Phillip Island is an Australian Island about 125 km (78 mi) south-southeast of Melbourne, Victoria.
Synonymous with penguins and petrolheads, Phillip Island attracts a curious mix of holidaymakers and tourists.
At its heart, the island is still a farming community, but nature has conspired to turn it into one of Victoria´s most popular tourist destinations.
Apart from the major draws of the Penguin Parade and the annual Motorcycle Grand Prix, there´s rich Indigenous history here (the Boon Wurrung people are the traditional custodians), as well as abundant bird life and fauna. In the Bunwurrung language the island is known as corriong or millowl.
