  • Hi, I am keen to get a group booking together for around 10 people coming from WA and NZ (to be confirmed) for the 2017 event. Looking for suggestions for a house or some apartments that are close to track or a shuttle bus system and bars and restaurants. What do you recommend?

    • Hi Mike, thanks for contacting us.

      Phillip Island is a small island, so any location you stay on the island will only be 10-15 minutes max to get to the circuit.

      That said, there are only a couple of lodging options that can accommodate up to 10 people. I have listed them here for you:
      1. Relax at Red Rocks – Located at Cowes on the north of the island, but has a number of bunk beds, full kitchen and separate living space.
      2. Kakalula – Also located at Cowes, with a number of twin, sofa and bunk beds, with kitchen and lounge.

      There are no shuttle bus services that run regularly on the island, so my best recommendation is to book your own mini-bus to get around the island. I have attached a link here for car hire in Victoria.

      As for bars and restaurants, Rusty Water Brewery Restaurant & Bar on the east of the island is good for a larger group and I personally love Gullivers Wine Bar & Eatery on the north of the island.

      I hope this is of assistance to you. I will update our page on the Phillip Island Classic as soon as the dates are confirmed for 2017.
