Touring routes

Make Phillip Island your destination and the rest will follow. Natural wonders, wildlife and island attractions are all within easy reach.

All in a day
Travel time between the island's great attractions is rarely more than fifteen minutes, which puts you in the box seat for a fulfilling day, or more, of sightseeing. Take in some water sports and within a few minutes find yourself at a chocolate tasting or getting lost in a maze.

Take a day out of your Phillip Island holiday, or come up from Melbourne to drive around and see all the sights. Explore magnificent coastal scenery, catch a few waves, visit the Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit and see birds, seals, and the iconic Little Penguins on their nightly parade.

And beyond...
Explore beyond the island by following the South East Touring Route. Combine Phillip Island's famous marine life with the indulgence of the Mornington Peninsula, and the wineries and wildlife of the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges.

Looking for a bigger adventure? Head south east and join up with the Melbourne-Sydney Coastal Drive. See the vast wilderness around Wilsons Prom, walk the endless stretch of sand on Ninety Mile Beach, and explore Croajingolong National Park.
