Named after a surf break, super chilled, and organic, this isn’t your stuffy winery but has all the beauty you might expect.
Experience the famous Aussie Laid-Back Lifestyle…in style!
There aren’t many better ways to experience Australia’s laid back lifestyle than on a laid back small group tour (8 people maximum), which does loads of awe-inspiring activities but also goes at a cruisey pace. Every aspect of the day has been meticulously crafted so you can get a real feel for what the lifestyle on the Mornington Peninsula is like whilst connecting with nature in the best way possible.

Picture pulling up to a breathtaking viewpoint and the back of the van opens up into a fold-down bar and sofa to sit back and enjoy with a refreshing local beverage in hand.
For us, there is so much more to the Mornington Peninsula than just vineyards, or beaches, or watersports, or nature & wildlife, or outdoor & wellness activities. This day of exploration allows you to delve into the true essence of what makes this place so damn special!
