Our first stop is a surfer’s dream beach, Cape Woolamai. From here we will lace up the boots and start our hike that will guide you through rugged rock formations, known as the Pinnacles. As we make our way around the Nature Park of Phillip Island you can witness stunning views over the Bass Strait and pounding surf below.
After our easy/moderate 6.8km hike we will head into Cowes for a delicious lunch or snack at a local café before we make our way to the Phillip Island Koala Reserve. Stroll through this eucalypt woodland and come ‘face-to-face’ with koalas in their natural habitat. The Koala Reserve’s unique tree top boardwalks and close viewing areas allow visitors to see how truly amazing koalas are.
Our next stop is The Nobbies for an easy stroll along the boardwalk to discover breathtaking coastline views and the impressive thundering blowhole. This area is home to Australia’s largest seal colony, little penguins, and silver gulls.
And to finish the day we will take a waddle on the wild side and see hundreds (sometimes thousands) of penguins emerge from the surf at sunset at the world-famous Penguin Parade. This experience is a wildlife lover’s dream!

Join James and Mette, nature lovers, hikers and seekers on a Hike & Seek tour.
While hiking through Victoria’s Sealers Cove in Wilson Promontory they came up with the idea of Hike & Seek as a way of combining their love of nature, nutrition, travel and good times with fellow travellers and locals alike.
So they set out on a mission to find the most beautiful and epic hiking destinations all within a short drive from Melbourne. What better way to see all that Victoria has to offer than in a VW Kombi van, the original adventurer. They named her Olivia and restored her for maximum comfort on the road. Since the humble beginnings they have introduced a few newer model VW to the fleet, Biggie and Panda. Both are built for adventure and share the same free-spirited soul of what we set out to offer through Hike & Seek.
The intimate, small group hiking tours have been designed for other like-minded folk who share the same enthusiasm, curiosity and sense of respect for nature and the outdoors that they have.
If that sounds like you, go ahead and explore with Hike & Seek tours.
