Phillip Island

Nature and wildlife abound on Phillip Island, a family-friendly getaway less than two hours from Melbourne and home to the famed Penguin Parade.

San Remo is the gateway to Phillip Island, boasting the local fishing co-op with its fresh lobsters and curious pelicans. The first stop on the island is the small village of Newhaven, a popular place for fishing from the pier. A stone's throw away is Cape Woolamai and its rugged clifftops and excellent surf beach. Churchill Island is a living local history lesson, while the quiet village of Rhyll offers opportunities to view koalas at close range and to see exotic migratory birds.

Cowes, the main commercial centre on Phillip Island, is home to the world famous Grand Prix circuit and hosts the annual Moto GP and V8 Supercars. The town's cafes, pubs and restaurants buzz over summer and during events. The north-facing main beach entices families for swimming, picnics and cycling.

No trip to Phillip Island is complete without a visit to the seal colonies lolling on the rocks off The Nobbies, and the famous Penguin Parade at Summerland Beach for the experience of watching little penguins making their way up the beach at sunset.
