Walking Tracks on Phillip Island. Walking tracks and viewing platforms around Phillip Island offer splendid views, with routes to suit all fitness levels. The Cape Woolamai trail at the island's eastern tip is a reminder of the island's volcanic past, and the Bush to Bay Trail can be broken down into sections. Churchill Island has several good walking tracks, and there are great views from the boardwalks around the Nobbies. For information on all the good walking trails, visit the Phillip Island Visitor Information Centre at Newhaven, the small town you encounter as you come across the bridge from the mainland.
