From the high speed thrills of the Moto GP and V8 Supercars to the rhythm and melody of the Pyramid Rock and Phillip Island Jazz festivals, there's a lot more to the island than just friendly wildlife and stunning coastlines. Soak up the island's festival atmosphere, join in at community activities, and get the whole family together at gatherings all year round.

Steel wheels
Join motorbike enthusiasts from around the world as they converge on the famous Phillip Island Grand Prix track for the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix and World Superbike Championship.

Absorb the non-stop action and thunderous sounds of the V8 Supercars, and experience a range of historic and national motor sport events throughout the year.

For a quieter mode of transport, dust off the treadly and join the annual RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride as it winds through Gippsland and onto the island, or compete in the Bass Hills Classic kicking off from Woolamai.

Island grooves
Usher in the New Year with the sounds of top-line international and local artists at the Pyramid Rock Festival, or dip your toes into the sublime grooves of the Phillip Island Jazz Festival.

Surf and turf
The coast is peppered with annual sailing, swimming and surfing competitions, while the fertile inland soils inspire a range of gardening, food and wine events. And what island would be complete without a pirate festival?
