Cowes

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. Plan your trip to Cowes and other Australia destinations using our handy Australia trip builder website .
