Penguin parade day tours, Phillip Island

 

Full day tour:

 

Our Phillip Island and penguin parade tour highlights the best of Victoria’s nature and wildlife.  Get up close and personal with the friendly residents of the Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park where you can hand feed kangaroos and wallabies, have your photo taken with a koala and learn about the conservation of these loveable native animals.  The eco certified sanctuary also showcases some lesser known but equally adorable endangered species including the Southern Bettong, Eastern Quolls and rare Fluffy Gliders. 

 

From here we travel to historic Churchill Island and see sheep-sharing in action. At the koala conservation centre we take a stroll along among the treetops and view the numerous wild koalas up close at this iconic wildlife attraction. We arrive at Summerland beach just before dusk for the nightly penguin parade.  Home to Victoria’s largest colony of little penguins, Summerland beach provides a spectacular backdrop to the world famous penguin parade.  Watch as hundreds of little penguins make their way across the beach and go home for the night. Come and enjoy the beauty and native wildlife of Phillip Island and make this a journey to remember.

 

Your tour departs Melbourne daily at approx 11.00 (summer months) and approx 10.00 (winter months). It includes entry fee to Moonlit Sanctuary, Churchill Island & Penguin Parade,  light lunch, tea/coffee and biscuits, a friendly informative tour guide and travel in a small group with likeminded people.  Don’t forget warm clothing as it can get chilly on the Island.
