Phillip Island is home to an astounding array of wildlife, including Australia's largest fur seal colony, the Little Penguins and cuddly koalas. Only 90 minutes from Melbourne, the island features spectacular coastal scenery, charming heritage and an abundance of wildlife.

With Australian Pacific Touring, enjoy getting close to koalas and kangaroos in their natural habitats before joining the Little Penguins at dusk as they emerge from the surf and waddle to their burrows. Each night at sunset the world's smallest penguins come ashore after a day's fishing at sea and it is truly a memorable natural wildlife experience. The elevated boardwalks and viewing stands allow you to enjoy all the action without disturbing them or their burrow homes. The Phillip Island Nature Park also offers three up-close ways to witness the Penguin spectacle.
