Churchill Island Tours

The Churchill Island Heritage Farm is one of Melbourne’s most unique attractions. A tiny island off the coast of Phillip Island, Churchill Island is occupied entirely by the Churchill Island Heritage Farm.

Churchill Island was one of the first places in Victoria to be used for agriculture. Farmed since 1798, the island retains its heritage by showcasing pioneer farming techniques to visitors in its current incarnation as an historic working farm.

The Churchill Island Heritage Farm Visitor Centre contains an exhibition on the history of the island, as well as a giftshop and café. The real attraction of the island however is the farm life. Daily farming activities include cow milking, sheep shearing and more. Visitors can also circumnavigate the island on a walking track with fantastic views. The farm hosts a farmers market on the fourth Saturday of each month with lots of local produce.

Kids will love spotting the unusual breed of typical farm animals on the island. Highland cows, Clydesdale horses, peacocks and more can be found on the farm, as well as sightings of the Little Penguins that live on Phillip Island next door.

Practical Info

Access to Churchill Island is via Phillip Island, a ninety minute drive from Melbourne. Once on Phillip Island, head across the Churchill Island bridge. It’s also possible to walk from Phillip Island to Churchill Island if you’ve taken a tour or public transport to Phillip Island. The Heritage Farm is open from 10am to 5pm daily, and entry costs $12 for adults and $6 for children.
