5. Experience Victoria’s Heritage Churchill Island
This is another hidden gem of Phillip Island. The Churchill Island is just off coast of Phillip Islands and it is an important place in the history of European settlement in Victoria. If you never heard of this island, then you should visit here during your trip on Phillip Island.
The Churchill Island is the site of the first European agricultural pursuits in Victoria. The history of the farming on this island started since the 1850’s and in 1872 it was purchased by Samuel Amess, former Mayor of Melbourne.
This small island of 57 hectares offers a glimpse of historic working farm, farmhouse and cottage. This is old school European settlement that is well maintained and an eye opener for us.
You can pet the horses and milk the cows and also walk around the cottage gardens and lawns as well as the coastline walk that offers magnificent views of Phillip Island and Western Port.
The best way to visit Churchill Island is by self drive of course. Expect to spend a few hours here to enjoy and experience the scenery, the farm, the cottage and the history. For more info, please visit www.penguins.org.au and remember to get their package passes to save cost.
