3.Explore The Nobbies and Phillip Island Nature Parks’ Antarctic Journey

The Nobbies is the hidden gem of Phillip Island. The brand new Phillip Island Nature Parks’s Antartic Journey is located at the same location too.

This area is located near the Penguin Parade and that’s why self drive is important so you can drive anywhere you like. Mobility is important on Phillip Island and you can really spend some time here at The Nobbies.

There are boardwalks and lookout points here and also natural sea bird gardens. What the websites didn’t tell you is there are little penguin nests under the platform. That’s why we said this place is a hidden gem.

If you want to take picture of them, please don’t use flash. Respect the nature and the animals as flash will blind them.

4.Go Surfing at Woolomai Beach

If you are a big fan of surfing, you should bring your surf board here. This beach is dangerous and strictly for surfing only. Swimming is highly not recommended here and life guards are only available here for selected days and times.

However, the rough sea here is a great place for surfing and we are sure many surfers will enjoy the high tides here.
