Clip n Climb

Clip n Climb is a great concept in indoor climbing.

Situated in Industrial Way, Cowes, the facility comprises 30 walls of various degrees of difficulty.

The walls are visually stunning with their amazing colour schemes and crazy patterns.

Climbs are suitable for children as well as adults which makes for a fun family outing.

Each session begins with a 15 minute briefing on safety and climbing protocol and climbers will be fitted with a safety harness. Experienced staff will be in the climbing area at all times to supervise and assist.

Wear soft shoes such as sneakers and comfortable clothes - there is a lot of reaching and stretching involved!

There are two cafes, one downstairs and one on the upper level - a great vantage point to watch the activity!

Visitors are requested to book online as an online waiver form is required to be completed, and also to avoid disappointment.

Clip n Climb is open Tuesday to Sunday 9.30am to 7.00pm, plus every day during Victorian school holidays (9.30am - 9.00pm).

Phillip Island Ten Pin Bowling

96/91 Settlement Road, Cowes
☎ (03) 5952 3977

No need to worry about how to entertain the whole family when it rains, visit the Phillip Island Ten Pin Bowling & Entertainment Centre.

Recently our family went for a game. The 4 and 8 year olds played "bumper" bowls, where the ball is rolled down a mobile frame and barriers come up so the ball doesn't roll into the gutter. How I wish that was an option for not very skilled adults!

The 2 year old was happy playing in the enclosed "pups" play area while the other family members tested their bowling skills.

Ten pin bowling is available for all standards so even if you haven't tried it before, give it a go! There is a league competition for the more serious bowler.

Children from age 10 up can amuse themselves in the Lazer Zone - a dark maze where the aim is to tag opponents.

Pool tables and arcade games offer hours of entertainment.

For a celebration with a difference, children's birthday parties are also catered for.

The complex is air conditioned and has a licensed cafe/bar with a screen to watch major sporting events.

Open Monday to Thursday 12noon to late
Friday and Saturday 10 to late
Sunday 10 to 6
School Holidays and Public Holidays 10 to late

Phillip Island Observatory - CLOSED

Here's a chance to do some real stargazing! No, not celebrities, but actual stars, planets, nebulae and much more.

The Phillip Island Observatory is situated at Rhyll, where the lack of light pollution means almost perfect conditions for scanning the night skies.

Apart from the observatory, there is also a planetarium, where visitors can be immersed in the wonders of the universe.

Rhyll Trout & Bush Tucker Farm - CLOSED

30 Rhyll-Newhaven Road, Rhyll
☎ (03) 5956 9255

Rhyll Trout & Bush Tucker Farm

For something different for the family, this is a terrific Phillip Island fun activity.

Bring your own rod or hire one. Try your luck in the lake or indoors in a tropical setting with a pond stocked with big rainbow trout.

There is a competition for the biggest fish caught each year – it could be you!

Your catch can be cleaned to take home, cooked on the farm’s barbeques, or cooked by the chef – how easy is that?

The owners have a commitment to the environment and use many sustainable practices, as well as restoring original woodland.

If you want a break from fishing, enjoy a walk around the farm. Tranquil paths take visitors through plantings of bush tucker crops and woodland. Very informative signs are an excellent guide.

Products made from “bush tucker” are available for purchase in the café, either to take with you or as part of a meal with an Australian flavour!

Open every day except Christmas Day.
