Shearwater Migration

April 25 - May 12

The annual shearwater migration is expected to begin mid-April on Phillip Island. The Phillip Island Nature Parks are seeking the communities support to ensure safe passage for the birds. Most of the shearwater chicks will depart sometime between mid April and early May.

During that time

  • the birds look to the San Remo Bridge lights
  • the birds may be on the road as they learn to fly
  • drivers need to slow down and take care
  • the bridge lights will be switched off for  8-10 nights around 25th April
