Planning a late night out or a lazy morning in Melbourne, but still want to fit in a trip to Phillip Island to see the penguins? Well, we have the perfect tour for you.

We’ll pick you up at a respectable hour and travel straight down to Phillip Island.

Arriving on the island we’ll visit Seal Rocks and the Nobbies Centre to take a walk along the boardwalk and soak in the stunning views back towards the Mornington Peninsula from Phillip Island’s most westerly point. From here you can also get a sneak peek of the main event, the Little Penguins, while they hide under the boardwalks and poke their heads out of the burrows waiting for dusk when their mates return from the ocean.

Just before sunset we head over to the Penguin Parade to take our spots at the beach, ready to see the hundreds of Little Penguins as they make their way across the sand and return to their burrows in the sand dunes. See them reunited with their partners, where they give each other a little kiss, do a dance, then waddle up and into their burrows.

With your group size guaranteed to be no larger than 24 guests, we ensure there is plenty of opportunity to get out and explore nature at its very best. Our friendly & engaging guides will help you create some travel memories to last a lifetime.
