Experience life on a farm in the 19th Century
This tiny historic island next to Phillip Island is home to a meticulously restored farmhouse and cottage where you can catch a glimpse of what life was like in Australia in Victorian times. Not only will you get an insight into the agricultural lifestyle of Australia's early settlers, but you'll also see the farming techniques used in Victorian times, as Churchill Island was where farming was first practised when settlers arrived here in the 19th Century.
This tiny 57-hectare island has been farmed since the 1850s, and was purchased in 1872 by Samuel Amess, Mayor of Melbourne at the time. Explore the historic working farm that has been conserved to resemble what it looked like when it was in operation, with its historic buildings, heritage gardens and ancient Moonah trees.
In the Visitor's Centre you will be able to see a display that tells the story of the island's history. There's also a restaurant, which is popular not only as a venue for visitors to the farm, but also as a place for weddings and other celebrations.
Access to Churchill Island and the historic working farm is over a vehicle bridge. Guests can also enjoy include sheep shearing and milking cows, wagon rides, whip cracking and boomerang throwing. For the more active, there are a number of walking and biking trails to explore. Facilities for weddings and corporate functions are also available.
Weddings: This provides an intimate and original wedding venue, a historic homestead that can provide everything you'd want for your big day; ceremony, a stunning reception and breathatking photographic locations.
