Full description
This is a fantastic tour if you have other plans during the day as this tour will start in the late afternoon.

Starting from Federation Square (with select hotel pick-ups in Melbourne city), travel along the highway to the popular holiday destination of Phillip Island. As this is a direct tour to the Penguin Parade, there is time to buy dinner at the Penguin Cafe and to buy plenty of souvenirs.

Once dusk arrives, watch the gorgeous Little Penguins as they emerge from the cold waters of the bay along the beach to their burrows. The Penguin Parade is viewed from the penguins general viewing area.

It is a wonderful experience with one exception !!!! IT IS NOT ELIGIBLE TO PAY SO EXPENSIVE AND NOT TO BE ABLE TO TAKE PHOTOS WITHOUT FLASH. The staff chased people who were taking photos, take a hidden camera if you want to come back with a souvenir photo. Take absolutely warm clothes because at nightfall it is cold. Otherwise perfect we left at 3:15 pm from the hotel and returned at midnight, had 1h20 stop in Sanremo just before the Phillip Island bridge for dinner (something we did not know and which was not indicated in the program detail.) Too bad all the same that there was no information in French. they could give us an explanatory leaflet in French or an audio guide, as in the red buses.
