Tucked away in total seclusion, yet mere minutes from all major attractions, Boogoolum is centrally located amidst everything the Mornington Peninsula has to offer: beautiful bay and surf beaches, charming coastal villages, the hinterland’s gastronomic food trail with world class restaurants and wineries, boutique breweries, golf courses, National Parks, and so much more; with only an hour’s drive from Melbourne, Boogoolum offers unrivalled serenity and seclusion whilst balancing both an incredible location with total escapism, perfectly.
