Just over an hour and a half from Melbourne, this awesome outdoor coastal and beach location is an iconic tourism town, with some of the best beaches in Victoria, there is plenty on offer this Summer and Autumn on Phillip Island

With the iconic Phillip Island Nature Parks including the Penguin Parade, Phillip Island has a lot to offer visitors.

You will depart Melbourne in a small group with about 25 other students, by bus before arriving in San Remo for a quick stop, followed by an Aboriginal cultural welcome ceremony with the Bunurong representatives before heading off to a surfing activity in the afternoon, before setting down on the beach to watch the sunset go down.

Enjoy coastal clifftop scenic walks, surfing lessons where you're guaranteed to stand up, bush-walking through Aussie bush-lands with lots of wildlife, camping, bush-tucker tasting, aboriginal cultural activities, outdoor group cooking, open campfires, community and conservation activities and much more...

"It was amazing to meet people from 22 different countries"

"I had an amazing time with rock climbing and the hikes. It was amazing to meet people from around 22 different countries. I enjoyed the moment we had in the campfire eating roasted marshmallows. I loved learning some salsa from fellow Columbian and Chile students and learning different languages and cultures. I had an amazing time and hoping to come back for more trips."
