Churchill Island is the perfect place for a walk with small children. Accessible via a narrow bridge from Newhaven on Phillip Island. If you are lucky you will see lambs frolicking and cattle grazing in the paddocks as you drive to the parking area. Kids love it!
Look out for Cape Barren Geese and their chicks.
Access the Island loop walks from the top LHS of the carpark or from the RHS of the lavender field behind the Visitor Centre. Walk maps are available at the information centre.
There is an admission fee to the Historic Homestead and Heritage Farm which features farming demonstrations like milking a cow and working dogs.
Churchill Island opening hours: Daily 10am – 5pm
