Penguins Parade Evening Tour

Explore the beauty of Phillip Island as you observe penguins in their natural habitat. Watch the colony of waddling birds return home to their burrows on your Penguins Parade Evening Tour. This small group Phillip Island day tour embodies the unspoiled beauty of the region. With so much to do in Melbourne, this round trip evening tour will make the most of your limited time in the area. You tour leaves from Melbourne and follows the Yarra River through the city and beyond to Phillip Island.

First visit the Phillip Island Information Center, where you will learn about the local wildlife. The center has a range of maps and information on other regions throughout Victoria and Australia, as well. The trained staff and volunteers can assist with any general questions. After learning about the native wildlife, see the penguins waddle ashore after spending the day fishing out at sea. These amazing creatures are the smallest penguin species in the world. As the main event of your Phillip Island tour, you'll be amazed as the penguins emerge from the sea and parade past you on their way back to their homes. In addition, you can also spot migratory shearwaters as well as other migratory birds. Your tour ends with a return trip to your starting point.

On your Phillip Island small group tour, witness the migratory habits of the world's smallest penguins, learn about native wildlife in the information center, and enjoy the raw beauty of the region.
