Everyone's favourite tour is the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island, where you see hundreds of Little Penguins waddle up the beach to their burrows in the nearby sand hills every evening.

Your private tour provides access to the Penguins Plus boardwalk, where you'll enjoy the best views. With local rangers on hand to provide information regarding the world's smallest penguins and their fascinating lives, this option is a must.

There is also an optional Private Penguin Parade - join a fully ranger-guided group of no more than ten at the Penguin Parade for an experience you'll never forget. This includes priority seating in front of the general viewing area, and access to the Penguins Plus boardwalk. A minimum age of 12 years applies to this upgrade.

The tour by Meridian Tours can also visit to the koala conservation centre set in native bush land, where visitors can walk among the treetops and see wild koalas up close.
