Oceania Tours and Safaris

Let Oceania Tours and Safaris whisk you away to discover the unique nature experiences and dramatic landscapes of Phillip Island. Your unforgettable day will commence with a trip to the historic working farm on tiny Churchill island, an up-close encounter with koalas at the Koala Conservation Centre and a stunning boardwalk along the dramatic coastline at the Nobbies.

In the summer months, you will have some free time in the town of Cowes to explore, shop or taste some local seafood (not included). And finally, to the island's black tie gala event: the Penguin Parade. From the Visitor's Centre, you will meander along the boardwalk to the viewing platform and watch the little penguins come ashore, decked out in their tuxedos as they hurry off to find their burrows.

All Oceania Tours run with a minimum of two and a maximum of 12 passengers. Pick-up and drop-off from your Melbourne hotel is included.

Visit Oceania's website for full details on the options provided and recommendations based on the weather.
