Clise to Melbourne with many places to visit. People are friendly with shops of all kinds around. The highlight of Phillips Island is A mazing things, the pyramid rock, penguins, Koala parks.. etc.

You can buy tickets at the counter. However if you buy 3 parks pass which includes Koala Conservation Sanctuary, Penguin Parade and Churchill Island you will save some $s as it is cheaper to buy them together.
