The Seaside Township of Cowes, Phillip Island

< back

Cherished by locals and tourists alike, the covered roadway through the township of Cowes, Phillip Island, attracts attention and provides an air of familiarity for many who must have holidayed in the area for decades. Even though some parts of the town reflect the demands of a million visitors a year, it's still very country, and we found a clean Motel room with it's own facilities, and an evening meal throw in for just $60!

Mind you, the old Isle of Wight Hotel, is due to be replaced by a five star resort sometime soon. This change is bound to cause some anxiety for the lovers of the township of old, when the gravel road snaked it's way through the fields.

Cowes is perfect for a family holiday because at any time of the year there are affordable restaurants and safe beaches. The mild climate and proximity to Melbourne, about two hours away by road, enable many day-trippers to enjoy the surfing, swimming and sightseeing all year round.
