Phillip Island

Reserves & National Parks Norfolk Island

Description

Just six kilometres to the south of Norfolk lies Phillip Island which is protected by the Norfolk Island National Parks.
Phillip Island has an area of 190 hectares (470 acres), measuring 2.1 km (1.3 mi) from west to east and 1.95 km (1.21 mi) from north to south, with the highest point, Jacky Jacky, being 280 m (920 ft) above sea level.

In the right light, the island appears in its striking colours; rich reds and purples, subtle yellows and greys arched like rainbows through the contours of its imposing form.
Some have even dubbed it the "Uluru of the South Pacific"

The island is difficult to get to and harder still to climb, but for the thousands of sea birds that regularly visit, Phillip Island is nothing short of an oasis. The island is free from feral predators and is home to a number of rare and endangered plants
