Stunning views ar Churchill Island and House. Activities for young and old! Lovely to see the Old Amess House. Koala Sanctury just amazing for us tourists ( UK) who dont get to see Koala'a. We were very close and able to see them clearly as well as bird life and Wallabies! Penguin Parade- just so much excitement and anticipation and it paid off- 770 Penguins around our night. So wonderful to see them come in from the shore and waddle to their 'beds' for the night.

Discover Churchill Island, a peaceful retreat nestled off the coast of Phillip Island. This idyllic destination offers a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, inviting you to bask in the tranquility of wide-open spaces and breathe in the crisp, invigorating sea air.

Farming Activities

As you step onto Churchill Island, you'll be transported back in time, exploring its historical grounds and experiencing the timeless rhythms of farming life. The Churchill Island Heritage Farm is the centerpiece of the island's attractions. It provides an authentic representation of rural life in the 19th century. Visitors can take part in traditional farming practices, including sheep shearing, cow milking, and working dog demonstrations. The farm is home to heritage livestock breeds, such as Clydesdale horses, which were once essential for farming tasks.

See Beautiful Seabirds

Visitors can wander through the carefully maintained gardens, including the cottage garden, rose garden, and orchards. As you explore the bay trails and various vantage points, keep an eye out for species such as silver gulls, pacific gulls, and crested terns gracefully gliding over the water. Lastly, visit the historic homestead called "Amess House," which was built in the 1870s. It's a well-preserved example of early colonial architecture in Australia.
