At Autopia Tours we actively promote the protection of flora and fauna on our 2 Day Great Ocean Road Mornington Phillip Island Tour.  It is our duty to ensure there is minimal disturbance to the National Heritage Listed region of the Great Ocean Road and also of Phillip Island and the species that call these places home.  Cultural sensitivity and respect for the traditional owners should also be shown at all times.

Part of this responsibility is educating our guests on their behaviour and the importance of ensuring the safety wildlife and the environmental sustainability of the destinations we visit.

1. Autopia Tours would like to begin by paying our respects to the traditional owners of this country, with specific acknowledgement to the Kirrae Whurrong, Gulidjan, Gadubanud, Wathaurong and Boonwurrung people.  Please be conscious and respectful of the sensitivities of indigenous culture and the spiritual connection they have with the land at all times.  

2. First Aid certificate, please report any accident to your tour guide.  We recommend anyone with an existing medical condition to carry their medication with them on tour and to notify their tour guide at the beginning of the tour.

3. All buses are fitted with waste bins.  No organic waste should be disposed of onto the ground. Although organic, items such as banana peels, apple cores, bread and other food scraps, are not natural/native to the region and can introduce pest species, diseases or harm to wildlife if found and eaten.

4. The natural behaviours of wildlife are to be respected and not interfered with.  When viewing wildlife, people should take care to avoid rapid or sudden movements, which could frighten the animal, and should keep noise to a minimum and refrain from touching, petting or feeding all wildlife including birds. Contact with people can introduce diseases to wildlife and can cause them to become aggressive.

5. Please respect that although the penguins of Phillip Island have become accustomed to human presence, they are still wild animals and should be given space. We ask that our guests respect Nature Parks’ guidelines for the penguin viewing experience, as these are in place for the safety and comfort of guests and the penguins.

6. People should remain on designated walking tracks, behind safety barriers/fences and follow all directions given by the guide/tour leader.  Venturing off these can alter fragile ecosystems and can harm wildlife shelters and native vegetation.  There are other dangers to be aware of too, such as cliff edges, unstable rock formations, overhanging tree branches and slippery ground cover.  The beauty of the Great Ocean Road and Phillip Island is easily enjoyed from the trails and this greatly reduces the risk of injury or ecosystem disturbance. The Nobbies region on Phillip Island is a nesting area for many seabirds and can experience large and unexpected wave action also.

7. Wildlife should not be handled or fed, unless by certified wildlife handlers.  Feeding wildlife can alter their natural foraging behaviour and can lead to disease or illness through contact with people and the introduction of foods that are harmful to their digestive system.

8. No flora or fauna should be removed from their natural setting.  This includes dead wood, fallen leaves, flowers and so forth, as they form part of the ecosystem of the region and their removal could cause disturbance.

9. Wildlife that appears to be in distress, injured or in danger should be reported immediately to the appropriate authority, such as your Guide/Tour Leader, a National Park Ranger, Visitor Centre Staff or Wildlife Victoria Rescue Ph:1300 094 535.

10. If you are a smoker!  We ask you to refrain from smoking whilst in the company of other passengers and limit it to designated smoking areas. Smoking is not permitted on any of our vehicles, or in any type of accommodation including permanent campsites. We make frequent ‘comfort stops’ to allow free time for guests but cannot guaranteed smoke breaks. Please ensure you dispose of your cigarette butt responsibly and appropriately.

11. Bring a water bottle with you on our 2 Day Great Ocean Road Mornington Phillip Island Tour. Purchasing bottled water contributes large amounts of plastic into landfill.  Therefore, we ask guests to bring their own bottle, as there is access to water refill stations available on our vehicles.  Please ensure you stay hydrated throughout the tour to reduce the risk of sun exposure and dehydration.
