Lifestyle in Rye


While seemingly a world away from the busy urban streets of Melbourne, Rye is only an easy hour's drive away. Rye and surrounding bayside towns can be accessed by following the coastline from Melbourne via Frankston or, for a faster journey, by taking the M1, through to the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and then Moorooduc Freeway. Rye is serviced by bus routes 786 Rye – St Andrews Beach, 787 Sorrento – Safety Beach and 788 Frankston – Portsea. For a scenic option, a car and passenger ferry crosses between nearby Sorrento and Queenscliff hourly every day.

Parks & Beaches

Rye offers the finest beaches on either side of the peninsula. The northern section is a popular bay beach facing the calm waters of Port Phillip Bay, while the southern surf beach faces the waves coming across the Bass Strait. When locals seek greener pastures, the Mornington Peninsula National Park showcases the area’s spectacular coastline and pristine wilderness of hidden beaches, hiking trails, and rock pools.

Rye is surrounded by several prestigious primary schools servicing the Mornington Peninsula, including Rye Primary School, St Joseph’s School, Sorrento Primary School, Tootgarook Primary School, Eastbourne Primary School, and Boneo Primary School. The longstanding Rye Preschool is also a respected part of the Rye community, and the renowned Rosebud Secondary College is just a short drive away.


As a favoured holiday destination and an up-and-comer among seachangers, it comes as no surprise that new and exciting food and drink venues are sprouting across the Rye township. After a summer day filled with swimming or kite flying, residents and visitors alike flock to the ice cream shops dotted along the main street. A vast and varying collection of cafes, bars and restaurants overlook the foreshore. Modern favourites such as 3 Knots or Freaky Tiki Café will satisfy your smashed avo cravings, while the Rye Hotel is perfect for a hearty Australian meal in an alfresco dining setting.

Rye is a seaside town in Metropolitan Melbourne, located 82km south of Melbourne’s Central Business District and situated in the Shire of Mornington Peninsula.

Rye is the perfect spot for those who enjoy the surf, sun and sand. Rye has a lot of history behind it – in the early years of settlement, Rye was known for lime burning, wood cutting and fishing industries. Even as early as 1886, the town was described as “a peaceful and soothing retreat for those who wish to escape from the maddening crowd” - (Illustrated Australian News, December 18, 1886). This sentiment holds true to this day.

Whether you love outdoor adventures or simply a local coffee, there’s plenty to do around Rye. Head for the Octopus’s Garden at the Rye Pier for snorkelling or ‘The Cups’ golf links where sand dunes provide naturally contoured challenges.

For those wishing to combine prestige with resort living, Rye is a must.

What our clients say

Kelly Euripidou

We engaged Davidson Property Advocates to assist us with the purchase of our dream family home in Mornington Peninsula.

Tracey & Tonya were a fantastic team, both knowledgable, highly communicative and an absolute pleasure to work with. Through their network and relationships they were able to gain access to insights used to develop a strategy that resulted in a successful purchase!

We could not be happier with the result. Will not hesitate to engage them again for our next buy.

Meredith Windust

Tonya was a wonderful help in finding me an apartment in this extremely difficult time. She was professional but friendly and I really enjoyed the experience of finding the right apartment. She listened to exactly what I required and found the perfect apartment for me that ticked all the boxes.

Tonya was the reason that I was successful in purchasing my ideal home and if it wasn’t for her help I would probably have had to wait until next year due to Covid 19.I would highly recommend her!

Ray Swann

Tonya is an outstanding advocate. The role is a tricky one: you need a rare mix of being able to have the ‘soft skills’ of empathy and an understanding what the client wants but also the ‘hard skills’ of negotiation.

Tonya is simply amazing and does both of these things with ease! She also has an ability to help you clarify what is important which means you really can focus on what is valuable. This only strengthens your negotiating position.
