Phillip Island is approximately 1 hour 45 minutes from Melbourne but first we visit the colourful wooden bathing boxes along Brighton Beach, one of the Melbourne’s most famous coastal views.
We then travel to Phillip Island and visit a local Wildlife Park where you’ll enjoy close encounters with Australia’s most iconic native animals with the option to hand feed the kangaroos and wallabies!
Your tour then journeys to Cowes, a pretty seaside town on the Island where we’ll enjoy dinner by the foreshore and a short stroll along the esplanade. (During Winter month lunch will be included instead of dinner). After dinner we head to the western point of the island known as the Nobbies, a showcase of stunning coastlines and wildlife. Search for little penguins who stayed home in their burrows – this is your only penguin photo opportunity as photography is not allowed at the penguin parade!
As you journey along the south coast of Phillip Island you’ll be blown away by the pristine environment which has been regenerated by the Phillip Island Nature Parks attracting up to 32,000 little penguins.
Your Phillip Island tour then arrives at the Phillip Island Penguin Centre. We will escort you to your viewing area showing you to the best available viewing position to see the world famous Penguin Parade as the Little Penguins march across the beach after sunset.
Explore the visitors centre with its many displays and gift shops before we make our way back home to Melbourne- approximately a 2 hour return journey.
