Outdoor activities

Make the most of your island getaway by heading into the great outdoors. See the sights, get the blood flowing and discover Phillip Island at your own pace. Explore the endless beaches, wander through stunning landscapes and get up close to friendly local wildlife.

All at sea
Run through the shallows with the kids on a sheltered beach, cruise around the bay in a catamaran, or join a kayak adventure to see Rhyll Inlet's waterbirds. Catch an early morning wave at Woolamai Beach or try your skills at any one of the renowned breaks around the island, now a recognised National Surfing Reserve.

What a catch
Unleash your inner seadog with a day on the jetty at San Remo, Newhaven or Cowes and take home a fresh catch of fish to friends and family. For the ultimate angling adventure, cruise out into Westernport Bay on a fishing charter and reel in the catch of a lifetime.

Mangroves to cliff tops
With over 1800 hectares of nature parks, the outdoors never looked so good. Stroll or cycle through mangrove habitats and spot migratory wading birds arriving in huge numbers. For a bit more exercise and some fresh sea air, head to the coast and tackle a cliff top coastal walk.
