Churchill Island Family Fun Festival
Churchill Island - Phillip Island
This is definitely one to keep in mind for next year.
Just off the coast of Phillip Island, Churchill Island is an historic working farm that provides the perfect setting for this traditional family fun festival. Activities include wagon rides, a three-legged race, plaster painting and a Punch & Judy show, as well as wool spinning, wood crafting, sheep shearing and blacksmith demonstrations. There are lots of farm animals, a lovely kitchen garden and plenty of open space for a picnic and/or play. The absence of commercial rides and fast food options is refreshing and we found it to be a fun, relaxing and affordable event which the kids thoroughly enjoyed.
Parking is available on the Island. Admission costs $10 for adults and $5 for children over four. For more information, visit Phillip Island Nature Parks
A Farmers Market is held here on the fourth saturday of each month and this could also be worth a visit
