Amaroo Park
Ranked #1 of 19 Specialty Lodging in Cowes
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 15, 2011

A group of 4 stayed here for 2 nights! It is basic but I found it to be expensive for what you got! It does have a nice location and Cowes itself is lovely! The season hadn't started yet so it was fairly quiet and pubs shut very early 9/10pm! It is an excellent base if you intend on going to see the penguins etc and explore Philip Island!

Reviewed February 8, 2011

The YHA is part of a bigger holiday park just a short walk from the main area of Cowes.
Its a relaxing spot with a pool & dining & bar. The 4 bed I stayed in was a cabin with a bathroom & shower in a row of cabins near the office.
The holiday park has a range of cabins & some camping spots. It was clean & tidy & the staff were friendly & helpful with tips like to slam the lid on the #2 washing machine to make it work.
Great spot to stay on this side of Phillip Island.
