Travel to Phillip Island by helicopter departing from the edge of the Yarra River in the very heart of Melbourne. En route enjoy spectacular views of the city hugging Port Phillip Bay and the Mornington Peninsula. On the ground you will be greeted by your private guide who will show you the island's highlights in a luxurious Mercedes Benz or Audi vehicle. Visit Cape Woolamai surf beach, the inhabitants at the Koala Conservation Centre, and view the awe-inspiring Southern Ocean from the boardwalks at The Nobbies. Guests will then enjoy a gourmet dinner at a popular waterfront restaurant in the coastal hamlet of Cowes prior to the nightly natural phenomenon that is the Penguin Parade - a signature wildlife experience of any visitor to Australian shores.
