Day 1: Day Phillip Island Penguin Parade & Koala Highlights from Melbourne
Get up close with a host of Australian wildlife, see the fantastic coastline of Phillip Island and then witness one of Australia’s most spectacular wildlife experiences as hundreds of tiny penguins waddle ashore! You’ll also get the chance to get up close to koalas in their natural habitat and enjoy the spectacular rugged beauty of Phillip Island. We begin our day with a stop at the Phillip Island Koala Conservation Reserve, where you’ll be making some new friends with our local Australian animals as you stroll along the boardwalk trails in natural woodlands in search of koalas. Phillip Island is famous for its natural beauty, stunning beaches, rugged cliffs, and unique wildlife; it's then to the western end of the island to the Nobbies. Experience the majestic rocky coast and views of an Australian fur seal colony and spot wild wallabies and native birds on a back road journey to the main show at the Penguin Parade. There is no better ecotourism attraction in the world than the Penguin Parade Visitor Centre, where guests can learn more about penguins and wildlife conservation. Before witnessing the world’s smallest penguins emerge from the sea and waddle ashore at sunset. It’s truly a magical and unforgettable experience!
