This amazing 12-hour tour to Phillip Island takes you to see the Little Penguins at the Penguin Parade. Along the way, you’ll visit a koala and animal park, beautiful surf beaches and see the seals at Seal Rock, as well as enjoy a complimentary lunch.

• Travel along beautiful coastal scenic routes
• Visit a koala and animal park to interact with some of Australia’s most iconic animals
• Walk along Nobbies boardwalk and see the seals at Seal Rocks
• Visit the Penguin Parade, learn about penguins at the Penguin Complex and Education Centre and watch these adorable birds waddle up the beach

With a pickup from your Melbourne CBD accommodation (times may vary due to daylight savings), you’ll set off on your journey in a comfortable mini bus, accompanied by a friendly and experienced guide. Travelling along a scenic coastal route, your first stop of the day will be a local koala and animal park, where you’ll interact with a range of unique Australian wildlife species. You can have your photo taken with a koala (extra fees), feed kangaroos and wallabies and see many more cute and cuddly creatures.

You’ll next visit one of the area’s beautiful surf beaches, where you can stroll along the sand in attractive surroundings. You’ll visit the Nobbies boardwalk for a stroll and to see stunning views of the ocean. At Seal Rocks, you’ll spot playful seals going about their day. These inquisitive sea mammals are an absolute delight to watch, as they splash around in the water and sunbake on warm rocks.

Finally, you’ll head to the Penguin Parade. Here, you can drop into the Penguin Complex and Education Centre to learn everything you’d ever want to know about the Little Penguin, their diets, breeding habits, mannerisms and how they survive. You’ll head over to the penguin viewing area and meet the stars of the show – the Little Penguins (Fairy Penguins) – as they waddle up from the sea, heading towards their sand dune burrows for the night. These cute little sea birds are an absolute delight to watch and each has his or her own little personality, which you will witness as you watch them interact with each other and their surrounds.

After the Penguin Parade, you’ll be taken back to Melbourne and dropped back at your original pickup location, arriving at about 10 pm in winter or midnight in summer.
