Only one and a half hours from Melbourne, Phillip Island has all the facilities to appeal to the most discerning tourist. Visitors can enjoy the many attractions, ranging from the world renowned Penguin Parade and Seal Rocks Complex, to fun venues like 'Maze and Things' and the 'Adventure Playground'. There are over thirty restaurants and cafes, many of them offering first class cuisine which will please the most selective tastes.
The accommodation offered at Bowman’s B & B is spacious with glass sliding doors leading to a patio overlooking a garden. It has its own entrance, and includes a Queen size bed (dual controlled electric blankets), TV, video, microwave, fridge, with own shower and toilet. A hot breakfast is offered, or guests are free to prepare their own buffet, with provisions supplied.
Bowman’s B & B is only a three minute walk from the beach - four or five if you dawdle. It is a pleasant walk and you pass a wide variety of housing which gives a good indication of island architecture; from the well cared for weekenders to the more modern warehouse units and glass fronted permanent dwellings. Dafydd Street is L-shaped and a track at the end of the street leads down to the beach. Or, you can walk along Appleby Avenue to a barbeque area and wooden steps to the beach.
Situated between Cowes and the Seals Rock Complex with the Penguin Parade on the way, Red Rocks Beach is thought by many to be the best bay beach on the Island. Uncluttered, and with room to move, it is popular with swimmers, water skiers, joggers walkers, and anglers. Relaxing, yet not too far away from the Madding Crowd.
