General Information about Cowes

Celebrate life by the water and soak up the seaside holiday vibe in Cowes, Phillip Island's commercial hub, which positively bustles during the holiday season. Allow extra time in Cowes to explore the many nearby attractions, including the iconic Penguin Parade and the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit Visitor Centre. Visit the island at race time to experience the speed and excitement of the Superbike World Championship, the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, or one of the many motor sport events held throughout the year.

Hire a boat from the Cowes launch and catch a fish to barbeque beachside or join a cruise around the bay and get a close look at the cute inhabitants of Seal Rocks. Want to go further? Catch the ferry over Western Port to Stony Point on the Mornington Peninsula or on to French Island.

General Information about Newhaven

Stroll along Newhaven's waterfront and absorb the atmosphere of this picturesque seaside village. Cast a line and catch the family dinner, picnic by the bridge or grab your board and hit the waves.

Spend a day in chocolate heaven at the chocolate factory then relax into an aromatherapy massage. Continue the Zen at Bonsai Island with the art of bonsai for beginners and experts alike, and then finish the day amidst the warm hospitality of a local B&B or an eco-friendly resort.
