The Nobbies Centre

The Nobbies Centre is an ecotourism destination located at Point Grant, on the western tip of Phillip Island.

A network of boardwalks outside the centre overlook Seal Rocks, The Nobbies, and The Blowhole.  Inside you can enjoy a meal and drink at the cafe and shopping in the gift shop all while enjoying the great view with floor to ceiling windows looking out to Bass Strait. The Nobbies Centre is also home to the Antarctic Journey.

Around one kilometre offshore from The Nobbies is Seal Rocks, home to Australia’s largest colony of fur seals with an estimated 16,000 inhabiting the area.  The Nobbies Centre opens at 10 every day and closes approximately one hour before sunset each day to protect the native wildlife.

Here are the approximate opening times throughout the year:

Summer: 10am – approx. 7.30pm
Autumn: 10am – approx. 5pm
Winter: 10am – approx. 4pm
Spring: 10am – approx. 6pm

The Nobbies Cafe closes approximately 30 minutes before the above closing times, while the Gift Shop will remain open until the centre closes.
