How I spent my last full day in Australia – Phillip Island

Hey Friends,

I recently left my home country, Australia, again, for an indefinite amount of time. I am not sure when I will be back so I made an effort to make the most of my time there which was a challenge due to really shoddy weather (well, it was winter after all). I did manage to spend a lot of quality time with my family and friends, so I was very happy with that.

I chose to spend my last day at Phillip Island

On my last day, I said that I wanted to go somewhere super Australian (lol) with my family so we chose to visit our family favourite, Phillip Island. I frequented Phillip Island a lot as a child so I am very familiar with it. Without further ado… here are the places we visited and my favourite pictures from the day.

Cape Woolamai

Cape Woolamai is well-known for its rock formation, ‘The Pinnacles’ which is depicted below, this is a hot spot for pro and amateur photographers alike. This beach is an amazing place to take a walk (from relaxing to more challenging) and it is a popular place to surf, which was incredible to watch.

The Nobbies

The Nobbies is a short and sweet coastal walk, along a boardwalk providing stunning ocean views. I wrote a more detailed blog post about The Nobbies last year if you are thinking about visiting it yourself.

Flynns Beach – Summerlands

Flynns beach is another popular surf spot – so it is a great place to surf or spectate. It is also a lovely place to take a walk.

Food Recommendation

We visited Mad Cowes in Cowes, of course, for lunch. They have a great variety of delicious and fresh meals to choose from, I definitely recommend stopping by if you are after a tasty bite to eat.

Thanks to my parents for sharing a wonderful day with me on the island. I, of course, I highly recommend visiting Phillip Island, it is an underrated gem for sure!

Until my next post…

Mikki 🙂
