Being a beach vacation spot, the weather forecast in summer is cool and mild. Thousands of visitors come here to play, swim and relax near the beach areas of Phillip Island. While the Phillip Island beaches entertain the visitors in summer, the nature parks and other scenic spots are popular in spring due to the milder weather. With lower daytime temperatures and less afternoon showers, the weather in spring is pleasant and favourable for more outdoor fun and adventure.
For those visiting the fairy penguins when they come to shore in the evenings, please note that it can become very cold during the evening, so it is wise to bring coats and gloves. During summer, the evenings are pleasant, but can turn cool with the breeze coming of the ocean, so visitors are advised to bring cold weather clothing.
