As an alternative to the pricey holiday homes of Sorrento and Portsea, consider McCrae for your Mornington Peninsula accommodation holiday rentals.

Facing north-west into Port Phillip Bay and lying between Dromana and Rosebud is the coastal town of McCrae. With coastline frontage, the white sandy McCrae Beach is one of the Mornington Peninsula’s loveliest beaches, giving a good protected swimming spot, with many cafes and facilities nearby. The beach at McCrae is very popular with families, as the sand is clean and white and the water is safe and calm for swimming. There are plenty of picnic spots and necessary facilities.


McCrae is well positioned for holiday rental accommodation, being just a few minutes drive from the well-known Arthurs Seat and the lovely nature walks at the Arthurs Seat State Park.

McCrae has a cool little shopping district, including some great cafes. The best are Trims, The Pavillion, and Heronswood. Try The Light House Café for the best Thai food on the Mornington Peninsula.

One of the main features of McCrae is the McCrae Yacht Club. McCrae Yacht Club has been providing sailing training by members since the 1970’s. The training centre has grown from a small number of children being instructed by sailing parents into a professional but still friendly organisation. The McCrae Yacht Club Training Centre is an accredited training location giving full sail- and power-boat instruction to sailors, club members, and the community. In 2010 the McCrae Yacht Club won the Yachting Victoria Training Centre of the Year Award for its hard work in the promotion of sailing.

McCrae is a fantastic choice for holiday rental homes if you love sailing or a sandy white beach. It’s a perfect spot for families to take holiday rental accommodation – a safe and calm part of the Mornington Peninsula, and less busy than other towns like Sorrento and Portsea.
