1 Day Phillip Island Tour - Wildlife Tours

Phillip Island on Victoria’s South Coast is home to a colony of around 32,000 Little Penguins. Each night, hundreds (sometimes thousands!) of penguins emerge from the surf and waddle across the beach at the world-famous Penguin Parade. This full-day tour includes nature walks along Phillip Island’s stunning beaches and boardwalks, meeting some of the local furry residents and of course the Penguin Parade.
