Hot Springs, Bushwalking and indigenous lunch
Hot Springs Yoga & Bathe, Coastal Bushwalking, Whale Watching & an Indigenous Inspired Brunch
Treat yourself to a day of active relaxation this winter on the Mornington Peninsula combining hot springs, brunch, and whale watching. Spend the morning bathing surrounded by nature in some of the world’s best thermal hot springs. Warm up your mind and body with a hot springs yoga class led by a Peninsula Hot Springs instructor to feel rejuvenated. Your journey continues with bushwalking along with the balcony of the southern ocean which is one of the best spots to see whales making their annual migration, so we stop at a viewpoint for an Indigenous-inspired packed brunch to try fresh local produce infused with native ingredients. Whether you are staying on the Peninsula or visiting for the day, this adventure will be the highlight and the perfect winter activity.
For every booking we also make a donation to the Two Bays Whale Project who do essential research, recording and education programs to help the conservation of the whales in our oceans. We also send any sightings of whales during this adventure to the Two Bays Whale Project so it can be recorded.

About your guide
Experienced and passionate local guide who is first aid trained
The Mornington Peninsula is just as good during winter, and this is the perfect way to see it with bucket loads of relaxation at the hot springs, active adventure on the bushwalk, land and marine wildlife spotting opportunities, plus a delicious indigenous inspired packed lunch.
Your adventure starts meeting your WAM guide at a convenient location on the Peninsula (pick up is also available from Frankston Train Station or Mornington Peninsula accommodation upon request), from here your WAM guide takes you to replenish your mind and body immersed in nature at some of the worlds best thermal pools. Relax, soothe and even try hot springs yoga. Held in the new Amphitheatre and led by a Peninsula Hot Springs yoga instructor, join other bathers for a yoga class like no other. The class combines the benefits of geothermal bathing with stretching, strengthening, and balancing yoga poses. The session is open to all levels.
Feeling refreshed and warmed up, your guide will take you to the southern edge of the Peninsula for a guided bushwalking experience with panoramic views from the clifftop looking out over the Southern Ocean. From June to October, it’s whale watching season so we bring an included packed lunch so we can stop and have time to spot humpback whales or southern right whales making their annual migration along the coast. Lunch is a beautiful indigenous-inspired packed lunch from our friends at Cooee Cafe where you get to try unique native ingredients and fresh local produce. Keep an eye out on land too as we often see kangaroos, echidnas, and birdlife as we bushwalk to the dramatic Bushrangers Bay, before heading back to the vehicle and head back to where you started.
This adventure includes coastal bushwalking done at a leisurely pace so just a moderate level of fitness is required. If you are unsure if this tour is suitable for you, please contact us(opens in a new tab) or check out some of our other adventures.
These tours operate in the cooler months of the year and occasionally there can be adverse weather conditions. If the weather is not suitable for bushwalking or lunch as we go, we will adjust the itinerary or call you the day prior to your tour to discuss other options.
