Phillip Island Tour Itinerary
Your animal adventures will start with a visit to Moonlit Sanctuary Conservation Park where you won’t even have time to take photos as there will be fascinating Australian animals at every turn. You have up-close encounters with animals like kangaroos, wombats and echidnas.
Next, we will head to the island (Phillip Island) where will head to Woolamai Surf Beach to catch a glimpse of the awesome waves and die-hard surfers. (weather permitting).
We then cross the island to reach the dramatic west coast and the Nobbies where you will be awe-struck by the crashing waves.
And finally, it’s time for the main event, the Penguin Parade. There is a reason that this is one of Australia’s top attractions and the little penguins will not disappoint! You will sit on the protective platform to see possibly hundreds of little penguins waddling onto the beach. This fabulous natural spectacular is run by a non-for-profit organisation where all profits are directly reinvested in conservation efforts to protect the little penguins.
Your Oceania24 Guide will take you back to Melbourne.
*If you prefer not to advise a pick up hotel, we will collect you from the Travelodge Southbank – 9 Riverside Quay Southbank.
