The Forrest Caves of Phillip Island are a stunning natural attraction that have been formed over time due to the eroded cliffs – only accessible during low tide.

As you walk around the various formations, it is impossible not to marvel at the sheer intricate patterns that have carved the outline of the caves. You will also notice that there are different colours in the caves, resulting from the sun’s rays that filter through the structure.
The Forrest Caves are a perfect escape for anyone looking to get away from the main attractions and enjoy the sea breeze while discovering some of the island’s hidden gems. To get to the caves, make your way to The Cape Kitchen just off the main road on the island.
Take the steps from the car park and then take a left turn. You will pass by giant sand dunes along the way until you finally come across the caves. Depending on when you visit, look out for the thousands of short-tailed shearwaters that fly around the beach area during the warmer months of September to May.
