￼￼￼Witness the world-famous Penguin Parade and more on a visit to nature's wonderland
With pristine white beaches and iconic wildlife experiences, there is so much to see and do on Phillip Island, just 90-minutes from Melbourne.
On arrival at Phillip Island visit the rugged surf beach of Cape Woolamai and breathe deeply what is considered the cleanest air in the world. Then on to the Koala Conservation Centre and wander the treetop walkway offering superb eye-level viewing of Australia’s most-loved and cuddly marsupial. Keep an eye out for resident wallabies and echidna’s that can often be spotted in the surrounding bushland.
Stroll the boardwalks around The Nobbies absorbing coastal views at lookout points set amongst natural sea bird gardens. Be transfixed by the thundering blowhole and keep your eyes out for a rare sighting of the iconic little penguins.
As the sun begins to set, the journey continues along the Summerland Peninsula toward the Penguin Parade visitor centre. Travel off- road along the rugged island coastline and spot wild wallabies and Cape Barren geese as they graze at dusk.
Prior to the arrival of the penguins, join a local ranger who will lead you on an intimate and informative journey through the penguin colony. Take your seat away from the crowds in the wonderfully located beachfront viewing stand offering superb viewing of the penguins emerging from the water and crossing the beach. Watch in awe as members of the 32,000 strong Penguin colony waddle their way to their nests.
Dinner will be served in popular seaside village of Cowes at a favourite local restaurant serving a palette-pleasing menu that demonstrates the freshest seasonal produce the island and its surrounds have to offer.
