    Phillip Island is about 26kms long by 9kms wide, is big enough to create that characteristic holiday atmosphere. George Bass discovered the island in January 1798, ten years after the first fleet arrived in Sydney. He named the island after Captain Arthur Phillip, the first governor. The magnificent 97 kilometre coastline transforms from massive rocky outcrops to sheltered golden beaches which face Westernport Bay, the surf coming off Bass Strait attracting some of Austria's top surfers. Renowned for its amazing wildlife, including the world famous Little Penguins, Koalas, Seals and over 200 species of birdlife which inhabit or migrate to the island. To complement the natural attractions, visitors will find days filled with interesting, enjoyable things to see and do, including many outstanding man made attractions, cinema, art, cruises, water sports, historic places of interest, speciality shops, dining in the many fine restaurants. Phillip Island is most famous for the nightly parade of Little Penguins, International Motorcycle and Car Racing Events, beautiful beaches, an incredible rugged coastline, flora and fauna, and all the facilities one would expect from a world class tourist destination.
