I loved this beautiful heritage island. Even a wall or picnic is music to the soul. Grey goose around you. Calm waters and green pastures. I would recommend this place to everyone who visit Phillip island

Churchill Island is a great tourist spot. Great for families with young children. Animals for them to see, sheep, Cowes, birds. Great walking track with beautiful views. Lovely restaurant to have a coffee or something to eat.

Nice place, but ruined by slow, grumpy, humourless staff. If you run a tourist attraction, remember that in the 21st century people will complain more.

This was a great surprise. Lovely restaurant with good views. Great old homestead to visit . Loved the sheep shearing demonstration , whip cracking , and sheepdog demonstration. Visitor participation was invited and made good entertainment. Well worth a visit when in Phillip Island

Don't go for the 'ice' skating. It's a really beautiful place to visit for a walk and a bit of history, and I would recommend that heartily, but the pop up 'ice' skating is really crap. It's not ice, it's plastic. It's a really small...More
