Resting on the northern coast of Philip Island, Cowes is sandwiched between a coast and a forest.
Kids will appreciate attractions like A Maze'N Things and Cowes Beach. Explore Cowes' surroundings by going to Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park (in Pearcedale), Maru Koala and Animal Park (in Grantville) and Bassine Specialty Cheeses (in Bass). Spend the 18th (Sat) exploring nature at Point Nepean National Park. There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Koala Conservation Centre, brush up on your military savvy at National Vietnam Veterans Museum, step off the mainland to explore Churchill Island, and look for gifts at Tyde.
