Rhyll for That Real Taste of Australia

Rhyll is a lovely place set squarely on Phillip Island in Victoria, Australia. It is located just ninety minutes south-southeast of Melbourne and is easily reached by road and/or ferry. There is a bridge connecting it directly to the mainland but some boat charters will take visitors off to other islands close by.

Phillip Island is most well known for its variety of beaches, wildlife, penguins, seals and a huge variety of birds. It is also home to the Grand Prix circuit so this must be where tech toys meet nature and it’s all wrapped up in wonderful surroundings.

Holiday accommodation is available in many different places, but most people spend a few days in Melbourne to recover from long haul flights, and to experience all the wonders that Melbourne has to offer.

Things to Do Here

The first thing that people want to know about is the beaches of course. Those who come from colder climes find long beaches and warm waters absolutely essential if they are to have a good holiday. Once rested, people then want to be entertained or visit different National Parks or Sanctuaries to see some indigenous wildlife. Whatever is needed, Phillip Island has it all.

Australia is well known for its hospitality, so visitors often make a bee-line for the Rhyll Trout and Bush Tucker Farm. Not only do they get taught how to catch a rainbow trout, round the perfectly picturesque lake and all weather indoor ‘Rainforest Pool’, they can taste what they caught or take it back to their holiday home. This place is a full three hectares of native trees, plants and fruit bushes and visitors are taught how the Koori people harvested and used all the produce.

Stock up on some bush tucker produce from the Farmhouse Café, or take a Devonshire Cream Tea perhaps, before going home to tuck into yet more goodies that were picked up on the trip. It may also be possible to stay in some farmhouse style accommodation in this region too, to get the feel of living amongst nature.

Then try out the T-Cat Fishing Charters which takes visitors off the island for a fast ride out to sea. They usually go off to Bass Straits for the fishing, and Seal Rocks for viewing of the seals which inhabit the area.

Rhyll and Phillip Island is full of little seaside villages, some offering quaint accommodation choices, and has abundant wildlife and attractions for all the family to enjoy. The island even offers helicopter charters too, so this is a must for families with kids.

The one thing that everyone must witness is the Penguin Parade at dusk every day. They make their way from the ocean to the sand dunes at Summerland Beach and are a spectacle enjoyed by old and young alike. Lastly, and without fail, people must visit the Koala Sanctuary for some interaction with these dear little creatures.

Getting to Phillip Island

This couldn’t be easier since there are plentiful flights from the UK to Melbourne. Melbourne is just about ninety minutes away, so even those who are tired can manage a hire car trip down to Phillip Island. There are transfers for those who want to be carried and, for those who just know that they will be tired, book accommodation in the city for a few nights and see the bright lights, before escaping to the island.

Accommodation in Rhyll

Australia is one place where accommodation comes in many forms. From serviced apartments with swimming pools to five star luxury accommodations - the choice is purely down to personal taste and the budget. Accommodation in Rhyll is also possible but some people move from island to island spending a few days in different accommodation along the way.

Weather Patterns

Summer in Victoria, and its environs, falls squarely around Christmas up to April. The colder months have something to offer too since the island is quite rugged then. However, it is never as cold as the UK so those who like the weather a little cooler should head for July to have their holidays.

Fantastic family friendly home

5 of 5
This is a great property situated in a nice part of Cowes. It easily accommodated our group of 10 people, and was very family friendly with games for the kids and table tennis. The house is very clean and everything is in great condition. The decor is really thoughtful, with different tones in different parts of the house. The property manager was pleasant to deal with, and we could not have been happier with this property..
