A Weekend Away - Explore Red Hill
The heart and soul of the Peninsula’s revered wine region, this peaceful rural hinterland is nestled between Western Port and Port Philip Bay, where rolling hills, verdant vineyards and native bushland merge with the best of bay and ocean beaches.
Famed for its distinctive wines and sumptuous local produce, this family playground offers something for everyone, from cosy cafes to high end wineries including Port Philip Estate, Red Hill Estate, Montalto, Polperro, Paringa Estate and Ten Minutes By Tractor, there’s a vast array of unforgettable culinary experiences on offer.
At Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm and Red Hill Cherry Farm, visitors can indulge in exciting ‘pick your own’ experiences, while the bio-dynamic apple orchard at Mock Red Hill offers craft beverages and share-plate casual lunches. The Mornington Peninsula’s original micro-brewery, the Red Hill Brewery, also dishes up casual dining to accompany its popular craft beer selection.
Scenic tracks, including the stunning Red Hill Rail Trail, also make the region hugely popular for walkers, horse and bike riders looking to enjoy the region’s picturesque environs.
Once a month from September to May, people flock to the iconic Red Hill Market where artisan makers and producers meet to share their wares, while June’s Winter Wine Weekend offers yet another opportunity to sample the best of local produce.
Seemingly worlds away yet just an hour from Melbourne, this tranquil rural hub promises plenty to do and see for a day, a weekend or even a week.
