On Phillip Island holidays you can expect the perfect combination of adventure, exploration, relaxation and stunning scenery. Filling up your days is easy to do, with an abundance of museums, galleries, wildlife parks, wineries and beaches to explore.

Outdoor enthusiasts can hop in a kayak and travel by boat along the various waterways and the coastline that surround Phillip Island. Adventurous souls can make use of some of the best surfing beaches in Australia, such as Woolamai. Woolamai is made up of three surf beaches: The Colonnades, Anzacs and Woolamai/Magic Lands. However, these beaches offer much more than outdoor sports, as they’re also excellent spots for bird watching, swimming, taking enjoyable strolls, and sunbathing.

Phillip Island holidays boast stunning natural beauty

Phillip Island is steeped in diversity, making it the ideal holiday location for couples, families and solo travellers. Phillip Island accommodation caters to a range of travellers, from small and cosy hotels to luxury five-star hotels, all within close proximity to breath-taking scenic beaches. 

If you’re staying in Cowes then be sure to take a trip to Phillip Island Wildlife Park, which is only 1.2 miles from the centre. Set within 60 acres, Phillip Island Wildlife Park is home to over 100 different Australian animal species. Not only do you get to see the incredible animals, you also can feed and pat some too, including kangaroos and wallabies who are free to roam the grounds.

Australia is a long flight from the UK, making it the perfect place to explore and spend a longer holiday down under. Choose one of our mult-icentre holidays. You can easily pair your Phillip Island holiday with a trip to Melbourne. Alternatively, choose a multi-city pairing and explore Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide as well. Talk to one of our Destination Specialists to make the perfect tailor-made holiday just for you.

“Animal lovers of all kinds should head to Churchill Island Heritage Farm. The farm is on a small island that is connected to Phillip Island via a bridge. The island is a working farm where you can take part in the daily chores, such as milking cows and shearing sheep.”

“Another gem in Phillip Island is the Grand Prix Circuit, where you can get a taste for speed as you race around the circuit. And for kids there’s the exciting electronic games room, which is sure to keep them busy for a few hours.”
