Popular seaside resort destination for Melbourne daytrippers.
Mornington is situated on high ground adjacent and overlooking Port Phillip Bay, 52 km south of Melbourne's CBD via the Nepean Highway. With about 18 000 people, it is the principal settlement of the Mornington Peninsula - an uplifted block of sandstone, volcanic rocks and granite which extends around in a south-westerly arc to enclose Port Phillip Bay and separate it off from Western Port.
