We’ll take you to all the best spots on Phillip Island, starting with the Australian Wildlife Park, where you can feed kangaroos, cuddle baby koalas, and catch a glimpse of other incredible critters, like emus, wombats, and dingoes.
For a quick snack, we’ll stop off at the Chocolate Factory where you can sample delicious treats and take a walk along the wild coastline of Cape Woolamai. Then it’s onto 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.
