One of Victoria’s hidden secrets

Churchill Island Heritage Farm covers 57 hectares and boasts a historic working farm with ‘hands on’ farming demonstrations reminiscent of a bygone era. Sheep shearing, cow milking, blacksmithing and working dog demonstrations run every day and are included in the entry fee. Churchill Island is easily accessible by an all-vehicle bridge from Phillip Island.First walked by Bunurong Aboriginal people, the island has an important place in the history of European settlement in Victoria.There are also lovely gardens, ancient Moonah trees, wetlands, a visitor’s centre and a licensed café.

The Island forms part of the Churchill Island Marine National park and the waters and mudflats surrounding Churchill Island are listed under the Convention on Wetlands of International Importance. Two island circuit tracks offers magnificent views across Western Port Bay and provide excellent bird viewing (Royal Spoonbills, Pied Oyster Catchers, ibis, gulls, herons and cormorants). On a clear day, there are also views of Tortoise Head and French Island.

Churchill Island's peaceful surrounds, picturesque views is the perfect location for functions and weddings. More information.
