Tour Description

This delightful half-day tour takes you along gorgeous coastal roads on your way to see the Little Penguins at the Phillip Island Penguin Parade.

• Enjoy Melbourne’s best short-duration penguin tour, leaving you plenty of time to see other attractions if you’re only in Melbourne for a short stay
• Traveling along beautiful coastal roads
• Learn about the Little Penguins at the award winning education centre
• Delight in watching hundreds of adorable Little Penguins waddle up the beach

Meeting at the nominated pickup location you’ll be greeted by your friendly and experienced tour guide as you hop aboard your comfortable tour coach. Travelling alongside beautiful coastal vistas, you’ll head towards Phillip Island.

While visiting the Penguin Complex and Education Centre, you’ll learn about the lives of the amazing Little Penguin (Fairy Penguin) through interactive displays. Buy a souvenir before heading to the Penguin Parade viewing area, where the main event begins. Here, you’ll be in awe as you witness hundreds of Little Penguins coming up from the ocean and settling down for the night in their sand dune beach burrows. Watch as these adorable little sea birds waddle up the beach, preening themselves, calling out to their fellow penguins and interacting with each other. It’s truly a magical experience and a must-do when visiting the area.

At the end of the night, you’ll be returned to your original pickup location in Melbourne, arriving at about 10 pm during winter months, or midnight during summer months.
