Overview

Family activities

The perfect holiday destination for those with kids in tow, Phillip Island boasts an endless array of things to see and do. Explore this island playground full of family attractions, friendly wildlife and natural wonders to create memories that will stay with you forever.

Nature's kids

Take a seat on the beach at sunset and experience the wonder of the famous Penguin Parade and then get close to koalas on a wander along the treetop boardwalks of the Koala Conservation Centre.

Keep exploring the tranquil surrounds of the island with the family. Watch native birdlife in the Rhyll wetlands, get close to kangaroos and wallabies at the Phillip Island Wildlife Park, and see seals at play on a wildlife cruise. Head on down to the San Remo Fisherman's Co–op to take part in the pelican feeding, which occurs daily at 12 noon.

Beachcombers

Wander the coastline and discover sheltered bays, big surf breaks, rugged dunes and sandy beaches, perfect for a spot of beach cricket. Families with little ones will love Cowes Beach for its safe swimming environment and close proximity to cafes and other amenities. So get out there and surf, swim and paddle in the clear waters, or just laze about under the shade of a beach tent.

Big dreams, big noise

Let the kids loose in mazes, mini-golf courses and go-kart tracks. Fly over the island in a helicopter, fish for trout, or indulge yourself on a visit to the chocolate factory. For high-energy thrills, time your visit to get amongst the roaring engines of the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix or the V8 Supercars.
