Long stretches of white sandy coastline and a laid-back village feel, Rosebud’s beautiful beach town has a whole lot to boast about. Popular markets, fresh produce, shopping and dining, plus a vibrant wine region on one side and the glittering ocean blue on the other - it’s little wonder this Mornington Peninsula gem has broad appeal.
While city folk arrive in droves over long weekends and summer months, Rosebud’s locals get to enjoy the rustic seaside lifestyle every single day. And with both bush and beach at their fingertips, this is a place where life is lived outdoors.
From sunrise, runners and cyclists make their way along Rosebud’s glittering foreshore, which is teeming with safe swimming beaches, coastal walks and fishing hotspots.
Inland, two golf courses and lush parklands take up a sizeable part of Rosebud. And nearby, Arthurs Seat Lookout has impressive panoramic views of the region. While the town is compact enough to feel quaint, it has everything you need, and then some. A busy stretch of retail along Point Nepean Road leads to a large shopping centre. But it’s the weekend markets that truly delight – Rosebud’s Trash N Treasure Markets, Rosebud Community School Markets, and The Rosebud’s Lions Club Market.
Rosebud also has its fair share of cafés, delis, restaurants and bars, but a short drive to nearby Dromana and Sorrento offer even more options for fun, while the picturesque wineries of Red Hill and Main Ridge are a mere pebble’s throw away.
