Jump on board a tour to Phillip Island and get up close and personal with an array of Aussie wildlife! Check out the awesome coastline of Phillip Island and then witness one of Australia’s most spectacular wildlife experiences as hundreds of the world’s smallest penguins waddle ashore. You’ll also get to hand-feed kangaroos, get up close to koalas and spot Fur Seals on the rugged rocky coastline of the Victorian Island
We escape the concrete jungle of Melbourne and begin our day at a wildlife park where you will have the pleasure of meeting some furry Australian favourites. We will also stop here and have lunch.
We move on to tour the length of Phillip Island, known for its sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and unique wildlife experiences. Be awed by the giant surf at Woolamai beach and rugged coastline of Cape Woolamai as we stop to enjoy some afternoon tea. During the summer months, we take this opportunity to cool off with a visit to the beach. Alternatively, in poor weather conditions we include a quick stop to Panny’s Chocolate Factory - Factory tour is optional and at own expense
At the Western tip of the island there is a majestic rocky coast, home to a colony of fur seals. We wander along the boardwalk checking penguin burrows for life and then we're on to the penguin parade. Check out the award winning Visitors Centre and as the sun drops, witness the world`s littlest penguins emerge from the sea and waddle ashore. This is a truly magical experience.

Hi Akash, Thank you so much for taking the time to give us your feedback, Bisho is a great guide and we will pass your lovely comments on to him! Just to address some of your points, there is the opportunity to have your photo taken with a Koala on this tour, however we would never advertise 'Cuddle' a Koala, as in Victoria it is illegal to hold Koala's (only allowed to stroke their backs!) - this is to avoid stressing them out. We also do not advertise the opportunity to see volcanoes anywhere on this tour, while that would be amazing there are no (live!) ones in the area, although Phillip Island was originally formed by a volcano about 50 million years ago so perhaps this is where the confusion comes from!? We are very glad you still enjoyed the tour and gave us 5 stars, hope you have a great time on the rest of your trip! Kind Regards, Lizzie Autopia Tours Reservations
Hi Ann Marie, Thank you so much for your feedback on our Phillip Island and Penguin Parade Day Tour. We're glad to hear you found it great value for money and that you got to experience a true 'Aussie' encounter with a kangaroo. Duane will be more than happy to hear that you had a wonderful time with him on the tour and surely appreciative of your compliments. We hope to see you in future to join us on our other fabulous tours. All the best Kind regards Kathryn Reservations
Hi Sandra, Beautiful photos! We like to think we have 2 types of Australian animals shown on this tour, the first is the animals in the sanctuary which you can interact with, they were once wild but have been homed here for various reasons to be looked after. This is a great way to be able to see our native animals up close. And then when we get on to the Island you will be delighted by the wallabies hopping freely, the odd echidna and of course the amazing little penguins all of which are wild! We will pas your lovely comments on to Chris, thanks so much for the review! Autopia Tours
Hi Katharina, Thanks for letting us know your feedback. Looks like you traveled around Easter time, where it is fair to say it can be quite busy at the Penguin Parade and indeed around Melbourne. We are pleased Phil kept you entertained despite the traffic. Yes the Penguins do come out of the water in small groups, we call these 'rafts'. I find it makes for more fun spotting the different groups! Thank you again for taking the time to leave us a review!
Hi Thomas, Thanks for your great review and that photo looks idyllic! That's great that you saw so many Penguins, they really are special! Safe trip back to NZ and we hope to see you on another tour if you're back in Melbourne! Kind Regards, Lizzie Autopia Tours Resevations
