Phillip Island is only a short drive from the cosmopolitan city of Melbourne and so is a popular day tour destination for many visitors to Australia and also for the local population.
Many could say the main attraction of Phillip Island is the Penguin Parade where each night at sunset the fairy penguins wander up the beach to the delight of onlookers.
But Phillip Island has so much more to offer the visitor with its raw natural beauty and stunning coastline.
The beaches are just to die for and the waves that roll in straight off the southern ocean make it a fabulous surfing spot as well.. Pack your wetsuit though as the water can be a little on the cool side.
Of course Phillip Island also has a famous motor racing circuit and is often host to the MotoGP bikes and V8 supercars.. .. It is a favourite place for racing Legend Mick Doohan.
Phillip Island has many accommodation choices from mainstream hotels to funky B & B’s so check out our pages and book a few days.. or more….
