Seven reasons to escape to Cape Schanck
At the rugged end of the Mornington Peninsula, and with a brand-new restaurant, RACV Cape Schanck Resort is the ideal place for a winter escape.
Cape Schanck, on the southernmost tip of the Mornington Peninsula, remains the wilder part of Victoria’s premier playground. Here, the well-tended wineries and manicured hills of the hinterland give way to the stark beauty of tea-tree scrub and endless stretches of deserted coastline.
For a region that punches above its weight for wineries, restaurants, and winery-restaurants, the Mornington Peninsula boasts surprisingly few hip hotels, which makes the architect-designed RACV Cape Schanck Resort especially welcome. And the resort can now add a new 150-seat restaurant to its long list of reasons to visit, with modern-Australian casual diner Samphire now open.
