Rainy Day Adventures: Best Indoor Activities on the Mornington Peninsula

Don’t let rain ruin your holiday! Who says you can’t have just as much fun in the rain? The Mornington Peninsula is known for its summer activities like swimming and surfing, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have just as much fun a rainy day.

From luxurious spa experiences to enjoying some simple downtime in your accommodation, we welcome rainy days on the Mornington Peninsula.

Here’s some inspo for rainy day adventures, and the best indoor activities to do during your stay:

Experience the Peninsula Hot Springs

Rain or shine, Peninsula Hot Springs is the place to be. Rainy days are actually some of the most magical days at the springs. Sitting in hot geothermal baths while the rain cools your face – it’s such a refreshing feeling, and it’s actually something to put on your bucket list.

Plus, there are so many indoor activities too. Treat yourself to a massage experience, spend some time in the saunas and steam rooms before dunking into a cold plunge pool, or book a relaxation tent for the day.

Wine tastings

There’s nothing stopping you from tasting world-class wine on a rainy day. Wineries in the Mornington Peninsula are well-equipped for rain, with plenty of indoor space, often with an open fire to warm up. Some of our favourite wineries for rainy days include Main Ridge Estate, Crittenden Wine Centre and Point Leo Estate. Stay for the day and enjoy a grazing menu or a meal.

Downtime in your luxury accommodation

When you choose a luxury listing from Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats, you won’t want to leave your accommodation – and this is perfect for rainy days. Sitting under the veranda and watching the downpour; enjoying a cup of tea inside while listening to the pitter-patter on the roof; reading a book in bed as the raindrops trickle down the window – these are the things we crave when it rains on the Mornington Peninsula.

Our holiday homes also offer loads of indoor activities, like board games, gym equipment and billiards, keeping everyone occupied during the wet weather.

Take a ride on the Arthurs Seat Eagle

The Arthurs Seat Eagle is a family favourite on dry days, but it’s equally as fun (and far less busy) when the weather is rainy! Sit in your cosy cable car and enjoy the view as rain pours all around you. Then, enjoy the warmth and dry in the Eagle Café when you reach the top.
