How to get to Dromana

You can catch public transport to get to Dromana, but it will involve taking a train and then changing to a bus. From Southern Cross Station in Melbourne, catch a train to Frankston station. It’s important to note that buses only run every 45 minutes during the week, and every one or two hours on weekends.

People who are flying into Victoria can either fly to Tullamarine Airport in Melbourne or Avalon Airport in Geelong.

What to do in Dromana

On the surface, it may seem Dromana is just a little town by the ocean, but actually once you start exploring you’ll find there’s an abundance of food, nature and wine. Here are just a few things to do while in Dromana.

Cafes

There’s nothing better than discovering a new café while on holiday and Dromana has plenty of eccentric places to check out. If you can’t fathom starting the day without some bean juice, head to Little Rebel Roastery. You might even (dare I say it) find some of the best coffee outside of Melbourne. The café is in a big industrial space with huge murals covering the walls. The baristas have plenty of blends for you to try including filter brews on tap.

Arthurs Seat

No trip is complete to Mornington Peninsula without checking out the Arthurs Seat Lookout. You can choose to walk, drive or take a gondola up to the lookout from Dromana. Once you’re at the top, there are several walks you can do that start from the lookout. You’ll get spectacular views of the ocean and the surrounding area.

Restaurants and Bars

Did you know Victoria’s first craft rum distillery is in Dromana? Founder James McPherson decided that he wanted to make his own rum so he went on a whirlwind trip to North America, the Caribbean and Europe to do some research (and drinking) on craft distilling. He created JimmyRum where people can go and learn about the different styles of rum around the world. They also make a killer espresso rumtini.

There are also a number of incredible restaurants that are dotted around Dromana that you should definitely check out including Monkey Business, Two Buoys and Kacha Thai.

Wineries

There are a number of wineries in Dromana including Crittenden Estate. Owner Garry Crittenden is a pioneer in the Australian wine industry. Not only was he the first vintner to see the potential of Mornington Peninsula as a successful wine region but he was also the first person to commercialise Italian grape varieties. He introduced several grape varietals that we have come to love today including sangiovese, barbera, Nebbiolo and dolcetto. While you’re at Crittenden Estate you should also stop by their award-winning restaurant Stillwater.
