Phillip Island is located 140km off the coast, south east of Melbourne. It is fantastic for a getaway; whether it’s a day trip or a couple day stay. With activities and attractions for everyone, you’ll enjoy your time at Phillip Island.
Romance lingers for couples when they head to the wineries and restaurants for all budget types. Local markets and farms are great for fresh produce, art and crafts. Otherwise take the family and enjoy a day at the beach or interact with the wildlife with the many tours and animal conservatory’s available. Can you find your way out of the outdoor maze? Or maybe you are better at knocking the pins down at bowling?
The Island is renowned for its penguins so don’t miss the penguin parade and a chance to view them with Gray line tours, Australia’s favourite tour company! If you like all things sweet, enter the chocolate factory and see how your sweets are made.
With major events being hosted on the Island, you’ll want to keep up-to-date! Motorsport is commonly held around the track along with festivals and night markets. With so much to do for any age or interest, you’ll enjoy being ‘overseas’. And with only a drive to Melbourne City, it’s an easy getaway.
Only doing a day trip? Stay city central instead with your Melbourne accommodation and relax during your holiday in comfort and style. Stay in the heart of it all with the Melbourne hotel, Rydges Melbourne and enjoy dining at the Locanda Restaurant & Bar. You’ll love the menu created by the Executive Chef, Paul Griffiths.
