Situated in the heart of the scenic Mornington Peninsula on approximately 35 acres of landscaped gardens, the Nepean Country Club is one of Victoria's premier holiday destinations with a wealth of on-site and local activities.
A recent and much appreciated addition to the resort is the Day Spa which offers a full array of luscious indulgences to help you relax and invigorate.
Like any Country Club worth its salt, Nepean boasts an impressive array of sporting options - tennis courts, two of which are indoors and have lights; a squash court; a heated indoor and a large outdoor swimming pool, spa and sauna; mini golf; lawn bowls; sand volleyball; basketball; a 1.2 km exercise track; a gym; canoes for the lake; games room; and a children's adventure playground.
For the less energetic, relax in Phil's Bar before dining at Fingal's, the on-site licensed Restaurant, which offers a friendly atmosphere in a peaceful setting. Alternately you can sit and enjoy the luxurious reception lounge with the cosy open fire and library.
The fully self-contained studio, one bedroom and two bedroom units are well appointed and welcoming.
A few minutes from Rosebud and Port Phillip Bay, this award-winning resort is the perfect spot from which to explore the region. Rosebud is one of the original settlements in the area and is still a firm favourite. No doubt thanks to its beautiful, safe swimming beaches and lovely days.
The Mornington Peninsula isn't very big, but it's bursting with things to do. Melbournians have long gone there for lazy beachside holidays, but you'd be excused for thinking you'd wandered into another world.
Its coastlines, with their picturesque seaside villages, have distinct echoes of Mediterranean charm and sophistication. Waterfront restaurants and cafes abound, lavish mansions perch on top of dramatic cliffs, art galleries and antique shops tempt passersby and there are numerous markets with gourmet produce.
For the athletic and adventurous, water sports are plentiful. Sailing, fishing, scuba diving, kayaking ... even swimming with wild dolphins. Of course, there are also more traditional pastimes; like taking a walk along the very tip of the Peninsula, playing golf, shopping at the trendy boutiques and taking scenic drives along meandering country roads.
One of those drives will, no doubt, take you past the olive groves and on to the many wineries that dot the Mornington Peninsula. Well known for their chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot gris, they offer the gourmet traveller exceptional fare as well.
