Where to stay in Cowes

About Cowes

Phillip Island’s main township, Cowes delivers a relaxed seaside vibe with alluring beaches and waterfront restaurants, offshore sailing boat adventures and adorable little penguins. History and culture greet you in a variety of museums and art galleries, while the island’s golf course, Grand Prix circuit and day spas provide a wide range of activities.

Things to do

Head down to the beachfront esplanade in Cowes, which is dotted with seafood and international restaurants, chic cafes and charming boutiques. It overlooks an inviting beach of soft sand and calm, sheltered waters. It’s also a great place for water sports, such as kayaking, kitesurfing and stand-up paddleboarding.

Interested in the region’s history? Visit the Churchill Island Heritage Farm, a 19th-century working farm with ancient Moonah trees, centuries-old farming techniques, historic buildings and heritage gardens. Duck into the Phillip Island Historical Society Museum, which boasts exhibits on Indigenous culture, early settler life, maritime history and the area’s geology.

Nature lovers will enjoy the Koala Preservation Centre, home to winding boardwalk trails that let you see koalas, wallabies, bats and echidnas up close in their natural habitat. If you want a different perspective of Phillip Island, jump about an EcoBoat Tour and admire the island’s secluded coves, dramatic headlands and coastal towns from the water.

Treat the kids to a fun round of mini golf at Grumpys Crazy Golf or share plenty of laughs at A Maze ‘N Things, known for its epic maze, optical illusions and challenging puzzles. Don’t miss seeing the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, which is most exciting during the annual Grand Prix race, but also hosts go-karting and public racing events.

Getting around

You can drive to Cowes in under two hours from Melbourne using a bridge that connects Phillip Island to the mainland. Cowes is serviced by public buses, but it’s easier to use your own vehicle to get around.
