Phillip Island Ultimate Eco Penguins Tour
The Phillip Island Penguin Parade tour highlights the best of Victoria's nature and wildlife. Get up close and personal with the friendly residents of Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies, have your photo taken with a koala and learn about the conservation of these amazing animals.
Here’s the very best of Victoria’s wildlife, nature and farming heritage. The Penguin Parade is an absolute ‘must’ on every visitor’s itinerary, but this tour gives you so much more. First stop is Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, where you can hand-feed cute wallabies* on the wallaby walk (you may see little joeys peeking out of their mothers’ pouches) and cuddle a koala*. There are rare sightings of endangered Australian wildlife in this Eco-accredited sanctuary too.
On tiny Churchill Island there’s an 1850’s heritage farm with strutting peacocks, shaggy Highland cattle, traditional draft horses, sheep shearing and working dogs in action. Then on to the Nobbies and Australia’s largest Fur Seal colony at Seal Rocks. Finally, the ultimate attraction: hundreds of Little Penguins pooping out of the sea and waddling across the beach to their sand dune burrows in the Penguin Parade. Tour conclusion depends on time of year and ranges from 10pm during the winter months to midnight during summer as the penguins arrive at sunset.
