Resting on the northern coast of Philip Island, Cowes is sandwiched between a coast and a forest.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Cape Woolamai Beach and Safety Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Grumpys Crazy Golf and Pyramid Rock. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cowes: Swim with Dolphins (in Sorrento), Maru Koala and Animal Park (in Grantville) and Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park (in Pearcedale). And it doesn't end there: step off the mainland to explore Koala Conservation Centre, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at The Nobbies Centre, tour the pleasant surroundings at Phillip Island Wildlife Park, and learn about all things military at National Vietnam Veterans Museum.
