Great photo opportunities, take advantage of the boardwalk along the cliffs but do take a jacket as it can get quite cold and windy. we didn't visit the Visitors Centre, next time. Well worth the visit.

Visited on Monday 26th February. I remember visiting here 45 years ago, it is much better now with raised boardwalks that allow you to walk around without interfering with nature. The penguins nesting here, the seal out on Seal Rock and the blow hole. It's...More

We recently spent several days at Ventnor on Phillip Island. and visited the Nobbies and the centre there. To see the coastline there you need to see it at three different times. Rug up on a stormy day and walk along the excellent boardwalk to...More
