    Your journey begins in Melbourne where your driver will collect you for a one hour drive to the Mornington Peninsula. Before reaching Jackalope you’ll first have the opportunity to stretch your legs on a 1-2 hour self-guided walk from Bushrangers Bay to the tip of Cape Schanck. Your driver will point you in the right direction and meet you at Cape Schank ready to transfer you to Jackalope. Upon arrival, settle into your Vineyard View Suite and relax this afternoon. You may like a soak in your Japanese style black tub or a dip in the infinity pool, or perhaps enjoy a glass of bubbles on your terrace with vineyards views.

    Day 3

    Today is an early start for your Wilsons Prom full-day experience. After breakfast, your host for the day will meet you and transfer you in comfort for your 2.5 hour journey to Wilsons Promontory National Park. Your time in the national park will start with a bang, with a bucket-list walk to the summit of Mt Oberon where you’ll enjoy breathtaking views over the bay and national park below. After morning tea it’s time for a beach walk from Tidal River to Norman Point which is a prominent rocky headland surrounded by ocean on three sides. If you are keen to explore further, Little Oberon Bay is just around the corner and being accessible only on foot, it’s a great secluded beach for a swim. Lunch will be enjoyed on the track, or back at Tidal River per your preference. The rest of the afternoon sees you visiting pristine beaches – Whisky Bay and Squeaky Beach are two favourites - and spotting wombats and other wildlife in their natural habitat. The drive back towards the park exit is very scenic and will have you relishing the wild beauty on offer here. Your host will tailor your return journey to suit your mood, with the option of some wine tasting or lingering longer in the national park an option. You’ll arrive at Jackalope in time for dinner, with the night free to enjoy in your suite or at one of the restaurants or bars.
