What you’ll experience

We’ll depart Melbourne in the early afternoon & travel directly to Phillip Island, famous for its wildlife and spectacular natural scenery. Visit The Nobbies and take a stroll along the boardwalks while enjoying spectacular views of Phillip Island’s rugged southern coastline.

Then settle in at Summerland Beach, home to Victoria’s largest colony of little penguins for the nightly Penguin Parade. From your beachside seats, and from purpose-built boardwalks, you will be amazed as hundreds of little penguins make their way across the beach and return to their nests in the sand dunes.

You should bring

  • Appropriate clothing for all weather conditions
  • Camera/phone (please note that photography is not permitted after sunset at the penguin parade)
