Unforgettable Wildlife Experiences and Lowest Price Guaranteed

Every night at sunset, the truly incredible spectacle of the Penguin Parade occurs on the beaches of Phillip Island. The local colony of little penguins emerges from the water to make their way to the burrows in the sand dunes - and this tour is your chance to witness this unforgettable phenomenon in real life! We’ll spend the day exploring top attractions including Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park and the Nobbies, before settling in on the sand, ready for the main show at the Penguin Parade. Including all entrance fees, this great value tour is the best way to discover the wild coastal scenery and delightful animals of Phillip Island.


We’ll start the day in Melbourne and head along the coast to our first stop of the day: Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park where your guide will show you around the award-winning wildlife park. Moonlit Sanctuary is home to stacks of well-known Aussie animals including kangaroos, wombats, and Tasmanian devils, plus many lesser-known species such as the spot-tailed quoll, yellow-bellied glider and long-nosed potoroo. Enjoy a ranger talk on koalas to learn more about one of Australia’s most popular marsupials. Admire the native Australian birds and reptiles, hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies or even get a photo with a fluffy koala (own expense).

We’ll continue the journey to Phillip Island, making our next stop at Cape Woolamai Beach. Watch the surfers in action and get some sand between your toes with a walk on the beach.

Next up we travel to the Nobbies, where you can wander the coastal boardwalks and admire the craggy scenery. Look out to Seal Rocks to see if you can spot any fur seals and be amazed as the blowhole shoots seawater into the air. In winter, you might get lucky and spot whales off the coast. In summer, peek inside the small burrows to see if there are any penguin chicks waiting for their parents to return home and feed them.

As the sun begins to lower, we’ll make our way to Summerland Beach ready for the main event. Once the sun has set, the little penguins will feel safe enough to emerge from the water in small groups and make their way across the beach. Take a stroll along the boardwalks to walk alongside these adorable birds as they waddle their way back to their nests with their bellies full from a day out at sea fishing.

Finally, we’ll all meet back at the bus and make our return journey to Melbourne.

Woolamai Beach is time permitting.
