Travel direct to the Phillip Island Penguin Parade for one of the most fascinating wildlife events you will ever see! First enjoy a two hour scenic drive to Phillip Island, with commentary and a halfway break. We take a scenic drive around part of the island before we arrive at the Penguin Parade approximately one hour before the penguins are due to appear. Time for a meal in the cafe, souvenir shopping and learning all about the little penguins in the visitor centre. Then take a seat in the General Viewing area for the main event, the little penguins emerging from the sea and marching across the beach to their sand dune burrows. You can also enjoy closer penguin viewing along the boardwalks behind the seating area and your driver/guide will give you some good advice about where to sit and how to get the best experience. After an hour of penguin viewing, the maximum time allowed, we return to Melbourne.
Our maximum tour group size is only 11 in one of our comfortable new aircon minibuses.
