DESCRIPTION

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Caldermeade Farm and Cafe, 4385 South Gippsland Highway, Caldermeade, Victoria 3984 Australia

You will have a chance to grab a freshly made coffee, some snacks for the road, and of course – pet the friendly baby animals!

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Cowes, Cowes, Phillip Island, Victoria

Cowes is Phillip Island’s main commercial hub, and is a bustling location of restaurants, cafes, breweries, and boutique shops.

Here you will have time to explore in your own time. 
Our guide will point out the notable spots, and then allow you some freedom to wander. 

Visit the ever popular brewery, take a seat at the pub overlooking the waterfront, take part in some retail therapy, take a stroll along the jetty, or even go for a dip in the sparkling blue waters.
The time is yours!

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Koala Conservation Reserve, 1810 Phillip Island Rd., Cowes, Phillip Island, Victoria Australia

This is an optional extra in place of your time at Cowes.
Our guide will drop you off here, and you’ll be able to wander among the beautiful native Australian bushland, where you are guaranteed to spot Koalas in their natural habitat, as well as plenty more native Australian Wildlife.
Please be aware, it is now illegal to touch or hold a Koala.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Phillip Island Winery, 414 Berrys Beach Rd, Ventnor, Phillip Island, Victoria 3922 Australia

Arriving into this beautiful estate, you’ll quickly realise why the Phillip Island Winery is a favoured spot for both locals and visitors alike.

Take part in a Wine Tasting Experience at the cellar door – tasting a range of different wines harvested throughout the Gippsland Region.
Accompanying your tasting is a delicious grazing board, full of meats, cheeses, breads, and other gourmet delights.

You will then indulge in a delicious winery feast, consisting of mouth-watering woodfired pizzas, sea-salted fries, and gourmet salads.

Take some time out to buy more wine, beers, or ciders should you wish – it’s a relaxed experience here.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Flynns Beach, 1019 Ventnor Rd, Summerlands, Phillip Island, Victoria 3922 Australia

One of the most beautiful beaches on Phillip Island, and iconic of golden sands and glistening waters found in these areas.
You will have a chance to walk in the soft sand, admire the beautiful horizon, and soak in the sea-air of this local beach – one that Chris Hemsworth himself has enjoyed since a young boy.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: The Nobbies Centre, 1320 Ventnor Rd, Summerlands, Phillip Island, Victoria 3922 Australia

This is already one of Phillip Island’s main attractions, simply for the sheer beauty it possess – however, we visit this stunning spot right on Golden Hour, allowing us a perfect sight over the glistening waters and rocky cliffs.

Enjoy this moment with a Glass of Sparking Wine and Canapes, as you enjoy the views and take  a walk along the boardwalk, taking in spectacular sights, and glimpses of native wildlife.

We depart from here along the back roads, providing us unparalleled views over Westernport Bay and Bass Strait, with even more wildlife to spot. 

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Phillip Island Nature Parks – Penguin Parade, 1019 Ventnor Rd Summerlannds Estate, Summerlands, Phillip Island, Victoria 3922 Australia

A “must do” whilst in Melbourne/Victoria, the Penguin Parade has long been the star attraction of Phillip Island. 

We arrive here early enough so as you can take some time in this world-class visitor centre, and grab a bite to eat from the cafe should you wish.

You will then make your way out to the Penguin Viewing Platform, awaiting the arrival of the stars of the shows – the Little Penguins.

As the sun begins to set, your ranger-guide will provide you information on these cute little creatures, and then you will see literally thousands of them make their way onto the beach and up the hill side.

Walk along the boardwalk as you get within inches of these native Australian Penguins, admiring their uniqueness and cuteness alike.

Once we have had our cuteness overload, we board back on the bus – making our way back to Melbourne…with plenty of good memories to accompany us for the journey back
