I love a good opportunity to take scenic photos. Pick the right weather coming here and you will get some epic shots as there is a lot of different vantage points. If there is a decent swell the waves crashing against the rocks will make...More
Head to the Nobbies Boardwalk for an amazing coastal viewing. This is the last stop before your penguin parade later in the evening. If you worry about the weather, there's a store here to buy ponchos.
We visited The Nobbies to view the rugged coastline, the seals and the spectacular blowhole. A wonderful bonus that we did not anticipate was that we could view and photograph penguins in their burrows up close and personal. This is not possible at the Penguin...More

Thanks for your visit and review. It is a very special area and dedicated to the protection of Phillip Island's wildlife. We are so pleased you enjoyed it.
We had a ranger take us around the Nobbies Centre and that was a great way to view this place. She told us all about the area and pointed out the important things to see. She knew all about the plants and animals and was...More
A beautiful tourist place at the end of Phillip Island. The view was spectacular and we were lucky to be there on a sunny spring day. The centre has a bridge that is also kid safe and friendly. the landscape is awe-inspiring - explosions of...More
The weekends would be the most busy of the week. You are best to go as early as possible to the centre to avoid the daily tourist buses. Grand Prix motor racing on this weekend so don't even go - traffic to get on and off... More

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. It’s only 19 AUD
per adult which includes a bag of food for the residents. You can see koalas, snakes, wombats, owls, dingos, cassowary and many more. The wallabies hop freely around the park and will feed from your hand. There’s also a huge paddock containing emus and kangaroos which you can wander around at your leisurely whilst feeding the animals. Fantastic, definitely worth a visit.
