Tour highlights:
  • Penguin Parade
    Take a seat on the beach for sunset, then witness the nightly arrival of the Little Penguins from their ocean feeding and follow them as they march home to their burrows for a well-earned rest. The penguin parade of Phillip Island is famous around the world and a must-see in Australia.
  • The Nobbies
    The Nobbies is at the very tip of Phillip Island - it offers spectacular coastal views across the ocean to Mornington Peninsula, Seal Rocks and rocky outcrops of The Nobbies themselves. While here do the 1.2 km boardwalk around to the Blowhole and if you're lucky see some penguins in their burrows.
