Full description

Embark on a private small-group guided tour of Phillip Island beginning with a pickup directly from your chosen Melbourne Hotel, in an air-conditioned vehicle. En route, stop off at a popular local Wildlife Park. Meet some of Australia's iconic animals and hand-feed kangaroo's in their natural environment. Head to Churchill island and visit a famous old heritage working farm. Experience some old traditional farming techniques and activities, including sheep shearing, a working dogs demonstration, and whip cracking.  Go to The Koala Conservation Center to explore the boardwalks and see koalas up close in their natural habitat. Get the chance to visit some quieter locations of the island with your guide, an excellent opportunity for some wildlife spotting. After dinner, visit the Nobbies Center, home to Australia's largest fur seal population and an incredible cliff-top boardwalk with panoramic views out to sea.

Make a last stop at the Penguin Parade - the main highlight for any visit to Phillip Island. Take your seats and experience one of nature's most natural wildlife sights. Be shown the best vantage spots from your guide who will also supply you with binoculars, cushions, and warm blankets to maximize your Penguin Parade experience.
