Must do for your list of visiting places in phillip island. This place has awesome views and a nice boardwalk that takes you around the place to get awesome pictures and enjoy the high tides crashing into the rocks. There is also a nice center here with food, coffee, childrens play area etc. Highly recommended to go here while waiting... More

Beautiful area of Phillip Island with stunning views and an easy to manage boardwalk along the coast. Keep an eye out for the penguin nesting boxes everywhere as you may see one sticking its head out if you are lucky

one of the many lookout spot in phillip island, while it certainly has spectacular view it is also the most popular lookout (and where all the tour bus stop) so its very crowded and has to get in line to take a picture at a good spot. wind was exceptionally strong while we was there.

The Nobbies remind me of a lot of the areas along the PCH in the USA. Same sort of look and feel in a lot of ways. In the summer there is a lot of subtle of color because of the small flowers that coat the hillside. The area is and was when we were there exceedingly windy and cold.... More

My family went there before we go to penguin parade just for killing time. But it turned out that the view at the end of the boardwalk was really amazing!

On a last minute visit to Phillip Island, we followed the signs to The Nobbies Centre, having no idea what we were going to see. What we found was a spectacular seabird rookery on a point, being pounded by the sea and blasted by strong winds. It was awesome! The centre itself (building and kiosk) was not the real attraction,... More

We arrived about 9-30 and set off around the boardwalk. The numbers of seabirds (Terns/ Seagulls / Shearwaters) were amazing and we even saw 2 penguins - one in a nest and one under the boardwalk. The scenery is spectacular and the wildflowers were just starting to come out.The only downer was that we arrived back at the Cafe at... More

We had a great day for the Nobbies - fantastic sights. The centre is very well equipped with knowledge and a café. The indoor kids playroom was a big hit with my 3.5yr old!
