What you can expect

This comprehensive tour will take you to the popular Phillip Island from Melbourne for a trip to view all the island's numerous varieties of wildlife, including its famous penguin parade in the evening! Departing from Melbourne in the morning and returning around midnight (this changes seasonally), you'll have a full day to take in the wonders that help make Phillip Island one of Australia's must-visit destinations while also stopping for some photo opportunities along the way. See some great and ruggedly beautiful island scenery, colonies of seals in the wild, get up close with koalas and much more.

Your first stop for the day will be at Brighton Beach bathing boxes. Here you will have some time to admire these iconic landmarks and take great pictures. Next we head to the Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, where you will have the chance to get up close with Australia’s cuddliest wildlife icons. Follow it up with a visit to Point Grant and the Nobbies. Enjoy the stunning geography on offer and explore the various wooden walkways which provide amazing views of the coast line. Cap it all off with the island's most famous highlight - the evening Penguin Parade of Little Penguins making their way up to the beach - and you've got one of the most robust Phillip Island tours on offer - so book online today!

It was an exciting experience and I would definitely recommend that to my friends.

It was fun and exciting, but it could have been better if we started earlier. so we could spend more time on the beach. The beach part was too short for me and I barely had any chance to swim. I would also recommend providing more pickup locations. it was mostly at CBD, while if it had two other locations on the way to go Phillip Islands, it did not waste the tour time and suit others like me to be picked somewhere closer to their living places. For instance, I live in Heatherton, but I had to come into the CBD, while the bus came back to a similar location again!
