There are few things cuter than watching hundreds of little penguins scurry across the sand, and this day trip to Phillip Island is the perfect way to get up close to Australia's captivating wildlife. Feed kangaroos, have your photo taken with a koala, and head to the beach to watch the famous Penguin Parade at sunset.
Leave the busy city of Melbourne behind, pass by the colourful huts at Brighton Beach, and stop for morning tea en route to Phillip Island. Your first stop is at the Maru Koala & Animal Park, where you can get up close to native Aussie animals, interact with cuddly koalas, and hand-feed the friendly kangaroos.
Continue your tour by crossing over the bridge to Phillip Island, making a sweet stop at the Phillip Island Chocolate Factory to shop for goodies. Travel along the island's coast, stroll the rugged shoreline at Woolamai Beach, and walk along the board walks at Seal Rocks. At the Nobbies Centre, learn about the ecology of the island as you watch for seals, and then snap photos of the Blowhole as it spouts skyward.
Spy on wetland birds and wallabies at Swan Lake from hidden platforms, and then arrive at Summerland Beach with time to watch the crashing surf before the evening's spectacle begins. Finally, as the sun begins to dip down, be charmed and enchanted as the Penguin Parade begins. Watch as hundreds of tiny little penguins waddle, tumble, and trot across the sand to their nests before beginning your own ride back to Melbourne.
