7.Meet the Koalas at Koala Conservation Centre
Your trip to Australia is in complete if you never meet the Koalas up close and personal. For your info, every state in Australia has different rules on wildlife and in Victoria, you are not allowed to touch or pet Koalas.
Why you should be here?
The Koala Conservation Centre’s is nothing like you have experience before. First of all, it is not a zoo so the koalas here are not caged in metal cages. The koalas here say in their natural habitat like in the wild.
For the Koala Eco-Explorer Tour, an experience ranger will lead you to understand more about Koalas. Here, there are boardwalks for koala viewing as well as the view of the natural eucalypt woodland. You will have chance to go up, close and personal with koalas for sure.
Remember, no touching but you can selfie with them on distance. Thus, since this is a natural habitat, it is high chances you will other Australia cuties such as wallabies, possums and echidnas. It all depends on your luck but most likely you will bump to one of them. If you bump to snakes then its jackpot.
This is a fun place to visit and especially for kids. You need to see Koala once in your lifetime and this is an ideal place to do so. For more info, visit http://penguins.org.au/ and remember to get their package passes to save cost.

8.Get Amazed at A Maze’N Things
After visiting the Koala Conservation Centre, you go opposite and visit the A Maze’N Things. This is one of the most unusual attractions in the world.
A Maze’N Things is a combination of activities that will trick your eyes and mind, cool activities, 3D artworks as well as a real maze!
We won’t go details on the things in A Maze’N Things as we highly recommend you to visit this place. The whole experience should be less than an hour except you got stuck in the maze.
This place is a fun place for couples, group of friends and families. Like we mentioned, there is probably a few of this type of attractions in the world and this is not a 3D museum.
This is one of the must visit places on Phillip Island and would love your feedback for your visit. Thus,
Magic Manor is coming to A Maze’N Things in 2016. For more info, visit http://www.amazenthings.com.au/

9.It is all about the Pelicans at San Remo Beach
There are two things about Pelicans at San Remo Beach. Firstly, it is the fishermen feeding the pelicans on the beach and the Pelican View – The San Remo Fisherman’s Co-Operative Restaurant.
The Pelican Feeding is a daily affair, every day at noon on the beach next to the Pelican View. This is a daily free event and everyone is welcome here. However, we missed the Pelican Feeding but we spotted one pelican swimming away.
After you finish with the Pelican Feeding, time for lunch and the best place of course is the Pelican View restaurant.
The restaurant is established in 1948 and it is located at the San Remo pier. There is also a free museum next to the restaurant but we didn’t make it on our last visit.
You should try the food here. You can taste the freshness of the local seafood here. The price is reasonable and the taste is not too bad too. The menu of the day depends on the catch of the day. Your trip to Phillip Island will be incomplete without a feast of seafood.

10.Chillax, Eat and Stay at The Cowes
The Cowes is the last place of interest in our list. At the Cowes, there is beach, restaurants and accommodations.
Unlike the surf beach of Woolomai Beach, the beach at the Cowes is more suitable for swimming as the sea is calmer here. Thus, this is great for families and friends to chill, relax or the swim here.
You can also find restaurants at The Cowes. They offer good local food as well as seafood. Remember to try some of the Victorian produce beer here. You can get beautiful view of the Cowes Beach here and also the cool breeze of the winds from the sea.
For accommodations, there is a few for you to choose from in The Cowes. We strongly recommend you to stay on Phillip Island for at least one night so you can discover all the places of interests we recommended. Thus, by self drive it is easier to drive around Phillip Island and Victoria. It is also cheaper to self drive in Victoria.
