Koalas and Penguins Day Tour from Melbourne

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 at the city's most colorful attraction, the iconic Brighton Beach bathing boxes, for an opportunity to visit the beach and take some time to admire these historic landmarks. Then you'll head 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 favorites including quolls, owls, bandicoots, and Tasmanian devils. Included in your visit is the spectacular "Conservation in Action" wildlife show, which showcases a number of lesser-known Australian species in a series of interactive and engaging ranger presentations.

Following your Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife tour, you'll journey to Phillip Island. You'll visit Point Grant and The Nobbies, enjoy scenic views over Westernport Bay and the 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. Your guide will ensure you are able to get the very best vantage point to enjoy the Penguin Parade. To end your tour, explore the Visitor Centre, where you can get information on the local activities and events.

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