You can also call into the Peninsula's only micro-brewery at Red Hill, to sample some of their signature beers.  Wide-open sandy beaches lie within a five minute drive, and golf lovers will find no less than ten championship courses in the area. The nearby Gunnamatta Equestrian centre arranges ocean beach and bush horse riding. Don't miss the viewpoint at Arthur's Seat , or the famous fairy penguin colonies at Philip Island.
