What to Expect
Take a full-day of Melbourne and Phillip Island in a small group to get the best of the city and one of its most beautiful nearby attractions. The city tour covers a good part of Melbourne and its inner suburbs, including the elegant city center, with all the glory of the 19th-Century architecture from the time of the Gold Rush to the time of Federation and beyond.

Listen to stories of the men and women who made the city one of the greatest in the world. Melbourne was the capital city of Australia from 1901 to 1927, and in some ways it still is. Recognized as the Australian center for culture, fashion, sports, and gastronomy, the city tour is truly memorable, with simply dozens of highlights including:

Southern Cross Station
Collins St
Rialto Building
Supreme Court
Old Royal Mint
Flagstaff Gardens
Queen Victoria Market (except Monday and Wednesdays)
Melbourne University
Lygon St
Melbourne Museum
Royal Exhibition Building
Carlton Gardens
Victorian Cottages
And many, many more.

You will also go to the Eureka Skydeck 88, next to Southgate, where you will find many options for lunch.

Afterwards, your guide will pick you up from the Eureka Skydeck for an amazing tour to Phillip Island. Visit the Koala Conservation Center to see koalas up close in their natural habitat. Look out too for wallabies and echidnas. From the Nobbies and Seals Rock, appreciate the full force of the ocean. Home to Australia’s largest colony of fur seals, you may also see penguins.

Continue to the town of Cowes for a stroll along the main road and the pier, or have dinner (summer only) in one of the town’s lovely restaurants.

Arrive at the Penguin Parade Visitor Center, with time to shop, have a coffee, or walk straight to the viewing platform, where you can experience one of Australia's most popular spectacles. Each night at sunset Little Penguins return ashore after a day's fishing and waddle up the beach. The smallest species of penguin in the world, they will round off your full-day tour in the most magical way possible.
