Phillip Island Penguin Parade Tour
Have fun on this afternoon half day tour, your meeting point will be in our offices between 11:00 AM and 12:00 PM, to start your trip to the most colorful attraction in the city, the iconic Brighton Beach baths, and have the opportunity to visit the beach and you will have time to admire these historical monuments.
You will continue your journey to Phillip Island through the suburbs of Melbourne Bay on the way to the Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park for a unique experience of Australian wildlife. There, you will enjoy a guided wildlife walk where you will have the opportunity to meet and feed many species of native Australian animals. You will learn about emblematic species such as kangaroos, koalas, emus and wallabies, as well as some of our lesser-known favorites, such as quolls, owls, bandicoots and Tasmanian devils.
Included in our visit here is the wildlife show "Conservation in action," which shows a series of lesser-known Australian species in a series of interactive and interesting park ranger presentations.
Continuing towards Phillip Island, a visit to Point Grant and The Nobbies gives us the opportunity to enjoy views over Westernport Bay and Bass Strait, including Seal Rocks, home to the largest population of sea lions in Australia.
And then you will arrive at what will be the final point of your Phillip Island tour, the main event, where just after dark the smaller penguins parade ashore after spending the day fishing in the sea. You'll be delighted as the stars of the show emerge from the waves and pass before your eyes on their way back to their homes. Your tour guide will help you make sure you can get the best possible location to enjoy the famous penguin parade.
Just at dusk, when some visitors begin to doubt that the birds arrive, dark spots appear in the shallow waters. You hear the familiar "huk huk" call of the penguins and appear magically at the water's edge. The penguins are standing in the shallow waters, sometimes they retreat to the sea if they feel danger, recover confidence and return to the beach. They usually regroup, sometimes with more than 100 birds, and make their way to the dunes.
After having appreciated such a spectacular stage you will return to Melbourne around 9:00 PM.
