Travel directly to the Phillip Island Penguin Parade, and watch the famous parade of penguins.
What to Expect
Enjoy a scenic two-hour drive to Phillip Island, with commentary and a half-way break. Tour operators will allow extra time for potential afternoon traffic delays and, if possible, take a scenic drive around part of the island before arriving at the Penguin Parade, approximately one hour before the penguins are due to appear.
There is time for a meal in the cafe and souvenir shopping, and an opportunity to learn about the little penguins in the visitor center. You'll then be seated in the larger General Viewing area, and watch as the penguins emerge from the sea and march across the beach to their sand dune burrows. You can also enjoy closer penguin viewing along the boardwalks, which are behind the seating area. Your driver and guide will advise you on the best spots to sit for getting the most out of your tour. After an hour of penguin viewing, you'll return to Melbourne.
