Erehwon Point BBQ’s and Playground
Phillip Island and the town of Cowes are a real treasure trove for families. When I visit with my family I never have to venture too far from my holiday house to find the right activities and attractions for my kids. With a toddler in the family I am constantly looking for activities where everyone can join the fun. That is why my family and I love to spend time at Erehwon Point.
Why We Love Erehwon Point
Our love affair with Erehwon Point started when our first born was a toddler. We wanted to spend time at a place that would be suitable for toddlers, and we discovered the Point on The Esplanade to the east end of Cowes Beach.
My first born is no longer a toddler, but he still loves spending a day at this well-equipped playground.
My friends, who had never been to Cowes or Phillip Island wondered what is so fascinating about Erehwon Point. Here is why our family loves it:
– A huge fort-like structure with three slides. One slide is a tunnel slide
– Climbing nets
– Toddler swings
– Rocking animals
– Noughts and crosses
– Monkey bars
– Balance beam with obstacles
– 2-person pommel bounce
– Inclined balance beam
– Stand-on carousel
– Yacht springer
– Fireman’s pole
– Shop front with steps
– Height check board
Family and Fun Time at Erehwon Point
When we head out to Erehwon Point the beach is just a few metres away offering easy access. There are wooden steps leading to the eastern part of Cowes Beach. With trees offering shade, it is relaxing to spend a day and just gaze at the panoramic view of the ocean.
We prepare our barbecue marinades and meats at our Cowes holiday rental house a day in advance as the playground has shelters with electric BBQs. With shaded and unshaded tables and seats it is a pleasure to sit down and dig into the succulent and mildly flavoured meats.
It means a lot to my family, especially my kids, when we spend time at The Point and have fun at the playground and then cool off with a nice and delicious BBQ. Try it and you too will come away with cherished memories and a desire to return to Cowes to get more of Erehwon Point.
