Getting Here:

  • From Melbourne to Phillip Island:

Once you have got on to the Monash Freeway (M1) continue on until you reach the Cranbourne exit, here you will turn left on to the South Gippsland Freeway (M420). Follow this route to the South Gippsland Highway (M420), which will bring you to the Lang-Lang area. Here you will cease following the South Gippsland, instead continue on to the Bass Highway (A420) and through to the Anderson roundabout. Turn right here and you will then be on Phillip Island Road (B420), this will take you through San Remo and on to the Phillip Island Bridge.

  • From Phillip Island bridge to the wildlife park:

Continue along Phillip Island Road for approximately 10 to 15 minutes after you have crossed the bridge. Then you will find the Phillip Island Wildlife Park on the left hand side of this road. Look out for the Vic Roads sign approx. 100 meters from the gateway. Our address is 2115 Phillip Island Road, Cowes and the Melway reference pg 931 K4 (Ed.36 2009).
