Relax at Phillip Island

Are you looking for an island destination with fun activities and breathtaking natural beauty? Then Phillip Island is the answer.

From Thrifty Melbourne it's around 2 hours drive through beautiful landscape until you reach the tranquil area known for its laid back beach lifestyle.

Things to see and do

Whether you visit Phillip Island for relaxation or adventure, there will be something to fulfill your holiday appetite, including helicopter flights, kayaking, fishing, boating and plenty more. If you love nature, then the Australian Garden is a must, with an array of native plants and lush gardens to meander.
Phillip Island is a great place to bring the kids thanks to the many animal reserves, such as the Koala Conservation Centre and Maru Koala and Animal Park.
Many holiday-goers visit Phillip Island to see the humpback whale migration that starts in June, so keep your eyes peeled for these majestic sea creatures. You can get up close by going on one of the coastal cruises or a helicopter flight. The area is also known for its cute penguins that waddle home at sunset after a hard day of fishing.
