Phillip Island Penguins Plus Private Tour


An excellent full day tour which starts by a drive through of Melbourne & Toorak, before heading to Phillip Island. If you would like to do a wine tasting we could stop off at the PUPPLE HEN Winery. 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. (Penguins Plus tickets Included)
There are plenty of other ticketing options available so please ask.

A Recent Review of this tour

Peter facilitated a fantastic tour of Phillip Island. Enroute we visited a koala conservation park to see koalas up close, even seeing them interacting. He included for us the Blue Hen Winery with beautiful water views, delicious wine, and NO tour buses. After a great view of the beach, Peter took a back way into the penguin observation area, where we had undergraduate viewing slots, giving us front row seats. Peter's good humor, deep knowledge, and personal attention to our requests demands big kudos
