Heading out of Melbourne you will begin your day by enjoying a guided ranger experience through the Phillip Island Koala Reserve. See plenty of native Australian wildlife in their natural habitat before travelling over the bridge and onto Phillip Island.

Known for its natural beauty, Phillip Island is full of sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and unique wildlife experiences and is home to a colony of around 3,200 little penguins.

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. Take time-out to immerse yourself in the interactive WWF Antarctic Journey, experience this state-of-the art fun, educational and virtual world located beneath the Nobbies centre.

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