A real working farm. You can milk a cow, watch a sheep get shorn, watch whip cracking and it's loud. Visit the animal nursery and watch the working dogs round up some sheep. Go inside the original homestead, it's beautiful. The views from the island...More

If you are going to the Penguin Parade on Phillip Island you must go to Churchill Island in the afternoon so that you see the activities relating to early cattle and sheep farming. Kids will love it

This is a stop on many bus tours from Melbourne who are at Philip Island to see the Penguins, so it can get crowed mid day. But when the buses leave, you have the place to your self and it is quite fun.
