Phillip Island is a veritable wonderland of Australian native wildlife. Witness Phillip Island's little penguins on parade, watch seals fishing from the rocks, and spy koalas dozing up in the treetops.
Make the pilgrimage to the Penguin Parade, a Phillip Island institution, and observe the little penguins as they emerge from the sea and waddle across the beach to their sand dune burrows. The Penguin Parade Visitor Centre at Phillip Island Nature Park has a range of great activities and displays to help understand these icons of the island.
Join a wildlife cruise to see the colony of 25,000 Australian fur seals at Seal Rocks, and spot koalas as you wander among the treetops at the Koala Conservation Centre. Count the wading birds in the wetlands at Rhyll Inlet or, if you're visiting in April/May, watch the annual shearwater migration from rugged bluffs at Cape Woolamai.
Hear the kids squeal with delight as they hand-feed wallabies and kangaroos at the local wildlife park or catch the excitement of the midday pelican feeding at San Remo jetty.
