Cowes

4.3
Resting on the northern coast of Philip Island, Cowes is sandwiched between a coast and a forest. First settled in 1869, Cowes is a popular vacation spot for Australians looking for quiet outside of Melbourne. The population is only about 4,000 people, and absentee owners own an estimated 70 percent of the homes. During vacation months, though, the population triples with visitors to the forest, beaches, and the Phillip Island Adventure Resort. Cowes is in Phillip Island. Add Cowes and other destinations to your itinerary using our Australia tour planner , and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
