Full description

Discover some of Australia's most well-loved creatures on a bus tour from Melbourne to Phillip Island to see the beloved Penguin Parade. See the best of Victoria’s nature and wildlife at the Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, getting up close to its animals and learning about them. During the day, get up-close-and-personal with the friendly residents of the Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, where you can hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies, have your photo taken with a koala, and learn about the conservation of these lovable native animals. While at the sanctuary, see some lesser known, but equally adorable, endangered species, including the Southern Bettong, Eastern Quolls and rare Fluffy Gliders. Visit the stunning Cape Woolamai surf beach (time permitting) and the Nobbies before arriving at Summerland Beach for the nightly Penguin Parade. Home to Victoria’s largest colony of little penguins, Summerland Beach provides a spectacular backdrop to the world famous Penguin Parade. Watch as hundreds of little penguins make their way across the beach and through the sand dunes to their burrows. Come and enjoy the beauty and native wildlife of Phillip Island and make this a journey to remember.

Very nice tour, where you’re not only going to see the penguin parade but so much more! We went to an animal sanctuary where you get to feed kangaroos and discovered other parts of Phillip Island. Maybe wouldn’t recommend to young travellers (students, backpackers). I’m 22 and a backpacker and was definitely the youngest person on the tour. Luckily I was with a friend but otherwise I would be a bit bummed about not being with people my age.

A long day with varied activities and stops along the way. Recommend upgrading to Penguin Plus or underground viewing (was booked out and not an option for us) as crowds can be large in General Viewing area during peak times. Still had a lot of fun. Bus ride very comfortable, great host. Maybe research food / dining options on Cowes before the trip (where we were dropped off for dinner).

We had Eva who was amazing as a tour guide. She was sooo sweet, passionate and informative about everything and made everything ran super smoothly. The tour itself was very enjoyable with decent amounts of stops before we got to Phillip Island and within Phillip Island which allowed us to take photos and have a break from being in the vehicle. Eva is the best tour guide EVA!
