It takes in all kinds of terrain up to the cape, including powerful surf beaches, good old Aussie bushland, and woodlands. You can explore all of it in a timely manner if you wish, with good walking, swimming, and activities, along with picnicking and wildlife-spotting.

Out of town are these stunning mineral springs, fed from under the Mornington Peninsula. Pools and private spas are laid out amid nature, including grasslands and wetlands. The main pools are communal, while private spas are accompanied on site by a cave pool, a Turkish steam bath reflexology walk, plunge pools, and a sauna.

Transportation in Rye

Rye is just over an hour by car from Melbourne via the M11 freeway. Metro trains run from the city to Frankston and Bittern and then on to Rye, while bus numbers 786, 787, and 788 also serve the area, going via beaches and towns on the way. In addition, you can easily come from the other side of the peninsula via Geelong, with a ferry going from nearby Queenscliff to Sorrento.
