Everyone knows about Phillip Island, right?
They’ve got the famous penguin parade, the super-hot Hemsworth brothers Chris and Liam grew up here, and it’s the home of the world-renowned Grand Prix circuit.
But there are some amazing experiences on ‘The Island’ (as the locals call it) that you may not know existed. Here’s our top 5, with special offers for most available until the end of June 2018.
Scenic Flights and Seafood Delights
Fancy a helicopter flight to a crayfish lunch? It’s not something you’re going to do every weekend, but for a special occasion and to seriously impress, this one is the bomb!
If you don’t mind dropping a cool $630 for two to experience a luxurious lunch with a difference, then look no further than the Seafood Sensation aboard Phillip Island Helicopters.
Climb aboard your private helicopter and experience a flight to Wings & Fins Restaurant, Bar & Bistro (made famous on The Hotplate TV show). Dine on famously fresh Flinders Island seafood while taking in the gorgeous views of French Island.
Once you’ve had your fill, like a rock star hop back on board your helicopter for the scenic flight back to The Island.
