What to Expect

After being picked up from your CBD accommodation in air-conditioned comfort with free wi-fi on this full-day tour, you will then explore the world-famous Healesville Sanctuary, followed by the Phillip Island penguin parade, plus more.

 

The first stop of the day is Healesville Sanctuary, where you can wander at your leisure through the sanctuary, viewing native animals such as koalas, kangaroos, platypus, birds of prey, and more. Then, sit back and enjoy animal education lessons and live shows. You'll also have time to purchase lunch here, with a choice of three different cafes for a variety of options. 

 

Next, you'll head south off the mainland to Phillip Island. Journey to the southwest corner to The Nobbies at Point Grant, a series of rock formations and an important site for Australia's largest colony of Fur Seals, where they come to breed and hunt. 

 

Stop in at the Nobbies Tourist Information Centre, where you can find out all you need to know about the Nobbies Blowhole and Seal Rock precinct. Stretch your legs with a stroll along the scenic boardwalk with ocean views to the Nobbies blowhole and Seal Rock, and just enjoy the spectacular surroundings. The iconic lookout is the perfect place to take some spectacular photos.  

 

The day's final stop (and perhaps highlight) is the world-famous Phillip Island Penguin Parade. Before the penguins come in from a full day at sea, you'll have the opportunity to purchase dinner so you can watch the parade with a full belly. 

 

Phillip Island is home to the largest Little Penguin colony in the world. They begin their journey back to land at sunset, waddling up the sand back to their burrows. Experience the magic of watching these incredible seabirds from viewing platforms and boardwalks. Once they're safely back home, it's time to return you to your Melbourne CBD hotels.
