About your guide

Experienced and passionate local guide who is first aid trained

The Mornington Peninsula is still breathtaking 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 grazing picnic lunch.

Your adventure starts meeting your WAM guide at McCrae Lighthouse in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula, from here your WAM guide takes you for a morning of guided coastal bushwalking experience with panoramic views from the clifftops looking out over the Southern Ocean.

From May to October, it’s whale watching season so we spend a good amount of time to spot humpback whales or southern right whales making their annual migration along the coast. The location we take you to is one of the best land locations to spot whales and we even provide marine binoculars to give ourselves the best chance! Keep an eye out on land too as we often see kangaroos, echidnas, and birdlife as we bushwalk to the dramatic Bushrangers Bay

Once back at the WAM van, we’ll take you on a short drive to a fantastic ocean viewpoint location for a grazing style picnic lunch full of fresh local produce.

After all that action and wildlife spotting, it’s time to relax and there is nothing better on a winters then to bathe at the Peninsula Hot Springs. These world renowned springs have over 50 bathing experiences for you to choose from immersed in nature including sensational hot pools, saunas and steam rooms.

Feeling refreshed, relaxed and warmed up, we’ll head back to the vehicle and return to the starting point of the adventure in McCrae mid afternoon to say farewell after a beautiful winter adventure.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss an alternative pick up location from your accommodation on the Mornington Peninsula or Frankston Station.
