Another popular spot to visit in the Phillip Island Nature Park is The Nobbies. The Nobbies is well known for the magnificent views of Seal Rocks where you can see Australia’s largest colony of fur seals as they frolic, and relax on the rocky outcrops. Take a stroll down the boardwalk and admire some of the best lookouts on Phillip Island.
For visitors who want to get up close and personal with a koala, then the Koala Conservation Centre is the place for you. This park is unique as, unlike a zoo, the Koala Conservation Centre allows visitors to get the chance to see these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat. Here, you will see large acres of Australian bushland and grasslands which house an array of koalas, kangaroos, echidnas and bats.
Visitors to Phillip Island often also travel up to Churchill Island to visit the historic working farm which is open to the public. Visitors will see unique highland cattle, Clydesdale horses, ducks, sheep, chickens and peacocks. Apart from the farming activities, visitors can also enjoy visiting the heritage farm buildings and charming gardens. There are also a number of walking tracks around the island.
