Phillip Island parkrun
Playing parkrun tourists in our favourite holiday location!
For the past 15 years we have been lucky enough to have lived just one hour’s drive from the beautiful Phillip Island. In 2015 we were excited to learn that there was a new parkrun on the island! It is located on the small picturesque Churchill Island, Newhaven. The island is also home to a heritage farm where for a small cost you can step back in time and experience farm life. Whenever we visit Phillip Island for a family holiday we always visit this awesome parkrun! If you’re lucky enough to visit on the 4th Saturday of the month you may be rewarded with a gorgeous local farmer’s market too!
The course is one of the most picturesque courses in Victoria. It winds its way around the clifftops of the island and leaves you with breathtaking views at every turn. The path is gravel and can only be explained as undulating. There is a turn around sign at the 2.5km mark so you get to enjoy the views all over again!
