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.

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.
