Explore an island where nature and wildlife abounds. Get up close to little penguins, come face-to-face with snoozing koalas and cheer on Grand Prix heroes as you savour every inch of Phillip Island, less than two hours from Melbourne.
Beside the sea
Unwind in the seaside village of Cowes and enjoy holidays as they used to be. Take your position front and centre for the famous Penguin Parade or check out the seal colonies on a cruise from Cowes.
Grab your towel and cool off with a dip at the picturesque north-facing beach before heading down to the world famous Grand Prix circuit. Catch major events including the Moto GP and V8 Supercars or rev up on a go kart. Wind down afterwards with a stroll through the myriad cafes, pubs and restaurants.
Catch a wave or a feed
Pick up fresh seafood in San Remo, or cross the bridge to the village of Newhaven to catch your own. Take the kids to Churchill Island, the site of Victoria's first European settlement, or hit the waves at Cape Woolamai, one of the state's best surf beaches.
Wander along Rhyll's beach and absorb the relaxed atmosphere of the esplanade, stand cheek to furry cheek with koalas at the Koala Conservation Centre or spot birdlife at Rhyll Inlet.
