Newhaven is the first town on Phillip Island visitors pass through after crossing the 1 kilometre long bridge spanning the waterway known as "The Narrows" which links Phillip Island with Victoria's mainland at San Remo.
The heart of Newhaven consists of Newhaven Plaza - a collection of shops and a small supermarket, set one block back from the coast. Newhaven is home to a number of significant attractions on Phillip Island including the Phillip Island Chocolate Factory and Vietnam Veterans Museum. Newhaven has a selection of wonderful accommodation to suit leisure and business travellers.
From Newhaven, go on a Phillip Island Helicopter Ride. Experience the scenic beauty of Phillip Island from the skies, before returning to land to visit Cocoa Island and immerse yourself in everything chocolate. All corners of Phillip Island are famous for their beaches, and Newhaven is no exception. Cape Woolamai is one of the best surf beaches on the Island, and also a popular bird spotting location. There is a great range of accommodation for all travellers. Backpackers accommodation and budget hotels and motels are available for those after an affordable holiday, while families will love the self contained apartments and cottages.
