Tour Itinerary

The day begins with an easy drive to Arthurs Seat which sits 300m above the Peninsula and provides impressive views over Port Phillip Bay & beyond. From here we drive to Cape Schanck Lighthouse which forms part of the Mornington Peninsula National Park to commence our epic 7.5km return walk out to Bushrangers Bay. This walk is absolutely up there with the Pinnacles, Mt Oberon etc. as one of the best short hikes in Victoria. The trail takes you through dense coastal heathland which hugs the dramatic cliffs before descending down onto the sandy beach of Bushrangers Bay. Once on the beach I encourage guests to take off their shoes and walk along the shore before we reach ancient the volcanic geological rock formation called Elephant Rock and its amazing rock pools. The contrasts between these ancient volcanic rocks, the cliffs and sandy beach provides incredible photo opportunities. Once back at Cape Schanck we’ll descend the wooden boardwalks to further explore coastal lookouts and the black pebble beach which leads to the striking  Pulpit Rock. Now that we’ve worked up an appetite we’ll enjoy a sandwich and fruit in the grounds of the lighthouse.

After lunch we drive a short distance to the Peninsula Hot Springs where guests will have the chance to spend 2.5 hours relaxing in the various hot springs and take the opportunity to experience a Turkish steam bath, sauna, cold plunge pools and the hilltop pool with 360 degree views of the Peninsula. There is simply no better way to relax after a great hike. We’ll depart the Hot Springs at 4:30pm for a 6pm arrival in Melbourne.

We loved our 1 day winery tour in Heathcote. Jono had picked some great independent venues where you got to meet the owners and everything was well organised from start to finish. The bus was comfy and clean, price was very good value and Jono was a great host. Would definitely recommend!

My wife and I took a 2-day Great Ocean Walk with Jono. We started at Blanket Bay and finished at Johanna Beach. Then he took us to see the 12 Apostles. It couldn't have been more fun. Jono is a very engaging guide and host. He took care of every detail. He is extremely well-traveled, and it was fun to hear about his adventures. The walks each day were broken into 1 1/2 to 2 hour sections with Jono greeting us at the ends with snacks and cold drinks. His camping equipment made the chilly evening manageable. We highly recommend Jono and Good Times.

We called on Jono to organise a private wine tour of the Yarra Valley and had a great day out! He organised our tastings and booked lunch for us and then gave us the flexibility on the day to add in other venues. The group all appreciated his local knowledge and relaxed personality.
