It’s time for getaway plans to Jackalope on the Mornington Peninsula

With Victoria soon to open up a little more, its time for that long awaited, deserved getaway of indulgence and unsurpassed service.

Hop on down to Jackalope on the Mornington Peninsula, just a little more than an hours’ drive from Melbourne opening 30th October

Jackalope is a new standard in luxury set on a pristine property in the heart of the Morning Peninsula wine region.  

Situated on a private vineyard with a monolithic, jet-black exterior, the hotel stands in sharp contrast to the verdant rolling vines, this juxtaposition is a nod to the hotel’s namesake, a mythical creature – part-jackrabbit, part-antelope – that exists only in folklore.  Jackalope unifies art, design, dining and storytelling in the guest experience, creating a whimsical interplay between the ideal and the surreal.  Shared spaces are lavished with inhabitable art.

The hotel’s 45 rooms are a restrained statement of whites and greys with floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces offering sweeping views over the 30-metre striking black infinity pool overlooking acres of rolling vines.

 Two hatted restaurants surprise with contrasting takes on farm-to-fork food: Doot Doot Doot, delivers upscale dining under the famous 10,000 bulb chandelier with a tantalising tasting menu.  The cellar door restaurant, Rare Hare, offering indoor and outdoor dining,  serves up a food and wine affair with a devil-may-care air.  Food aside, a cocktail bar oozing curated-cool breathes new life into the property’s old homestead, while a cellar door is open for daily wine tasting.   And if that’s not enough, relax and enjoy a range of wellness treatments at the spa or in room.

The Mornington Peninsula is just a one hour from Melbourne,

It offers some of Australia’s best food and wine, golf, adventure, beach and leisure activities. Over 50 cellar doors and restaurants dot the rolling hills around Jackalope’s own 11-hectare vineyard, while the Peninsula’s unique array of dramatic surf and sheltered bay beaches, natural hot springs, the famous hedge maze and national parks contribute to the perfect mix of coastal and country reverie.
