Summary of The Day: A fantastic combination of two tours; one introducing you to our fabulous city of Melbourne and the other, our most adorable and popular Penguins tour to Phillip Island. It's a long day of touring but well worth the experience!
The city tour highlights include a photo stop at St Patrick's Cathedral, a visit to Fitzroy Gardens, a delightful guided walking tour through our favorite laneways and arcades and a visit to the Queen Victoria Markets.
You will have free time for lunch (own expense) before joining the second part of your tour to witness the nightly ritual of the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island. On the way, visit Churchill Island and Koala Conservation Centre where you can look for koalas in their natural habitat from tree top boardwalks.
The tour departs at around 8:10am and returns between 9:00pm and 11:30pm (dependant on season)

The upgraded Penguins Plus viewing platform at the Penguin Parade is scheduled to open up again on Monday 16 November. Capacity has doubled from 150 to 300; still very much premium viewing in comparison to the stands in general viewing.
Please bring warm, waterproof clothing as nights can be cold on the island in any season. The Penguin Parade is a natural phenomenon taking place in the open outdoors.
