After a produce tasting sit down and enjoy the stunning surrounds with coffee or tea from their cafe. Then its off to Red Hill Estate where you can see Phillip Island across the sparkling waters of Western Port Bay. This has to be one of the best views from any winery in the world.

You will be thrilled to pick your own and take home with you 500g of strawberries. 

Your Phillip island tour then travels to the Moonlit Sanctuary where you'll enjoy close encounters with Australia's most iconic native animals. Set in a natural bush setting makes for amazing photo's. Option to hand feed the kangaroos & koala petting encounters. Your Phillip island tour journeys across the San Remo bridge to Phillip Island.
