Wildlife & zoos
Explore the incredible range of wildlife that calls Victoria home. Watch penguins on parade at Phillip Island. See emus, wombats and lyrebirds in the wild. Visit national parks to see kangaroos, glow worms, platypus and Tasmanian devils in their natural habitat. Watch for whales at Warrnambool between June and September, or meet bottlenose dolphins and fur seals in Port Phillip Bay.
In their natural habitat
Watch from the shore, or join an organised expedition to swim with or cruise alongside Port Phillip Bay's friendly bottlenose and common dolphins.
Experience that electrifying moment as you spot the first penguins emerging from the sea and waddling along a Phillip Island beach at dusk.
Watch these breathtaking mammals, the southern right whale and blue whale, from the shoreline as they migrate to the coast of Victoria each year.
