Tour Highlights

A tiny island of pristine white sand surf beaches and a haven for wildlife, Phillip Island is known worldwide for one of the most unique nature experiences, the nightly Penguin Parade.

Departing Melbourne in the afternoon, 90-minute drive will have you arriving at Cape Woolamai. Take a moment to watch local surfers before venturing on to the Koala Conservation Centre for superb eye-level viewing of Australia’s most-loved and cuddly marsupial.

Stroll clifftop boardwalks at ‘The Nobbies’ on the Summerland Peninsula. Absorb coastal views and hear the thundering blowhole from lookout points set amongst natural sea bird gardens. As the sun begins to set, travel off-road along the rugged island coastline to spot wild wallabies and Cape Barren geese, as they graze at dusk.

Prior to the arrival of the penguins, take an informative journey through the colony then take your seat away from the crowds in your choice of premium beachfront viewing stands.

Watch in awe as members of the 32,000 strong penguin colony emerge from the water, cross the beach then waddle their way to their nests.

Dinner will be served in popular seaside village of Cowes at a favourite local restaurant.
