Didn't know what to expect, but well impressed with locale. Plenty wildlife to be seen along the road to the centre. Take the alternative coastal path/roadway back from centre to the Penguin Parade and your guaranteed to see even more wildlife.

Great headland with boardwalk walk. Really pleasant and easy walk. Don'tb expect to see any of the 20,000 seals purported to live here - they're miles away on the rocks. The centre is great for families, the interactive areas are very good. Also the cafe...More

Waste of money. Not sure who designed i5, it was made to make money only, this place has nothing. Better spend time watching sunset on beach.

Great views, no cost and an easy to walk boardwalk with just a few steps. Such a shame the view of the seals isn’t closer but totally understandable

Personally this place is very interesting for an adult but I feel more in tune with school aged children. It has a great theatre where you can interact with the animals on a big screen. There is a café and a shop for all your...More

At the most western tip you will encounter this breath taking scenery. Outside there is a boardwalk which gives you views of the sea rocks. It is fairly exposed so wrap up warm. Inside you can warm up in the cafe or gift shop and...More

Really windy and cold in the cooler months. They serve coffee and food. You can see the seals using binoculars, walk the boardwalks to view penguin burrows and if lucky which we were see a penguin in the burrow.

We visites the Nobbies Centre to enjoy the great view from the cliff over the nobbies. The facitities are good. A big car park and easy access. The center itself was not that attractive to us. To commercial.

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
