Heading out of Melbourne with Autopia Tours you begin the day at Maru Koala and Animal Park to meet some furry Australian favourites. Handfeed the kangaroos and get up close and friendly with koalas and other native wildlife.

Travel over the bridge and onto Phillip Island, known for its natural beauty, sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and unique wildlife experiences.

Check out the giant surf at Woolamai Beach and take time to enjoy a tranquil coastal walk.

Head to the new marine centre at the Nobbies and stroll the boardwalk to view the majestic rocky coast, home to a colony of Australian fur seals.

View the award winning visitor centre and as the sun fades, witness the world's littlest penguins emerge from the sea and waddle ashore. It is a truly magical and unforgettable experience.
