A lovely multi colored mostly rock Island a few miles off shore. It was a fully vegetated Island at one point but pest species had to be eliminated and the lush greenery disappeared. It is slowly starting to return!

Autumn and winter are the best times to visit the Island. The koalas, wallabies, purple hens, cape barren geese, and of course the little penguins are all there. (The penguins come into shore earlier during winter,so rug up,-simply amazing.) Churchill Island has history, gardens, drysdale horses, sheep,cows,chooks--a working farm. The short walk right around the Island gives you fantastic views... More

We did a boat cruise around the 3 islands. Phillip Island is so beautiful, and it is great to see the regeneration of plant life occurring after the removal of feral animals.

There are no penguins - these are on Phillip Island which close to Melbourne, Victoria. Neither are their toilets or fuel outlets. Nothing. It's very beautiful and it can be seen as your aircraft is coming into land at... More

Having read the previous reviews for Phillip island, Norfolk Island, I am now confused and feel that the previous reviews were not for Phillip island Norfolk Island but instead for Phillip island Victoria. Phillip island, Norfolk Island does now have penguins, or koalas. There are no resorts or wineries. It is a very small uninhibited island 7km south of Norfolk... More
