First you will stop at the famous Brighton Beach Boxes for some happy snaps, then head to Maru Koala Wildlife Sanctuary to get up close to these famous native animals. Your small group Cape Woolamai hike guides you through rugged rock formations, known as the Pinnacles, as you make your way to the highest point of Phillip Island. Here you’ll witness stunning views over the coastline and pounding surf below. After our easy/moderate 4.22-mile hike we will head into Cowes for a delicious lunch at the famous Island Whole Foods Cafe. Next, you make your way to the Nobbies for an easy stroll along the boardwalk to discover impressive coastline views and the famous thundering blowhole.
