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

We visited this island and had a great time. There’s so much space that you don’t ever feel crowded. They provide the kids with a map and questions to complete a final clue which kept them very interested and entertained. The only negative was the...More

We spent nearly four hours at the farm despite a string cold wind. I would recommend taking a picnic because the grounds are just perfect for a picnic. Farm type activities are in the afternoon.

Lot's of things to see and do. When we were there we were lucky enough to hear a very interesting talk about the reintroduction of the barred bandicoot back onto Phillip Island and to see a couple of them.
