Description

Enjoy the very best of the region's wildlife and gourmet delights on this day trip to Phillip Island. Leaving Melbourne, we travel first to the Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park where you will get the opportunity to meet and hand-feed many species of native Australian animals on a guided wildlife walk. Learn about iconic species such as kangaroos, koalas, emus, wallabies and Tasmanian devils, as well as some of the lesser known favorites like quolls, owls and bandicoots.

We stop next for gourmet afternoon tea at the delightful Phillip Island Winery. Sample a range of locally produced wines with a lovely selection of Gippsland's finest cheeses and other gourmet produce. The wine and cheese tasting is accompanied by an informative presentation about each of the foodstuffs sampled, ensuring an experience that is educational as well as truly mouth-watering.

We continue on to Point Grant and The Nobbies to enjoy views over Westernport Bay and Bass Strait, including Seal Rocks, home to Australia's largest population of fur seals, before ending the day with the trip's main highlight - the Penguin Parade at Summerland Beach.

Witness the phenomenon where, just after dark every night, the world's smallest penguins waddle ashore after a day of fishing out at sea. Be enchanted as the stars of the show emerge from the surf and parade right before your eyes on their journey back to their homes. Your guide will ensure you are able to get the very best vantage point to enjoy the Penguin Parade and will help to keep you toasty warm with a complimentary hot cuppa.

Join an intimate small group (maximum 10 persons) Guided Ranger Tour. Enjoy superb viewing of the Penguin Parade with priority seating on beach in front of main viewing area or, if conditions allow, even right on the sand. Hear informative commentary on the penguin colony from your ranger guide via your personal headset and try to spot penguins before they get to the beach with supplied binoculars.

After the parade, you will have plenty of free time to explore the Penguin Parade Visitor Centre before the journey back to Melbourne.

With drop-off right back to your inner city accommodation, you'll remember this day as a true highlight of your Australian holiday.
