From the high-speed thrills of the Moto GP and V8 Supercars to the rhythm and melody of local music festivals, there's a lot more to the island than just friendly wildlife and stunning coastlines. Soak up the island's festival atmosphere, join in at community activities, and get the whole family together at gatherings all year round.


Join motorbike enthusiasts from around the world as they converge on the famous Phillip Island Grand Prix track for the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix and World Superbike Championship.

Absorb the non-stop action and thunderous sounds of the V8 Supercars or slow down and check out the incredible machines on show at the Phillip Island Classic Car Festival of Speed – the largest historic car meet in the southern hemisphere.

Rhythm and melody

Usher in the New Year with the sounds of top-line international and local artists at the Beyond the Valley Festival, or dip your toes into the sublime grooves of the Phillip Island Jazz Festival.

Fun in the sun

The coast is peppered with annual sailing, swimming and surfing competitions, while the fertile inland soils inspire a range of gardening, food and wine events.

Learn about country life at the Phillip Island Small Farm and Lifestyle Expo, and join in the fun at annual ocean swims like the San Remo Channel Challenge, the Cowes Classic or the Phillip Island Penguin Swim Classic. Those that prefer to stay dry can just join in the seaside fun and mayhem of the Classics Weekend.
