Access for All - Phillip Island

Accessible Tourism is an important part of the Phillip Island experience. We intend to enable all people to participate in and enjoy our natural wildlife viewing experiences, beaches, trails, and attractions.

More people have access needs, whether or not related to a physical condition, which can become a huge obstacle when travelling or touring. Phillip Island enjoys an ever-increasing choice of accessible accommodation, attractions and shops with a wide range of facilities open to visitors, carers, and anyone who needs accessibility.

Throughout the website, we offer as much detail as possible so that you can make the best choice about how to get around, where to stay in comfort and what to see and do. You can choose your own speed here. Relax on the beach or take advantage of one of the many adventures with this accessible
