What is the climate like?

Weather in Gippsland, Victoria can change very quickly and it is advisable to pack for all weather conditions. Phillip Island has a Mediterranean climate with typically warm to hot dry summers (Dec/Jan/Feb) with very low humidity; and cool, mild winters (Jun/Jul/Aug). The spring (Sep/Oct/Nov) and autumn (Mar/Apr/May) are true shoulder seasons where days can be more like winter or summer or something in between.

What should guests bring?

Tours specialise in beautiful scenery and diverse wildlife so definitely bring a camera and/or binoculars. On the Wilsons Promontory cruises, guests will have the chance to swim, snorkel and hike, so bring swimming costume/wetsuit, good walking shoes, mask and snorkel. We also have a licensed bar and kiosk on board, so additional purchases via EFT can be made. It can be cooler on the water so bring along some warm clothes.
