Explore the beauty of Phillip Island as you observe penguins, koalas, and seals in their natural habitats. This small group Phillip Island day tour embodies the unspoiled beauty of the region and includes its gourmet delights.

Begin your tour with a journey to Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park. Here you will enjoy a guided wildlife walk where you will have the opportunity to meet and hand-feed many species of native Australian animals. Learn about iconic species such as kangaroos, koalas, emus and wallabies, as well as some lesser known favourites including quolls, owls, bandicoots, and Tasmanian devils.

Following your Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife tour, journey to the Phillip Island Winery for afternoon tea. Treat your palate and sample a range of locally produced wines and a selection of Gippsland's finest cheeses and other gourmet produce. As you taste, listen to a presentation about each item of food sampled for an experience that is educational as well as truly mouth-watering.

During your visit to Point Grant and The Nobbies, enjoy scenic views over Westernport Bay and Bass Strait. Keep an eye out for Seal Rocks, home to Australia's largest population of fur seals. Every night, the world's smallest penguins waddle ashore after spending the day fishing out at sea. 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. You'll enjoy a complimentary hot beverage while viewing the Penguin Parade. To end your tour, explore the Visitor Centre, where you can get information on the local activities and events.

On your Philliip Island small group tour, get up-close and personal with Australian wildlife, visit a winery, sample cheeses, see seals and native penguins in their habitats. This is a comprehensive and delicious tour of Australia's natural wonders.
