You're fortunate to have found your feet in one of the better parts of Melbourne. In your area there is a lot of good riding territory. One of the nicer rides is from Mornington to Point Nepean - or part way thereto. Lots of suburban cyclists make the effort to go to Mornington to do that one.
There must also be at least a dozen different routes you can take from Mornington to Hastings and/or Stony Point and if you fancy a good hill challenge there's always Arthur's Seat.
What you could do is advertise a ride in this "Plan a Ride" forum nominating a particular Tuesday, Thursday or Friday. Make the starting/meeting point to be on Schnapper Pt Drive, just west of the roundabout where Schnapper Pt Dr meets The Esplanade and Main Street, Mornington. Time to start 9:00am, 9:30am or 10:00am - whichever suits best.
If you would like an opportunity to meet several of the people who are regular posters here before you start organising your own rides I suggest you join in the Lunch in Warby
