Family fun these School Holidays


The shortest day of the year is long gone, spring has sprung, and Phillip Island Nature Parks is delivering a great range of activities to keep the family busy during these school holidays.

Start by dropping in to the Antarctic Journey at the Nobbies to explore the underwater world of the Disney•Pixar Finding Dory Immersive Zone while staying warm and dry. Follow the journey of this forgetful blue tang fish as she sets out on a quest to find her family.

Wriggle and wiggle your way through the Migration Tunnel, then forge a path through the ancient Kelp Forest to see if you can find Dory. You can also have a chat to Destiny the whale and hear your own voice in whale-speak, or visit Hank the Septapus as you explore the Marine Life Institute with craft activities. Plus, don’t forget to try the memory matching game to see if you can remember like Dory.

The Disney•Pixar Finding Dory Immersive Zone will be operating daily in the Antarctic Journey at the Nobbies from Thursday 27 September to Wednesday 3 October between 11am and 2pm. Entry is free with a 4 Parks Pass.

Speaking of fun and free, the rangers from Phillip Island Nature Parks have put together a great range of fun and educational free holiday activities. Join a ranger on Bugs, Bandicoots & Digs to learn about the critically endangered Eastern Barred Bandicoots which have found a new home on Churchill Island, then create some fun bandicoot and bug art.

Explore the bushland on a ranger-led Nature Scavenger Hunt or venture into the night for an after-dark Koala Prowl. Delve into the mysterious lives of rockpool creatures on a Rockpool Spotlighting adventure, or discover the wonders of the deep as a Beach Explorer and explore the many treasures washed ashore from the depths of the sea. These free of charge daily activities take place between Monday 24 September and Sunday 7 October.

Make the most of your visit to Phillip Island with a great value 4 Parks Pass which includes discounted entry to the much loved Penguin Parade, Antarctic Journey, Koala Reserve and Churchill Island.
