Know More about this tour

Enjoy the very best of Victorias wildlife, nature and farming heritage. The Penguin Parade is an absolute must on every visitors itinerary, but this tour gives you so much more.

After departing Melbourne, your first stop is Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park where you can observe cute wallabies on the Wallaby Walk (you may see little joeys peeking out of their mothers pouches) or have the opportunity to get a photo taken with a koala. There are rare sightings of endangered Australian wildlife in this Eco-accredited sanctuary too.

Next, you'll see sheep shearing and working dogs in action at the historic farm on neighboring Churchill Island before visiting the Koala Conservation Centre (watch out for koalas napping in the fork of a tree).

Visit Phillip Island's dramatic Cape Woolamai surf beach and enjoy a stroll along the Nobbies boardwalk with views of the rugged coastline. Finally, the ultimate attraction: as dusk falls hundreds of Little Penguins popping out of the sea and waddling across the beach to their sand dune burrows in the Penguin Parade.

Enhance your penguin-viewing experience with an upgrade to the Penguin Plus option to have a better view of the penguins from the comfort of an exclusive viewing area with private boardwalk.

Your driver will return you to Melbourne at the end of your trip.
