The Nobbies is a lovely view, but everything else isn't worth visiting. We went to the Nobbies as we were told they had a great cafe for lunch and that the Arctic adventure was great. The cafe was so over priced that it cost $65...More

The sight is so scenic with the blue waters and green lands. Romantic place to be while walking hand to hand with your better half. A bit long walk but it pays to stroll while enjoying the view.

The centre itself has a great exhibition layout and with the AR interactive screen as a huge plus with definitely informative displays all around. The cafe has an amazing view while the coffee and hot chocolate is good. The outdoor boardwalk is amazing. A must...More

Great coastal boardwalk to a spectacular viewpoint. It’s not a long route but we’ll worth it. We where there on a blustery winter day with blue skies - fantastic.

We drove up to the Nobbies Centre to see the Antarctica Journey. It was part of the four park pass - great value - even better discount being a RACV member. We knew there were tours on at 11am so we were there well and...More

We had some time to kill after visiting the racing circuit and a few of the beaches. We looked at the rugged scenery from the cafe here. We didn't visit the Antartica experience but drove back along the coast road for the Penguin Parade. At...More

Stunning view of the coastline from the boardwalk. I’d recommend taking your time whilst taking in the views, all the way to the blowhole. Great experience, I’d give the Antarctic experience a miss - utter waste of time!

The penguin parade is an evening activity as they don’t come ashore until dusk, around 830pm. The koala place is ok but if you want real interaction with some of Australia’s animals visit the Phillip Island wildlife park... More
