5.    Mornington Peninsula, VIC

If it's views of vineyards bathed in sunlight and rolling green hills you're after, look no further than Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. Reminiscent of the wine regions of Tuscany and Spain, this little gem may be less well-known than the Yarra or Hunter valleys but has plenty to offer. 

Lying within the waters of Port Phillip Bay, the Mornington Peninsula boasts enchanting coastal towns such as Portsea and Sorrento which make for the perfect day-trip destination. A perfect fusion of Australia's famed wine and beach cultures, you'll fall in love with the many wine-tasting, swimming and sun-baking opportunties the region affords.
