Phillip Island is an Australian island about 140 km south-southeast of Melbourne, Victoria. Named after Arthur Phillip, the first Governor of New South Wales, Phillip Island forms a natural breakwater for the shallow waters of the Western Port. It is 26 km long and 9 km wide, with an area of about 100 km2. It has 97 km of coastline and is part of the Bass Coast Shire.

St. Philip’s Anglican Church on Phillip Island, was built in 1870; Rose family Memorial stained glass window given by Lucy Rose, sister of William and Hugh, who lived here 20yrs to 1910; was installed in 1912. Lucy returned to England giving the Anglican Church her property in Rose Avenue. It was named Clergy Rest and was used by clergy for holidays. The Parish Hall was built in 1936.

Cowes Island Craft Market is held every second Saturday of the month at St Phillips Parish Hall in Thompson Ave. The market offers craft, clothes, plants and produce for sale.
