Visit Victoria Day 4: A Maze N Things, San Remo’s Fisherman’s Co-op, Heritage Farm at Churchill Island and Dinner at Taylors Waterfront Restaurant
What are the things to do in Philip Island? It is not just about watching the Penguin Walk as there are many other things to do. The first stop on Philip Island is A Maze N Things.
A Maze N Things
At A Maze N Things you can marvel at the mental confusion of objects defying gravity, rooms flooding without getting wet, a huge magic tap floating in mid air, or giant people shrinking into tiny versions of their former selves.
This is an amazing place for family and friends. There are lots of games where interactions are needed. I loved some of the gravity rooms and some of the mind blogging games. When I thought I’ve seen it all, I was so wrong.
With more than 20 years existence in Philip Island, A Maze N Things is a must visit place in Philip Island.
This place is great for couples, family and friends and you can spend real quality times here. There are many activities here and trust me you have no regrets visiting this place.

Many might not know this but there is another island near Philip Island. It is called the Churchill Island. It just minutes of driving from Philip Island.
Heritage Farm at Churchill Island
Step back in time to this historic island. Churchill Island features historic buildings, working farm, heritage gardens, walking tracks, whip cracking and much more.
You get to see the “old vintage” Victoria here with farms and houses. If you are into vintage photography, this is the place you should visit.
You can easily spend half day at Churchill Island, there were activities available all day long.
The special thing about this island is the heritage houses and some of the activities available such as cow milking and etc. Wind the clock to the old days and experience the old colonial houses environment on the island. For kids, visit the animal farm and see the horses, ducks, pigs, chickens and etc.
The Nobbies Centre is Australia’s newest marine attraction. Explore and discover the secrets of the incredible southern marine environment including seals, sharks and dolphins via interactive displays and cameras that allow you to zoom in and out on these marine creatures. This area offers spectacular coastal scenery, viewing of the offshore seal colony at Seal Rocks and the chance to walk amongst nesting seabird colonies.
We actually found the little fairy penguins or little penguins near the nobbies. These are wild penguins and exactly the same ones you pay to see for Penguin Walk.
I always recommend Nobbies to my friends who want to visit Philip Island. The view here is spectacular and enjoy the breeze here.
We didn’t get off Philip Island yet as we go for another dinner session on the island.
Dinner at Taylors Waterfront Restaurant
Taylors Waterfront Restaurant, a well known local restaurant.
Taylors is one of the most popular restaurants on Philip Island. We ordered the seafood platter that comes with a huge lobster and generous amount of seafood. With a few glasses of Philip Island’s own wine, 2005 Nobbies Pinot Noir, the evening was marvelous!
