Mornington Peninsula Discovery
Visit Mornington Peninsula's Ultimate Wineries
Set on a pristine vineyard amid the Mornington Peninsula - only one hour from Melbourne - intoxicating rural acreage frames a hotel unique in both destination and design.
Highlights include 45 designer dens, a variety of dining options offering wine and culinary experiences and a striking, black 30-metre infinity pool overlooking the vines.
Jackalope offers immersive food and wine experiences delivered through its two restaurants, cocktail bar, winery and cellar door. Set under the arresting canopy of a slowly twinkling 10,000-globe chandelier, the hotel’s headline dining act, Doot Doot Doot, presents the region’s finest produce paired with a daring selection of single vineyard wines.
Ranging from 38-85sqm, Jacklope’s luxurious rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows, private terraces, King-sized beds and rain showers, while some splash out with black, deep-soak Japanese baths. Jackalope’s signature suites, Lairs, are lavished with loft ceilings, a 30sqm terrace overlooking the vines, a double-sided indoor/outdoor fireplace, kitchenette and bar.
In the spirit of the on-site winery's single vineyard heritage, Jackalope's hatted restaurant, Doot Doot Doot, delivers a faithful expression of site. Executive Chef, Guy Stanaway, and Head Chef, Martin Webster, present an ever-evolving five-course tasting menu drawing on seasonal offerings from the hotel's kitchen garden and select Mornington Peninsula producers.
Planted in 1989, the 11-hectare Willow Creek Vineyard produces some of the most elegant single-vineyard wines on the Mornington Peninsula.
Just an hour’s drive from Melbourne and framed by three contrasting coastlines, the Mornington Peninsula offers some of Australia’s best food and wine, golf, adventure and leisure activities. Over 50 cellar doors dot the rolling hills, while the region’s array of beaches, natural hot springs, and national parks contribute to the perfect mix of coastal and country reverie.
