You will go on a journey down the South Gippsland coastal highway with Go West Tours where you will cross the bridge over the eastern entrance of the majestic Western Port bay. The Phillip Island experience starts at the award winning Rhyll Trout & Bush Tucker Farm.

From here travel to the famous Koala Conservation Centre to meet some of the friendly locals. You will walk among the treetops and view the numerous wild koalas up close at this iconic wildlife attraction.

The next stop is at the Phillip Island Winery, overlooking the famous Berry's Beach. Sample not only the locally produced wines, but also a selection of Gippsland's finest cheeses.

And then it is onwards to the main event, where just after dark every night the world's smallest penguins waddle ashore after spending the day fishing out at sea. You will be truly enchanted as the stars of the show emerge from the surf and pass right before your eyes on their journey back to their homes. Your guide will ensure you are able to get the very best vantage point to enjoy the Penguin Parade and will help to keep you toasty warm with a complimentary hot cuppa.
