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 (own expense).

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.

Amazing tour with great guide!

I had an amazing time on this tour. I was a bit nervous spending money due to being a backpacker but I decided to do it anyway. Wow! Duane (our tour guide) was super friendly and personable. He always found some time to talk to each guest and get to know them even if it was just for a minute. Also, I fed and pet a kangaroo! The penguin parade was cute but all the other stops and our guide really made it worth it! The only thing I regret was not having a bit of cash to tip Duane at the end of the night.

Hi Martina, thank you for your review! Glad you had a relaxing trip with JP (we bet the P stands for pleasant instead of Paul :) ). We will also pass your comment about the itinerary times forward, so it can be reviewed when planning next season!

Perfect day!

The tour guide was outstanding and full of great information. The sanctuary was an awesome experience definitely glad it was part of the tour. The beach walk was fantastic sun came out just in time and it was fun to watch all the surfers. Last but not least the penguins were so cute, I got some walking on the beach right infront of me. Was expecting more of them though. All in all great your and well worth the money.
