Phillip Island Experience

Phillip Island Experience
Duration: 8-9 Hours
Phillip Island is located a 1.5-hour drive from Melbourne and is home to one of the most unique nature-based experiences, the nightly Penguin Parade where the Little Penguins make their way waddling across the beach to their burrows in the surrounding vegetation. The penguin colony at Phillip Island is home to over 32,000 penguins so you are guaranteed to see many penguins during your visit while also hearing them communicating to other penguins. During your Phillip Island experience, we’ll also explore the rugged Cape Woolamai Surf Beach and take a walk along this beautiful stretch of beach before wandering through the treetop walk to see the resident koalas up close in a natural setting at the Koala Conservation Centre where you’ll learn about Australia’s much loved marsupial. As part of our visit to Phillip Island, we’ll visit a local winery or brewery (optional), stroll along the clifftop boardwalks at the Nobbies to take in the spectacular views along the coastline and across to Seal Rocks, home of a large colony of Australian Fur Seals while taking a short late afternoon drive to search for wallabies, Cape Barron Geese and echidnas in the wild.
