With a comfortable 10 am pickup from your inner city Melbourne or St Kilda accommodation, you’ll hop aboard your comfortable tour coach and set off on a scenic journey towards Phillip Island, with a small, intimate number of fellow travellers. Your first stop of the day en route to the island will be a wildlife conservation park. Here, you’ll have the chance to get up close to a number of Australia’s favourite unique animal species, such as kangaroos, wallabies and koalas. You’ll also encounter some of the country’s more endangered and rare species, such as threatened sugar glider species, the Southern Bettong and Eastern Quolls. Cuddling up to a koala and having your photo taken is a highlight at the park.
Your next stop will be at the historically significant Churchill Island, where you’ll get to experience a sheep shearing demonstration and see the fully restored farm, cottages and homestead, all dating back to the late 1800s. After this, you’ll visit the impressive Cape Woolamai surf beach and the Nobbies. At Seal Rocks, you’ll be granted free access to the seal camera viewing area to experience the joy of watching these gorgeous mammals going about their day. You’ll also see the Blowhole.
Next, head over to Summerland Beach to experience the Penguin Parade. At the Penguin Complex and Education Centre, you’ll learn about how the Little Penguins (Fairy Penguins) live, eat, breed and survive in the wild. Then, with beautiful surroundings as your backdrop, you’ll be enthralled by the hundreds of adorable Little Penguins making their way up the beach to their nightly nesting area. Watch as each penguin reveals a little of their own unique personalities as they interact with each other and their environment. This is an amazing insight into these amazing birds and you’ll remember your experience forever.
At the end of the day, you’ll return to Melbourne and be dropped back to your original pickup location, arriving at about 10 pm.
