What to Expect
Travel reference:

Travel express to Phillip Island to see the iconic Penguin Parade on this afternoon tour!

Your tour starts with pick-up from select Melbourne city hotels, or meet at the central meeting point at Federation Square. We'll then head directly to Phillip Island, approximately a 90 minute drive from Melbourne and home to an abundance of wildlife – including penguins!

You'll have a chance to explore Phillip Island's Penguin Parade Centre to learn all about Phillip Island, its history and wildlife. Find out fascinating facts about the Little Penguin and its lifestyle, before taking your place to watch their arrival on shore. Every night these adorable Little Penguins battle the strong surf as they return to the beach after a day of hunting fish at sea. Watch them waddle their way up the beach to their waiting families from your General Viewing seats, or upgrade to "Penguins Plus" to gain an even closer view. After they are all back home, you'll return to Melbourne in air-conditioned comfort on your coach.
