Phillip Island Day Tour
Hike the highest point of Phillip Island and meet local wildlife from fur seals to penguins at Cape Woolamai.
Our Cape Woolamai hike guides you through rugged rock formations, known as the Pinnacles, as we make our way to the highest point of Phillip Island. Here you’ll witness stunning views over the coastline and pounding surf below. After our hike we drop into the gorgeous Island Whole Foods Cafe for brunch and take some time to explore the coastal township of Cowes. Next, we make our way to The Nobbies for an easy stroll along the boardwalk to discover impressive coastline views and the famous thundering blowhole. This area is home to Australia’s largest seal colony, little penguins and silver gulls – so have your cameras ready, it’s a wildlife lover’s dream!
