Phillip Island Nature Parks introduces exclusive pass for locals

Phillip Island Nature Parks introduces exclusive pass for locals
December 12, 2019

Bass Coast residents and students are set to benefit from the Phillip Island Nature Parks’ new and revamped Locals Pass.

This exclusive pass offers locals year-round entry to the Nature Parks’ four key attractions including the Penguin Parade, Koala Reserve, Antarctic Journey at the Nobbies and Churchill Island – all for the price of one visit.

Sally O’Neill, Phillip Island Nature Parks Community Engagement Officer advises “We love our locals and want to share the Nature Parks more across the year.

“The upgraded pass offers much more than just entry – you also join the Nature Parks ‘family’ and receive member benefits throughout the year.”

Along with being able to visit any attraction any time, locals receive a quarterly newsletter, member discounts and invitations to exclusive member events with their pass. For the month of December, locals are also being offered a coffee when they sign up for the locals pass.

O’Neill added “These events will offer locals opportunities to come behind the scenes with rangers and researchers and to become more involved in the Nature Parks, the work we do and the areas and wildlife the Nature Parks is privileged to manage.”

The Nature Parks is a not for profit, self-funded organisation with a united purpose to protect nature for wildlife and inspire people to act.

The Nature Parks proudly manages many of Phillip Island’s natural areas for locals and visitors to enjoy including:

• 25% of Phillip Island’s natural areas

• 115 kilometres of the total 141 kilometres of Phillip Island’s coast and islands.

• 42 kilometres of walking paths and tracks

• 4.7 kilometres of boardwalks, 38 viewing areas and 22 shoreline access points.

Phillip Island Nature Parks’ Locals Pass is available to Bass Coast Shire Residents (with proof of ID such as drivers licence, rates notice or bill) and to school students (with student card). 

Passes must be purchased in person at Nature Parks visitor centres
