Island has great nightlife with fantastic pubs, restaurants and cafes.
15 metres to nearest food store.
I explored the beaches and there is many to explore, if your a surfer then you will always find a wave somewhere along the way, not being a surfer myself is thinking of taking up the sport. I visited the Penguin sanctuary, learning how they live was very interesting. I visited the Koalas, the Heritage Village. Cowes is a nice place to visit with it's little shops and cafe's.
Join this one day tour from Melbourne and see our famous Penguin Parade, see unique wildlife and explore some of the best highlights that Phillip Island has to offer!
