After two-and-a-half years of planning and building, the final touches are being made to the new RACV Cape Schanck Resort on the Mornington Peninsula. The brand-new accommodation is officially open to the public from 1 August with discounts available to all RACV members.  

RACV’s Cape Schanck Resort is the latest addition to RACV’s award-winning leisure portfolio, which spans seven properties in Victoria, two in Queensland and one in Tasmania. 

‘RACV has invested $150 million to transform Cape Schanck Resort into a state-of-the-art facility for our members to enjoy.’

Our seven Victorian properties are ideally located to give our members a base to explore the state’s regions. RACV Torquay Resort is a gateway to the Great Ocean Road, while RACV Goldfields Resort is a stone’s throw from Daylesford and Hepburn Springs, the spa capital of the state. RACV’s Cobram Resort gives our members a home away from home in the heart of Victoria’s iconic Murray River Region.

RACV has invested $150 million to transform our Cape Schanck Resort into a state-of-the-art facility for our members to enjoy. The new building consists of 184 new rooms, the largest accommodation offering on the Mornington Peninsula. The property is home to three new premium food and beverage outlets, including Cape, the resort’s high-end restaurant led by acclaimed chef Josh Pelham.  

The Mornington Peninsula is a world-class tourist destination and the beneficiary of significant capital investment in recent years. With its beaches, coastal walking tracks, natural hot springs and local produce, it’s not difficult to see why it is one of the state’s most-visited regions.

RACV Cape Schanck Resort brings the largest conference and event spaces to regional Victoria, as well as a 25-metre indoor pool, sauna and steam room and a fully equipped gym. Guests can enjoy a pampering session at the resort’s One Spa facility, which offers eight separate treatment rooms and a hammam bathing area.

The resort sits on an 18-hole championship golf course, designed by golfing legend Robert Trent Jones Jr. The course will play host to this year’s Victorian PGA Championship from 11 to 14 October. This event will be a fantastic showcase of Cape Schanck Resort’s world-class golf course and we are confident this will be a memorable event for all Victorians.

RACV seeks to provide value to our members and we are thrilled to be doing so with the new Cape Schanck Resort. To find out more about the property, or to book your stay, visit racv.com.au/capeschanck.
