Phillip Island’s SkyTrail

Explore new heights with the SkyTrail.  Perfect for those who crave adrenaline and adventure, set 10 metres above ground, there are thirty-four challenges to overcome and it is filled with zig-zag challenges built on giant poles and platforms.  This park is one-of-a-kind, and you will find no other place like this in Victoria!

All participants are fitted with a state-of-the-art full body suit installed into an overhead track. Suitable for anyone over the height of 1.2 metres and a reasonable level fitness is required.

The SkyTrail is located at the A Maze’N Things (1805 Phillip Island Road, Cowes), a short 10-mins drive from our caravan park.

Catch a wave at Woolamai Beach, Smiths Beach and YCW Beach

With a number of renowned breaks around the island, it’s no surprise that Phillip Island is the proud home of Victoria’s only National Surfing Reserve. With a proud history dating back to the late 1950s, the Reserve’s motto is Share, Respect, Preserve and it is made up of four sites along the coast: Cape Woolamai, Smiths Beach, Summerland and Cat Bay.

Beginners can head to Smiths Beach and YCW Beach for some small waves, while more advanced surfers should check-out the world-class waves at Cape Woolamai – a local favourite with a number of quality beach breaks.

Take a walk around Cape Woolamai Circuit

Sometimes the best things in life are free. With over 1,800 hectares of nature parks across the island offering superb panoramas of the island, it’s the perfect excuse to get your walking shoes on.

If you have a few hours, we highly recommend the Cape Woolamai Circuit with three easy walking tracks over various distances, you can choose the one that suits you best. Cape Woolamai is the highest point on Phillip Island and the most southerly point with great sunrises and sunsets, a short 15-minutes drive from our caravan park.
