MELBOURNE - WILSON PROMONTORY- MORNINGTON PENINSULA. 13-14MAY

Travelmates wanted for this weekend (May 13-14)

From melbourne to Wilson Promontory and Mornington Peninsula!
We will be heading Wilson on saturday to do hiking and sleep over there. On sunday we will be visiting Mornington Peninsula. If the weather is good we will do some water sports.
Also we need a tent for 4ppl. It'd be great if someone can lend/rent us one.
Shared expenses (car rental + fuel only)
Everybody is welcome to join us! Just send a pm

Give some more information about yourself please to illicit a better response, I doubt anyone is going to loan a tent to someone randomly posting a first time request.
Mornington peninsular is very nice, the views from Arthurs seat are great although the weather can be hit and miss this time of year. The Eagle cable car is a nice 30 min round trip, its $24 return, a little expensive really but is nice. Heaps of decent walking options in the area and nice beaches. Have a great time.

Hmm, I know you didn't ask for input specifically, but I'd really think just picking one of those destination would be better for you. There is plenty to fill a whole weekend at both. Bear in mind the Prom is a good 4 hours drive from Melbourne, so you'll spend a fair bit of the day getting there and back. You probably won't get there till Saturday afternoon and if you want to fit in a decent day at Mornington Peninsula, then you'd have to leave the Prom early Sunday. That really just leaves half an afternoon and a night at the Prom which is a really long way to drive for such a short time. A lot of the hikes won't even be possible with such a short time.
