We’ll take you to all the best spots on Phillip Island, starting with the Maru 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.
Watch the seals play on the rocks from the special observation cameras at The Nobbies, before visiting the Nobbies Information Centre. Walk the boardwalk and view the powerful ocean force as it creates a blowhole.
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.
