experience all of the fun and beauty that the Mornington Peninsula has to offer and you won’t have to fight the crowds. That means a more relaxing experience for you. Restaurants and attraction bookings will be easier to come by in advance and visit.If you’re looking for a restful and relaxing holiday, you don’t want to take your holiday in peak tourist season during the middle of summer. The weather is stunning and there are so many fun things to do, but the winter months give you a quiet escape that’s also truly refreshing.

2. Temperature

A cooler average temperature often means a more intimate holiday - whether that’s staying inside around the roaring fireplace, at a winery restaurant or inside shopping, the cooler weather brings a nice calm to the area that not many tourists get to experience. Just be sure to pack warmer clothes and make sure you’re staying within the warmth of a Holiday Shacks home.

By booking through Holiday Shacks, you can be sure that you’re getting the most luxurious holiday possible. Our properties are truly stunning and we provide a simply unforgettable holiday experience. We love the Mornington Peninsula in the winter!

3. Activities

When temperatures cool down in the winter months there are still plenty of fun things to do on the Mornington Peninsula. Most people associate the Peninsula with hot summer days on the beach, but there is a lot to enjoy during the winter months. We highly recommend an indoor pampering experience which we can organise for you. How about some relaxation or deep tissue massages around snuggling indoors at one of our fabulous properties. Let us know when you confirm your booking and we can arrange this pampering experience during your stay. You may love to practice yoga or meditation? We have our experts at hand to guide you through a deeply relaxing experience. Talk to us to find out more! 

One of the best things to do on cooler days is to take a trip to the beautiful hot springs or our partner Wellness centre The Wellness Manor which is great place to relax and get pampered while warming up from the cold. This full-service day spa provides ultimate relaxation and comfort. Talk to us to find out more!  The Mornington Peninsula is also home to many museums and art galleries, including the Manyung Gallery, which features contemporary art. You’ll also find some of the best regional wineries, dining and shopping around! When the cold weather hits there is still plenty to do on your luxury holiday.
