Get up close with the world's smallest and cutest penguins at the world-famous Penguin Parade on Phillip Island!
Arriving at Phillip Island, you can stroll the coastal boardwalks of Point Grant and the Nobbies to enjoy the stunning views over Westernport Bay and Bass Strait, including Seal Rocks, home to Australia's largest population of fur seals. Then head down to Summerland Beach to witness Penguin Parade. Every night these adorable little penguins scamper out of the sea as they return ashore after a hard day of fishing. From the elevated platforms, you can watch them waddle their way up the beach to their nests to greet their young families before retreating to their nests tucked away in the sand dunes.
Upgrade to the Plus Viewing in which the visitor numbers are limited to 300 and with access to up close seating and boardwalk access to enjoy the unrivalled views of the nightly parade. You also have the option of coming down to the underground visiting room where 70 visitors can have a unique opportunity to watch the penguins at ground-level. Alternatively, you can join a fully guided group tour with an expert wildlife ranger, in a group of no more than ten visitors, with exclusive priority seating to watch the penguin parade.
