Sunderland Bay Accommodation Phillip Island, Victoria

Sunderland Bay is not known for its accommodation options, as there are few, but many people travel here to swim on the beach. The surfing is also good at Sunderland Bay, where lifeguards patrolled some of the beaches in the summer months.

Regarding attractions, the Koala Conservation Centre is located only 5 minutes north of Sunderland Bay. This unique conservation park boasts large acres of Australian bushland and grasslands, which house an array of koalas, kangaroos, echidnas and bats. 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.

By staying in Sunderland Bay accommodation, you can easily access the renowned motor racing circuit in Phillip Island. Whether you plan for a guided tour or want to explore the history of motorsports, you will surely be on the island. Even the nearby famed Penguin Parade view-point at the Summerland Beach is a tourist attraction.

Sunderland Bay is only a short drive from the Grand Prix Circuit. If you want to get behind the wheel of a V8, then book a Hot Laps tour. Buckle in as you are taken on an adrenaline-pumping ride and feel the g-forces of V8 performance racing as you hurtle around the track. Or, if you are looking for a family-friendly activity, try go-karting around the track. Power around the scale replica of the famous Grand Prix Circuit and race your family or friends.
