What you'll do

Lace up the trail running shoes and we are off on a 15km trail run... starting at Red Hill we cruise along the road side trails until we reach the Arthurs Seat State Park, once in the park we'll be enjoying the inland shady bush trails that criss-cross through the park, trails that only 'locals' know of, past hidden dams and pretty creeks. We'll soon reach Arthurs Seat, here we'll admire the stunning views across the Port Phillip Bay before heading into Seawinds State Park and Main Ridge. We’ll run along endless sweet single track trails, running past historic sites, run-down shacks, multi-million dollar mansions and vineyards, and if we are lucky we'll hopefully spot the odd koala, kangaroo or wallaby in the woodlands.

Hey, I'm The Seagull (Johnny) and I'm an avid and highly experienced trail runner. I've spent the last 15yrs mapping the extensive trail network of the Mornington Peninsula, I'm so lucky to have this stunning location as my 'back garden'. I'm a qualified running coach through Athletics Victoria and I'm the founder of the only trail running club on the Peninsula, Peninsula Trail Runners (PTR).

Where you'll be

Starting at Red Hill we'll visit Arthurs Seat State Park, heading then down to OT Dam, linked to a famous soft drinks producer. We then climb up to Arthurs Seat Summit lookout, approx' 300mtrs above the Port Phillip Bay and visit a cairn built c1802 in honour of explorer Matthew Flinders which offers another fantastic elevated view of Mornington Peninsula. Our next stop is Seawinds State Park before we head back for the coffee and cake.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Mornington Peninsula is rugged, it's hilly, it's absolutely gorgeous, to get to some of the places I've described will require a high level of trail run experience. Let me know your skill level in advance and…

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

Good quality running shoes - preferably trail shoes with some grip (we will be on real trails, 100% off road running)

More tips

This is a trail run and in some places they are unmade trails, rough and slippery, running shoes designed for off road are essential, road run shoes are not ideal.
