Autumn Abundance – Food & Drink
Lose yourself on Phillip Island this Autumn and discover the fun of a naturally playful escape 🌿
Just two hours from Melbourne, Phillip Island is a world unto itself, where things feel different in the best of ways and life moves at a slower pace.
It’s a place of welcoming locals, captivating wildlife encounters, fun-filled family attractions, great food to enjoy, award-winning wine and locally brewed beer, idyllic beaches, breathtaking scenery, and invigorating nature walks.
Autumn Abundance (food + drink) 🍷
As the temperature begins to drop, Phillip Island’s cooler climate offers ideal conditions for growing, making and creating some truly world-class wines and beers, and an abundance of produce that showcases the tastes and talents of the local region.
Phillip Island is home to two award-winning, family-owned wineries, both offering relaxed cellar door experiences. Set amongst peaceful Island farmland, there’s arguably no better way to while away an Autumn afternoon than over a grazing platter and bottle of premium, cool climate wine.
