Phillip Island shines when it’s warm, dry and sunny
You'll most likely be spending a lot of time outdoors when you visit Phillip Island, so the ideal time to head there is between December – February in the heart of summer. Not only will the sun be shining, there is a great relaxed vibe as families and young surfers take advantage of Phillip Island’s natural wonders.
For endless family fun, Phillip Island is the ideal destination to take your kids with plenty of activities to keep them amused and more importantly, wear them out.
