The Top 5 Things to Do on Phillip Island

For an animal-centred day trip just outside of Melbourne city, grab a ride to Phillip Island and prepare to be blown away by the sheer beauty of the wildlife and scenery that’s on offer.

There’s plenty to get stuck into while you’re on the island, so here are some of the best ways to pass the time.

1. The Penguin Parade

Perhaps the most popular attraction on Phillip Island, the Penguin Parade lets visitors watch the colony of Little Penguins as they waddle up the beach after a long hard day of fishing. As well as observing the sunset parade, you can learn more about the cute critters in the visitors’ centre, where there are plenty of interactive and educational displays.

2. The Chocolate Factory

Got a sweet tooth? Hotfoot it to Panny’s Amazing World of Chocolate for a delectable day out. Here, you can join in with the interactive displays, learn how the local truffles are made, and even create your own, unique brand of chocolate.

3. Nobbies Centre

Explore the incredible scenery of Phillip Island at the Nobbies Centre, where you can soak up the breath-taking views of the surrounding coastal scenery. While on-site, you can take a stroll along the in-built boardwalk and discover the blowhole. Get educated, too, with insightful displays, and experience the nesting birds that choose this wild and rugged landscape to breed in. Before you go, grab a sighting of the largest fur seal colony in the country at Seal Rocks.

4. Phillip Island Circuit

Motor racing lovers will want to check out the Phillip Island Circuit. The track has played host to some of the most famous sporting events in the world, including Moto GP and the World Superbikes championship. While there, you can drive a go-kart around the circuit at high speed and get a tour of all the best spots.

5. Koala Conservation Centre

Get up close and personal with Australia’s cutest native creature at the Koala Conservation Centre. The eco-friendly attraction is dedicated to protecting and saving the koala population of Phillip Island, and you can learn more about the creature’s habitat, behaviour, and history. If the timing’s right, you can also watch the baby koalas taking their first adventure outside of their mother’s pouch.

The pristine beaches, wild coastline, and incredible animal encounters make Phillip Island the perfect backdrop for animal-centred encounters and adventures.
