A Drive Through Phillip Island History:
A drive around the Bass Coast area is far more than a scenic trip through some of the most breathtaking coastal and hill country in Australia...its a trip back into the very earliest beginnings of the state of Victoria. And it is a trip any Melbourne motorist can complete in a day.
|Phillip Island is famous for its adrenalin pumping international motorcycle and car racing events.|
Motorbike enthusiasts from around the world converge on Phillip Island twice a year to see the big bikes in action at the Superbike World Championship and the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.
For car racing enthusiasts, enjoy the non-stop action of the V8 Supercars, Island Magic, Historic Car and other racing events.
Farmers Markets are held monthly on Churchill Island.
Woolamai Picnic Races are run regularly from November to February each year.
