Phillip Island Penguins Plus Private Tour

An excellent full day tour which starts by exploring the cultural city of Melbourne, before heading along the Port Phillip Bay coastline on the way to Phillip Island. You will experience Koalas in their natural habitat at the Koala Conservation Centre. Next we will travel to the Nobbies and Seal Rocks which is home to the largest Australian Fur Seal Colony. As night falls we will discover the Penguin Parade, which is the nightly arrival of Australia's largest penguin colony with a population of around 35, 000. Watch the little penguins emerge from the sea and make their way with a waddle to their homes in the sand, The Penguin Parade is Australia's number one wildlife tourist attraction and is highlight of any visit to the area. Tour concludes with dinner before returning back to Melbourne. (Penguins Plus tickets Included)
There are plenty of other ticketing options available so please ask.
