Phillip Island Penguin Parade Day Tour

Phillip Island Penguin Parade Day Tour - Bushwalking, Nature & WildlifeSo completely Australian - unique in the world. Every evening at dusk the Little Penguins come home from the sea at Phillip Island. From the waves - across the beach - to the sand dunes - the Little Penguins can almost be touched as they waddle to their burrows. Sunset at Summerland Beach has drawn millions of visitors to Phillip Island.

HOT OFFER!! This tour now features Penguins Plus premium viewing as an exclusive standard inclusion at no extra cost! The Viewing Platform offers a premium position for the best views of the Penguins. We also now have FREE WI-FI on our coaches!

It is the nightly ritual of these little flightless birds which will enthrall you as you observe from the beach and the elevated boardwalk. Koalas - totally Australian - peering down from the gum trees where they live.

Seals near the sea, basking in the late sunlight on halftide rocks compliment this island, rich in wildlife which makes Phillip Island a very special place.

An exciting new development is the world's first Underground covered viewing facility. Protected from the elements, it is the perfect spot to watch the penguins close-up at eye-level. For everyone's comfort and safety, maximum capacity for this option is 70 people. A dedicated Ranger is on-hand to provide information and answer any questions. A television screen will let you know once penguins have started to arrive on the beach. As a bonus, Underground Penguins Plus also has access to Penguins Plus (the platform directly above Underground).
