Outdoor adventures on Phillip Island

Victoria’s Phillip Island is known for its huge colony and world’s smallest (and cutest) penguins, and plenty of other wildlife such as seals, koalas and wallabies, but it is also fast becoming known for its assortment of outdoor adventures on both land and sea. 

Phillip Island gives exciting offers on water-based pursuits as conditions are almost always suitable. The surf beaches along the island’s spectacular Southern coastline are some of Victoria’s best, so experienced surfers travel from all over the state to ride the famous long board break. 

A beginner’s can enjoy lesson in body-boarding or surf kayaking with a helpful and patient instructor from one of the island’s outdoor activities providers. The exhilaration of catching a wave is really special and can be achieved by even a complete novice. You’ll find it hard to wipe the smile from your face. On the northern side of the island the sheltered waters are perfect for a whole different range of activities, from the adrenaline filled to the sedate. New to the island this year is the exhilarating sport of fly boarding, where you hover above the water thanks to the powerful water jets. 

Some of the slightly more serene activities include stand-up paddle boarding or sea kayaking, snorkeling expedition in the shallows with stingrays, experience the gentle giants of the sea, afternoon of fishing, and boating access into the rich waters of Westernport. There 34 different climbing challenges up to 10 meters above the ground, but there’s no need to worry as your harness will keep you safe and sound.

The huge range of walking and cycling trails includes everything from woodlands and wetlands to stunning coastal scenery, and bike hire is available right across the island, 5km Park run for joggers which takes place every Saturday morning around Churchill Island, with participants of all abilities welcome.
