Experience all the highlights of Phillip Island on this one day tour! Get up close and personal with incredible Aussie wildlife including the iconic Furry Penguin! Visit the Nobbies for your dose of nature and some spectacular photo opportunities. While you're there, also keep your eyes peeled for sightings of fur sals and waterbirds!
Your tour heads south east to skirt Westernport Bay, noted for its mangroves and waterbirds. View French Island, a one time penal colony. At Churchill Island you'll have the opportunity to meet wallabies/kangaroos and perhaps enjoy afternoon tea (at own expense).
San Remo fishing village is the gateway to Phillip Island, a major tourist resort and the home for unique wildlife. We'll guide you around this small island of some 100 square kilometres with time at the township of Cowes. Visit the Koala Conservation Centre where you can see koalas from tree top boardwalks and a stop at Seal Rocks where you'll have time to walk on the boardwalk overlooking the Nobbies.
Witness the world phenomenon of the Penguin Parade. The Little Penguins return from the sea each evening at dusk after spending the day up to 100km off shore. Watch as they leave the sea, cross the beach and go to their burrows. Walk through the Visitor Centre's "Penguin World" and learn of the life of the Little Penguin. (Please bring warm waterproof clothing as nights can be cold on the island in any season).
