Explore an island playground full of family fun, friendly wildlife and natural wonders to create memories that will stay with you forever.
The little guys
Take a seat on the beach at sunset and experience the wonder of the famous Penguin Parade. Keep exploring with the family and wander the tranquil surrounds of the island's many wildlife attractions to get up close to seals, koalas, birds and wallabies. Head on down to the San Remo Fisherman's Co–op to take part in the pelican feeding, which occurs daily at 12 noon.
Wander the coastline and discover sheltered bays, big surf breaks, rugged dunes and sandy beaches, perfect for a spot of beach cricket. Families with little ones will love Cowes Beach for its safe swimming environment and close proximity to cafes and other amenities. So get out there and surf, swim and paddle in the clear waters, or just laze about under the shade of a beach tent.
Big kids and small
Let the kids loose in mazes, mini-golf courses and go-kart tracks. Fly over the island in a helicopter, fish for trout, or indulge yourself on a visit to the chocolate factory. For high-energy thrills, time your visit to get amongst the roaring engines of the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix or the V8 Supercars.
