Consider a detour via the famous Mornington Peninsula to explore areas such as winery region Red Hill, also home to popular Italian restaurant The Epicurean. The nearby Arthurs Seat lookout provides great views.

Hungry? The Tooradin Bakery is well worth a pit stop, serving some of the best pies, sausage rolls and pastries you can find. Alternatively, head straight to Phillip Island and explore the thriving cafe scene there, including The Store and The Cape Kitchen.

Upon arrival at Phillip Island, the Inline 4 Cafe is a motorcycle-themed restaurant that is popular with MotoGP™ fans.

There’s also plenty to see around your visit to the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, like The Nobbies boardwalk, Cape Woolamai and the Pyramid Rock lookout.

Enhance your MotoGP™ visit by staying at Phillip Island or close by. Accommodation is available at the circuit or across the island.

Ride Highlight

Detour south past Arthurs Seat towards Cape Schanck on Boneo Road and enjoy the coastal scenery and flowing curves between Cape Schanck and Flinders, but be wary of increased numbers of traffic and pedestrians during sunny weather.
