Penguin Parade Tour Itinerary

This 1 Day Phillip Island Tour offers the very best of Victorian coastal scenery combined with Australian wildlife for everyone to enjoy.

Departing Melbourne we head straight towards Phillip Island, before crossing the bridge in San Remo we stop for a full Australian Wildlife experience at the Maru Wildlife Park. Take a this opportunity to get your photo taken while you cuddle a koala.  View and interact with a range of Aussie favorites like Emus, Dingos, Wombats and Tassie Devils.  Hand feeding kangaroos will be a highlight of your visit.

Next, we journey across Phillip Island to the Nobbies Centre, taking in the stunning rural scenery along the way. Watch the seals play on the rocks from special observation cameras at The Nobbies, before visiting the Nobbies Information Centre. Walk along the boardwalk and view the powerful ocean force as it creates a blowhole. Keep your eyes peeled for the other adorable Aussie animals that call the area home.

And then for the highlight of this 1 Day Phillip Island Penguin Parade Tour – the daily Penguin Parade, which draws thousands of visitors from around the world every year. As the sun goes down, hundreds of little penguins emerge from the sea and waddle ashore to find safety in their burrows after a long day at sea. This electrifying procession of penguins is an experience that everyone visiting Victoria should see. Book your 1 Day Phillip Island Penguin Parade Tour with us today.

Please note: Due to the seasonal nature of the penguin arrivals, on rare occasions, time constraints can prevent us from visiting some minor attractions outlined in this itinerary.

Please note this is a small group Phillip Island Tour that is usually operated on a Mitsubishi Rosa Deluxe or similar. The smaller groups are preferred by most travellers, however if you are looking for a little more room and would prefer to travel on a large coach please click here.
