The beaches in Sydney get a lot of limelight, but Melbourne delivers some noteworthy sands in its own right, especially on the western tip of the Mornington Peninsula. Staying overnight in the seaside town of Blairgowrie – sandwiched between two national parks – is the ultimate way to explore the pristine coastline, whether you’re after long walks and hot springs, or winery tours and strawberry fields. Plus, many of these options are rental homes giving you the freedom to cook your own meals and relax in private surroundings. We’ve got you covered with these hotels and holiday apartments in Blairgowrie, bookable on Culture Trip.
