An Island Getaway

Combine the race with an island stay and choose an Australian MotoGP holiday package that gives you on track excitement combined with off track relaxation. The Sportsnet team are massive MotoGP fans, having attended multiple races over the years, so they know all the best spots on Philip Island!

• Penguins on Parade – Yep aside from the Phillip Island MotoGP the region is particularly famous for the many penguins that inhabit the area. Find a sunset spot at Summerland Beach and watch the flocks of Little Penguins return to shore after a day’s fishing.

• Surf’s Up – Whether you pack your surfboard or not it’s worth mentioning that Phillip Island has terrific waves for all levels of surfers. So if the ocean swell calls, hire a board and get wet. Note; you’ll want a decent wetsuit, its Victoria and the water is damn cold.

• Ocean Reach Brewing – Pop by this craft brewery and enjoy a beer served directly from the tank to your glass. It’s a relaxed atmosphere and allows you to see into the brewhouse where the beer is made. They operate on a small scale which allows the taps to continually rotate with new delicious brews.
