Get up close with Australian native animals and the world's smallest and cutest penguins with this Phillip Island Penguin Parade Wildlife Day Tour!
Your full day wildlife adventure starts with your driver picking you up from your Melbourne hotel, heading out to the Maru Koala and Animal Park. Here you can hand-feed, pat and 'get in touch with' many of the Australian native animals. Spend about 45 minutes to explore the park and get up close with kangaroos or koalas.
Once you have experienced Maru Wildlife Park, hit the road again and arrive at Phillip Island and make your way down to Cape Woolamai Surf Beach. Breathe in the sea air and take a walk along the beach, taking in the stunning views of this volcanic coastline. Learn the preservation and cultural significance of the area in Phillip Island Nature Parks. Entering Summerlands National Park, you can have a walk out around the board walks of The Nobbies and view The Blowhole. Take out your camera to snap some majestic views. On a sunny day you might be lucky enough to see Australian Fur Seals basking in the sun.
After sunset comes the highlight of your tour - the famous Penguin Parade! Watch carefully while these adorable small creatures passing through the coast right before your eyes to their dunes after a day of fishing. The Penguin Colony comes alive with the noises of them socialising and calling out to each other. You have the option of Standard Viewing or Plus Viewing, where you can enjoy the nightly parade from the beach or on the viewing boardwalk. Afterwards, you will be returned back to your Melbourne accommodation.
