Thrill your delegates with an island-getaway-conference at Phillip Island.
Just a 90-minute drive from Melbourne, Phillip Island packs a powerful catalogue of possibilities into its 100 square kilometre footprint. World-class nature and ecotourism experiences prevail in this unique natural environment.
Come for the famous nightly penguin parade and stay for a Seal Rocks cruise, an encounter with masses of migratory birds in the wetlands zone or a visit to the Koala Conservation Centre. Nearby French Island’s 1,500-strong koala population is just a ferry ride away.
Rugged surf beaches contrast with tranquil, sandy swimming spots and tour operators will equip your team for kayaking, mountain biking or board riding.
Wannabe speed demons will drool over the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit. There’s a calendar of premium motorsport action including MotoGP and V8 Supercars events and a chance to hot lap in a race car or face-off to one another on the go-kart track.
And the young at heart in your group will thank you for adding A Maze’N Things and the Phillip Island Chocolate Factory to the group to-do list.
The built environment is as inviting as the natural one. Accommodation options include resorts and conference centres, beachside apartments, cosy B&Bs and budget group accommodation.
As you’d expect, the seafood is divine and there’s an abundance of local island produce to be savoured at the many restaurants, cafés and gourmet takeaway outlets, many of them clustered in the seaside holiday havens of Cowes, Newhaven and San Remo.
Welcome to your island paradise, team.
