Adorable penguins, the Motorcycle Grand Prix and tubular waves…not bad for a little farming community outside of Melbourne, huh? Phillip Island sits at the mouth of Western Port Bay near French Island. A thin channel is all that separates it from the mainland.
Spend time with the local animals in the Rhyll wetlands, head into Cowes for some grub or explore San Remo just across the bridge to the east. Whether you’re looking for a great weekend trip to tack onto a Melbourne holiday or a destination that can hold its own, get ready for some unforgettable selfies when our Phillip Island flights land!
Taxis and our car hire options are a great way to get around the island. Ferries will take you where cars dare not (like the bay). In total, the island is only about 100 sq. kilometres, so getting around on a bike is easy too.
Are you on flights to Phillip Island that touch down in the morning? Slap on some flippers and load up that tank, because Phillip Island is one of the most spectacular scuba diving locations in Victoria.
If you land in the afternoon, take a boat ride over to Churchill Island, a working Heritage Farm that was once inhabited by the Bunurong people. If you arrive in the evening, you might still catch the penguin parade at Summerland Beach or from The Nobbies.
Yes, we said penguin parade. As in a parade of penguins. If that doesn’t sell you on this place, we don’t know what will; you’ll have little tuxedoed cuties dancing in your dreams when you lay your head down at Phillip Island accommodation.
Want some time away from the crowds? Rhyll is a pretty little fishing village on the northeastern tip of the island where you can glimpse local and migratory birds before they fly off on adventures of their own.
