Tour Description

If you’d like to see the Little Penguins at Phillip Island’s Penguin Parade but don’t have a lot of spare time, this tour is perfect for you. Enjoy a half-day tour to see the penguins, learning about these amazing birds at the education centre along the way.

• Your friendly tour guide will entertain you with commentary during your scenic journey along beautiful coastal roads
• Visit the island’s Penguin Complex and Education Centre to learn about the fascinating Little Penguin
• Watch in awe as the cute Little Penguins make their way up the beach and head for their burrows


Driving along a scenic coastal route and views of Western Port Bay, French Island and the infamous Moto GP race track, you’ll arrive at Phillip Island just in time to enjoy a delicious dinner at one of the island’s popular eateries (at own expense). After dinner, you’ll head over to the Penguin Parade, where you’ll be able to visit the Penguin Complex and Education Centre, where you will learn about the amazing Little Penguin, their eating, breeding and living habits, via a number of interactive displays. You can browse the penguin souvenirs and pick out something to take home with you (own expense).

Then, it’s time to find a comfortable seat and settle in for the main event – the amazing Penguin Parade! Watch as hundreds of fascinating Little Penguins (Fairy Penguins) waddle up from out of the ocean and head towards their night time sand dune burrows. You’ll witness the cute personality traits of these enthralling little sea birds and see them interacting with each other and their surroundings.

At the end of your amazing day, you’ll be returned to Melbourne and your accommodation at around 9 pm in winter, or midnight in summer.
