Melbourne – Phillip Island and Penguin Parade
Phillip Island is a treasure trove of Australian wildlife; seals, koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, birdlife and penguins!
Visit Churchill Island where you can explore this working farm or simply enjoy ocean views from the cafe.
At Koala Conservation Centre, look for koalas in their natural habitat and before sunset, you will head to the Penguin Parade where you can wander through the “Penguin Experience” exhibit to learn more about them.
Walk out to Summerland Beach and take your seat from the exclusive Penguins Plus premium viewing area for best views of the penguins’ arrival as they waddle cautiously from the beach to their burrows after a long day out at sea.
A dinner stop will be made before or after the Penguin Parade (dependent on season and at own expense).
Please bring warm, waterproof clothing as nights can be cold on the island in any season. The Penguin Parade is a natural phenomenon taking place in the open outdoors.
