RACV Cape Schanck Resort’s unparalleled redevelopment on the Mornington Peninsula

Cape ShankIt’s a challenge to visualise exactly what a venue will be like before it’s even opened. But RACV is using the latest technology to show prospective clients exactly what its Cape Schanck redevelopment will offer when it opens next year.

RACV Cape Schanck Resort’s extensive conference and event facilities, due to open in April 2018, will include spectacular and flexible meeting rooms and break-out areas, all providing views and an abundance of natural light with a capacity to hold 450 for conferences.

To give event organisers an idea of the scale of the multi-million dollar redevelopment, RACV has created a Virtual Reality tour of the venue, available online. You can experience it here. But, if you’d like to go old-school, they also offer ‘Hard Hat’ tours onsite to let you see exactly what you can expect from Victoria’s newest conference location.

Just a leisurely 75 minute drive from Melbourne’s CBD on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, the latest step in RACV’s ever-expanding range of conference venues, will offer state-of-the-art facilities for all kinds of events. From small and intimate gatherings to meetings involving hundreds of guests.

RACV Cape Schanck Resort is positioned high on a headland overlooking Bass Strait and hedged by the spectacular Mornington Peninsula National Park. With breathtaking views, and over 200 accommodation rooms in total, the choice, quality and comfort of the accommodation options are second-to-none. Premium Resort Rooms, 2 & 3 bedroom villas, suites and ocean view rooms ensure your accommodation needs are surpassed at RACV’s Cape Schanck Resort.

The redevelopment of RACV Cape Schanck will offer a rare combination of flexible meeting spaces, excellent catering and dining options, and a range of recreation and team building activities. Executive Chef, Josh Pelham, brings his years of experience working at Michelin-star restaurants in the UK and some of Melbourne’s best eateries, to create extraordinary dishes at the resort’s restaurants, utilising the best of local ingredients.

When it comes to providing opportunities to break up meetings with an unexpected recreational activity, Cape Schanck is hard to beat. Of course, golf is first among these. Cape Schanck’s magnificent par 70 championship golf course is consistently rated amongst Australia’s best 100 courses. The driving range, putting green and practice areas also offer the chance to create tailored competitions that are excellent bonding exercises.

Naturally, the resort offers a range of other ways to break up the business side of an event. A 25-metre indoor pool, sauna and steam room are also available for use. A fully-equipped gym, floodlit tennis courts and shore-line walking tracks give guests an opportunity to stay physical. While the resort’s day spa provides 8 treatment rooms and 2 hydrotherapy pools in which to experience a range of relaxing therapies from massage to Turkish Hammam.

Beyond the resort itself, a variety of other activities are available on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. Perhaps a tour of a nearby winery. A walk to the lighthouse. A visit to the Peninsula Hot Springs. Or a ride on the Arthurs Seat Skylift.

The expanded RACV Cape Schanck Resort will open in April, and is taking bookings now for events. But you can experience a virtual tour today by visiting here. Or, if you’d like to see the breadth of facilities in person, you can contact the RACV National Sales Manager on email Cherie_ferris@racv.com.au to register for the next ‘Hard Hat’ tour.
