Little Penguins2 x Full day tour includes Penguins Plus
If you’re a lover of fine food and fabulous fauna, then this is definitely the tour for you! Our Phillip Island day tour visits the very best of the Gippsland region’s gourmet attractions, where your sampling of the local produce is all included in the tour price. The first destination on our Phillip Island tour is the award-winning Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park for a unique Australian wildlife experience. Here, we’ll enjoy a guided wildlife walk where we have the opportunity to meet and hand-feed many species of native Australian animals. Our next stop on the Phillip Island day tour journey is to the delightful Phillip Island Winery. You’ll enjoy a structured sampling of not only the locally produced wines, but also a selection of Gippsland’s finest cheeses and other gourmet produce.

Then we’ll reach what will undoubtedly be the highlight of your Phillip Island tour. We’ll head onwards to the main event, where just after dark the world’s smallest penguins parade ashore after spending the day fishing out at sea. You’ll be truly enchanted as the stars of the show emerge from the surf and pass right before your eyes on their journey back to their homes. You’ll have access to the Penguins Plus boardwalk, where you’ll enjoy unrivalled views of the nightly parade. With local rangers on hand to provide interpretation of the world’s smallest penguins and their fascinating lives. After the parade we allow plenty of time to explore the Visitor Centre.
