Phillip Island is only a short drive away. Most people think “penguins” when they hear the words “Phillip Island”, and whilst these cute little guys form an important part of the island’s fabric, there is much, much, more to do on Victoria’s favourite island!
The last mainland town before entering into the island is San Remo. Home to local pelicans, there is feeding time every morning. The kids will love it.
A must see wildlife experience, the Penguin Parade sees thousands of visitors to Phillip Island every year.
