We’ll take you to all the best spots on Phillip Island, starting with a visit to Maru Wildlife Park. Here you can meet all of your favourite Aussie animals. Get up close and personal with a cuddly koala and hand-feed the friendly mob of kangaroos. Explore this impressive wildlife park with a surprise around every corner and meet the rest of the crew like dingos, emus, wombats plus heaps more.
We travel across the island, admiring the spectacular coastal scenery along the way, to arrive at the impressive Nobbies Centre. Watch the seals play on the rocks from the special observation cameras at The Nobbies, before visiting the Nobbies Information Centre. Walk the boardwalk to admire the rugged Phillip Island coast and view the powerful ocean force as it creates a blowhole. As you wander along the picturesque boardwalk, see if you can spot any penguins in the boxes or other animals amongst the scrub.
To finish, we’ll watch the Penguin Parade as the Phillip Island little penguins make their way up the beach as the day comes to a close. Take a seat on the beach and be amazed as the little penguins emerge from the water to waddle their way across the sand and into the safety on their burrows in the sand dunes. Then, walk along the boardwalks in the sand dunes to follow the little penguins to their burrows. 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.
