Penguins Plus – Upgrade to the superior Penguins Plus viewing platform for a more personalised viewing experience. Limited to 300 people, this viewing platform provides a closer look at the Penguins on Parade. Its design was inspired by the natural elements of the surrounding landscape and mirrors the coves of Phillip Island’s spectacular southern coastline. Cost – $35 per person.
Please Note: Penguins Plus upgrades are limited during Australian school holidays and from late December to the end of January and cannot be guaranteed.
We’ll take you to all the best spots on Phillip Island, starting with the Australian Wildlife Park, where you can feed kangaroos, get your photo taken with a koala, and catch a glimpse of other incredible critters, like emus, wombats, and dingoes (some experiences at Maru Wildlife Park at own expense).
Next, we take walk along the wild coastal line of Cape Woolamai overlooking the spectacular Bass Strait. Pass by the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, one of Australia’s best-loved sporting venues, before we make our way to Swan Lake (seasonal) to watch the colourful selection of wetland birds frolic in their stunning surroundings.
We’ll also take you to Seal Rocks, where you can see playful seals basking in the sun, The Nobbies, The Blowhole, and Summerlands, a rugged surf beach tucked away beneath impressive cliffs.
To finish, we’ll watch the Penguin Parade as it makes its way up the beach as the day comes to a close. This iconic event is the perfect way to end a fantastic day. Afterwards, it’s time to head back to Melbourne and back to reality.
