As the days go by
Cruise around the Phillip Island Touring Route to make the most of your island getaway. 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 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.
Journey beyond the island by following one of the many touring routes that take in Phillip Island and its surrounding regions. Experience the beauty and diversity along the South East Touring Route, which combines 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? See the vast wilderness around Wilsons Prom on the Penguins to Prom road trip. Head further east to join up with the Melbourne-Sydney Coastal Drive or the Gippsland Coastal Discovery Touring Route and take in Ninety Mile Beach and Croajingolong National Park.
To experience the best of bayside living, join the Bays and Surf Coast Touring Route that takes in Phillip Island, Mornington Peninsula, Geelong and the Bellarine, and the Surf Coast.
