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. The outdoor Maze’n’Things, wildlife cruises, Churchill Island Heritage Farm and Rhyll Trout and Bush Tucker Farm are just a few options at your fingertips. If you visit during school holidays, there will be plenty of other kids out and about…you may hardly see yours at all!
