A Tour With A Difference

On the way to Phillip Island A Tour with a Difference, will stop at the Gurdies Boutique Winery to sample some of the best local wines and enjoy eating a range of cheeses with fresh crusty bread and crackers.

Then visit the Phillip Island Chocolate Factory. Enjoy free samples. Be amazed at the works of art created with chocolate on exhibit in the Chocolate Art Gallery. Be an artist for a day, you can create something yourself.

After the Chocolate Factory head to Phillip Island Wildlife Park where you can get close and personal with Koalas, hand feed the dozens of Kangaroos and Wallabies, see Wombats, Emus and many more Australian animals.

Stop for dinner at Cowes, the heart and soul of Phillip Island. Have time to browse around after dinner, only in summer.

End the day at Summerland Beach. It has Victoria's largest colony of Little Penguins. These Little Penguins are the smallest of all penguin species reaching only 33 centimetres in height when fully grown.

At dusk hundreds arrive from their long day out at sea and make their way up the beach to the nesting area, this is of course the highlight of the whole day.
