ROSEBUD

GET TO KNOW
THE AREA

Long stretches of white sandy coastline and a laid-back village feel, Rosebud’s beautiful beach town has a whole lot to boast about. Popular markets, fresh produce, shopping and dining, plus a vibrant wine region on one side and the glittering ocean blue on the other - it’s little wonder this Mornington Peninsula gem has broad appeal.

Lifestyle

While city folk arrive in droves over long weekends and summer months, Rosebud’s locals get to enjoy the rustic seaside lifestyle every single day. And with both bush and beach at their fingertips, this is a place where life is lived outdoors.

From sunrise, runners and cyclists make their way along Rosebud’s glittering foreshore, which is teeming with safe swimming beaches, coastal walks and fishing hotspots.

Inland, two golf courses and lush parklands take up a sizeable part of Rosebud. And nearby, Arthurs Seat Lookout has impressive panoramic views of the region. While the town is compact enough to feel quaint, it has everything you need, and then some. A busy stretch of retail along Point Nepean Road leads to a large shopping centre. But it’s the weekend markets that truly delight – Rosebud’s Trash N Treasure Markets, Rosebud Community School Markets, and The Rosebud’s Lions Club Market.

Rosebud also has its fair share of cafés, delis, restaurants and bars, but a short drive to nearby Dromana and Sorrento offer even more options for fun, while the picturesque wineries of Red Hill and Main Ridge are a mere pebble’s throw away.

SAND AND SEA

Boasting nine kilometres of pristine coast, Rosebud comes teeming with calm swimming beaches that are ideal for families. But that’s not all there is to enjoy on the water, outdoor activities run the gamut from fishing to diving to kayaking. – And what’s makes them even better – you can follow up with a fresh seafood lunch.

SCENIC TRAILS

Morning walks don’t get better than this. The leisurely 28-kilometre Bay Trail runs the entire length of Rosebud’s foreshore, capturing sweeping views of Port Phillip Bay, winding through majestic banksias and tea trees and passing by the handsome Rosebud Pier, which extends 300 metres into the sea. 

WINE REGIONS

Rosebud might have clear blue water and white sandy beaches to one side, but they also have stunning wine regions to the other. A mere 10-minute drive will find you among the lush vineyards of Red Hill and Main Ridge, where you can enjoy cellar door tastings and beautiful long lunches at a moment’s notice.
