See the famous Penguin Parade of Phillip Island in this fantastic half day express tour. Travelling out from Melbourne, we head straight out to Phillip Island, where you will pass through the iconic town of San Remo before driving past Australia’s Motorcycle Grand Prix track.

Once you have arrived at the Penguin Parade, you will have some time to enjoy the Visitors Information Centre, which will give you an interesting insight into the little penguins of Phillip Island. While here, you will also have an opportunity to grab some food before heading down to the shores to see the Penguin Parade.

Find a comfortable place along the foreshore and wait in anticipation as the world’s smallest penguins start to waddle their way to shore. After witnessing the penguins storm the beach, head over to the boardwalks to gain a closer view before boarding the bus and heading back to Melbourne.

“I went with Autopia to Phillip Island and really liked it.  The tour guide Simon was really experienced and spontaneous enough to make a stops, when one of us spotted a wallaby on the way. The island is really beautiful and the penguins are an absolute highlight.”
