Overview
Get up close to Australia’s native wildlife on this memorable full-day tour of Phillip Island from Melbourne, including hotel pick-up. See adorable koalas and wallabies at the island’s Koala Conservation Centre, spot Australia’s largest colony of fur seals at Seal Rocks and watch the sunset penguin parade along the coast. This small-group tour has a maximum of 12 participants, ensuring a personalized experience.
What to Expect

Your unforgettable day will commence with a visit to Moonlit Sanctuary Conservation Park where you are guaranteed plenty of close encounters with an array of Australian native animals like kangaroos, wombats and echidnas.

We will then head to Phillip Island where, time/season permitting, we will take you to Woolamai Surf Beach to catch a glimpse of the awesome waves and die-hard surfers. We then travel over to the dramatic west coast of the island.

At the Nobbies, you will stroll along the boardwalk to experience the waves crashing along this dramatic coastline and perhaps spot a few seals and some penguin nests.

A trip to Phillip Island is not complete without its black tie gala event: the Penguin Parade. You will head to the Visitor Centre to shop, have a coffee and meander along the boardwalk to the viewing platform where you will see the little penguins come ashore, decked out in their tuxedos as they hurry off to find their burrows.
