Churchill Island Sunday Session
Great food, local wines, live music and free kids’ activities are all the ingredients you could possibly need for a super Sunday Session at Churchill Island on 13 March, over the Labour Day Long Weekend. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Western Port’s serene waters, there’s plenty to enjoy and keep the whole family entertained.
Children will be able to choose from an array of free activities run by Phillip Island Nature Parks Education Rangers between 12pm and 6pm. What could be better for a bit of fun on a heritage farm than some old time games, arts and crafts, treasure hunts and more? The kids can even do their bit for the environment by painting a possum box or bird box which you can then take home, creating important habitat for our native wildlife.
While the kids are busy being creative, take the opportunity to relax, unwind and enjoy the beautiful views to the sounds of some great live tunes from some of our talented local entertainers.
Teresa Dixon is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with a special interest in country, folk and blues genres whose voice is reminiscent of gravel and honey. Bern Carroll will have you riding a roller-coaster of emotion after crooning a beautiful ballad, then belting out a tune to knock you off your feet. The Sea Ponies are a local duo made up of Dannielle Baylis and Bec Archibald, and their sweet acoustic sound will make you wish this Sunday Session wouldn’t end.
The café will be showcasing its special gourmet menu featuring an abundance of seasonal, local produce. Be sure to try some of the tempting dishes like braised lamb sliders, pesto fettuccine or Bass Coast cheeses with home-made fig jam. Check out our chef in action as he prepares a big pan of mouth-watering paella, a special addition to the menu for the day.
Churchill Island is the place to be from 12pm to 8pm on Sunday, March 13 for a Sunday Session that won’t leave you with the Monday blues. Entry is free and food and beverages are available at menu prices.
