Rosebud, Boneo, Fingal & McCrae
catamarans on the beach at Rosebud, Golf ball on tee and the McCrae lighthouse on the Mornington Peninsula

The town of Rosebud is wedged between the lower slopes of Arthurs Seat, the shores of Port Phillip Bay and the plains of Boneo. Rosebud is the second largest town on the Mornington Peninsula, and a very popular tourist resort with families who appreciate its sandy beaches and shallow waters. Rosebud began as a little fishing village in the 1850's and has been a popular holiday destination since the 1950's.

Rosebud is renown for caravanning and camping on the foreshore, however, it also offers a wide range of B & B's, self-contained cottages and luxury accommodation options.

Facilities include a modern cinema complex, an indoor pool complex, tennis, bowls, ten pin bowling, skating, and more.

Fabulous for the golfer. Not only does Rosebud boast 3 of it's own golf courses, including the fabulous Rosebud Country Club, it is also in very close proximity to the major resort style golf courses on the peninsula.

Visit the McCrae Lighthouse or the McCrae Homestead. Check out the Boneo Maze & Wetlands, get adventurous and get into watersport - you can hire most equipment along the beachfront, or simply enjoy the beautiful clean safe beaches.

Below please find a quick reference for things to do, places to stay and places to eat in the area. If you enjoy reading about the history of the area, check out our Fascinating Historical Facts.

WALKS, PARKS & WILDLIFE
Rosebud Pier to McCrae Lighthouse - 3.5km return - Follow the boardwalk from Rosebud Pier and walk through the foreshore reserve. Return via the beach. A pleasant easy walk any time of the year.
Fingal Picnic Area & Beach Walk - Fingal picnic area is located 2km north of the Cape. This lovely picnic area has electric BBQ's, toilets, tables and an area for games. The government re-purchased this land (1994-1997) after it was previously sub-divided for housing. There are walking tracks to the beach (which is exposed at low tide) and lookouts that boast awesome views of the beach and the bassalt cliffs. The return walk takes approximately 1 hour and is steep in places. Fingal Beach Walking Map
