Phillip Island day tour great value!

Not only you get to see the penguins, Simon Q our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the local places, and we had great stops at Maru Park, Penny’s Chocolates, beach walks and Antartica discovery centre as well as Wildlife spotting. Also managed to squeeze in a helicopter ride (not part of tour). Certainly worthwhile experience being part of a smaller tour group.

Amazing Penguins

I went on the day tour to Phillips island. I really liked the main part of the tour, Phillips Island. The penguins are incredible and completely worth it for me, from the Northern Hemisphere, as I cannot easily see something like that. I really enjoyed our tour guide, Rob.
