Best Melbourne Day Trips – Phillip Island

Best Melbourne Day Trips – Phillip Island

With the Queen’s birthday long weekend just around the corner, I reckon a perfect article for this week would be the kick off a new blog post series where I cover the best day trips out of Melbourne. I will be sharing my own personal favorite Melbourne day trips and may not necessarily conform to what the itenary recommended in popular Melbourne travel books. Many of these places could easily be extended to more relaxing weekend away. What better way to start of the series than to cover one of my top few favorite local holiday destinations – Phillip Island. There is so much things to see and do on this relatively small but beautiful island. A reasonable drive from Melbourne CBD of around 2 hours, it is also a very popular tourist destination. To make things really easy for you, here is my recommended day trip itinerary for Phillip Island. Pelicans at San Remo San Remo is actually a small village just before you hit the bridge that takes you over the water and onto Phillip Island itself. There is a flock of huge wild pelicans that like to hang around the wharf. It’s worth a quick stop for a photo opportunity. The best viewing by far is during the feeding time around noon when the pelicans congregate en-masse like clockwork awaiting their daily feed. But since this is a day trip we will skip that and move on to the island itself. If you are staying overnight in the area, you should definitely check this out. http://www.pelicanview.com.au/feeding-pelicans Phillip Island Chocolate Factory The kids will love this one!
