The Penguin Parade Penguins Plus Premium Viewing Tour

Gray Line Melbourne

Join Gray Line Melbourne for the magical Penguin Parade experience. Every evening at dusk the little penguins come home from the sea at Phillip Island. From the waves, across the beach, to the sand dunes the little penguins are so close they could almost be touched as they waddle to their burrows.

Meet wallabies and look out for native birds at Churchill Island Farm or perhaps enjoy afternoon tea at your own expense.

Visit the Koala Conservation Centre where you can see koalas in their natural habitat from treetop boardwalks.

Seals near the sea, basking in the late sunlight on half tide rocks compliment this island, rich in wildlife making Phillip Island a very special place.

Sunset at Summerland Beach has drawn millions of visitors to Phillip Island. It is the nightly ritual of these little flightless birds which will enthral you as you observe from the beach and elevated boardwalk. Experience this phenomenon from the Penguins Plus Premium Viewing Area, a standard inclusion on all Gray Line Penguin Parade tours.

Tour now includes free Wi-Fi on board the coach.
