The Nobbies

Take in an array of stunning sights and curious creatures at The Nobbies, a magnificent headland on the south-western tip of Phillip Island.

On the boardwalk
Stroll along the boardwalks around The Nobbies, absorbing coastal views at lookout points set amongst natural sea bird gardens. Be transfixed by the thundering blowhole, and keep your eyes out for a rare sighting of the iconic little penguins.

Seal rocks
Around one kilometre offshore from The Nobbies is Seal Rocks, home to Australia's largest colony of fur seals.

For a close look at the playful seals, take a wildlife tour into Seal Rocks. Watch these creatures as they sun themselves on the rocks, feed their young, wrestle, or flop into the cool water.

Inside the Nobbies Centre, you can zoom in on the seals using the state-of-the-art cameras. To learn more about the southern marine environment, check out the centre's other interactive displays, and then treat yourself to a snack in the onsite cafe.
