Phillip Island Accommodation 

Phillip Island Victoria is known as the home of the penguins but there is so much more.  Come and visit to see Koalas, Cape Baron Geese, The Nobbies, the Grand Prix,  Koalas, and stunning beaches that includes calm ocean and a ripper surf.

To see all of these attractions that are located throughout the Phillip Island takes more than a day to see, so you need to come and stay. Phillip Island accommodation recommends the very best places to stay whether you are after a motel, a B&B, holiday park or just pure luxury, we have it here.

But if you are after a more relaxed type of break, then there are cruises, helicopter flights, great scenery, fine dining, cocktails, tapas, wineries and even breweries.

Everything is here for your next wonderful holiday exploring all the delights of Phillip Island.

But choosing what type of accommodation you want when you come here is the toughest decision. There are all types of accommodation Phillip Island available but be aware that Phillip Island is a very popular destination, so you will need to book early to secure your dream holiday.
