Itinerary

Melbourne - Phillip Island - Melbourne

Today enjoy an fantastic combination tour and day trip from Melbourne to Phillip Island, home to the famous Little Penguins and Penguin Parade.

Departing from Melbourne we'll head out to the Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife conservation Park on Mornington Peninsula, where you'll get to meet many native Australian animals, including wombats, dingoes, emus, Tasmanian devils, and numerous colorful birds. While here take the "Wallaby Walk" to get up and personal with friendly kangaroos and wallabies. And don't miss the chance to take a photo with a koala (own expense)!

Then we'll board the Wildlife Coast Adventure cruise to go seal watching. We'll pass by The Nobbies along the way and reach Seal Rock, the home of Australia's largest colony of fur seals. See up to 5000 fur seals close-up and keep your camera ready because they regularly approach the boat to say hello!

Then we'll head into the Phillip Island Nature Park, a natural home to koalas, penguins, and seals. Here we'll enjoy a great experience: the Penguin Parade. Watch from a viewing area as dozens of penguins march out across the floodlit Summerland Beach. We'll also be able to see penguin rookeries from an elevated boardwalk.

Along the way back to Melbourne we'll enjoy a featured film.

Tips:
This tour departs at 10:00am and returns between 9:00pm and 11:30pm depending on the season.

    Phillip Island is a nice place to visit

    The trip to Phillip Island for the penguin march was a highlight of our day tour. We also got a chance to feed kangaroos and I loved every minute. Highly recommended!

    Excellent driver

    "This comment is primarily directed at the tour guide/bus driver, Mr. Geoff Phillips. Our drop off wasn't stated (we forgot), but we wanted to go to Glen Waverly, so he went out of his way to get us to the Novotel in GW. He did the courtesy... of sending us back anyways, which i truly thank him for. Another thing is that he made an incredible open commentary throughout the tour. We've been to a few tours in our time, and I can say that this one stands out. He has a thorough knowledge of Melbourne and it's locales, paced perfectly and spoken smoothly. I hope that Gray Line can convey our sincerest regards to Mr. Phillips. He, and Gray Line made our first trip to Melbourne a memorable one. Yours, The Lim Family" Read full review
