Cowes ©
Resting on the northern coast of Philip Island, Cowes is sandwiched between a coast and a forest.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Fri): identify plant and animal life at Phillip Island Wildlife Park, then step off the mainland to explore Phillip Island Nature Parks - Koala Conservation Centre, then head off the coast to Churchill Island, and finally kick back and relax at Cape Woolamai Beach. On the 2nd (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: look for all kinds of wild species at Rhyll Trout and Bush Tucker Farm, learn about all things military at National Vietnam Veterans Museum, then admire nature's wide array of creatures at The Nobbies Centre, and finally kick back and relax at Flynns Beach.

Plan my Cowes trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Krakow, Poland to Cowes is an approximately 29-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Krakow to Cowes is 9 hours. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Krakow in February, with highs in Cowes at 30°C and lows at 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sat) to allow time to drive to Ballarat.
