Mornington Peninsula – Rye

The popular coastal town of Rye is situated on Mornington Peninsula, nestled between Rosebud and Blairgowrie.

An expansive suburb, it has a main thoroughfare running parallel to the town’s bay beach featuring a variety of eateries, shops and a large supermarket, and then it expands southwards across the narrow width of the Mornington Peninsula down to the coastline fronting the open waters of Bass Strait.  The Mornington Peninsula National Park spans the foreshore here, consisting of scenic walking tracks, rocky coastal features, dunes and pockets of sandy beach.

Rye also has a number of properties of significant acreage nestled in between the front and back beaches, one of which is the Peninsula Hot Springs.  The perfect spot for relaxing and rejuvenating, the experience of bathing in the healing waters in the mineral-rich thermal baths and pools should not be missed when visiting Rye.

Rye’s main beach, fronting Port Phillip Bay, offers safe sandy beaches, ideal for swimming and boating. There is a jetty, several boat ramps, and attractive foreshore facilities with picnic areas, shelters, playgrounds and walking tracks.

There are some excellent holiday rentals to be found in Rye, to satisfy any budget.
