Newhaven Village Trail

A quaint little village off the grid, Newhaven is a seaside town located just over the bridge on Phillip Island. Offering the tranquil atmosphere of a picturesque seaside town, enjoy waterfront views as you stroll along the coastline, sit back, indulge in modern dining with bay views, and watch the sea go by. Newhaven's shopping precinct is a place to drop by and enjoy a coffee, pick up some local produce or browse a beautiful range of plants and gifts. Don’t forget to stop by the big wave to get a photo or enjoy a picnic in the park! If you are looking for the best local tips, stop by the Phillip Island Visitor Information Centre.
