Penguin Parade and Phillip Island Full Day Trip from Melbourne

The tour driver was full of information. The places we visited were very entertaining. Our most memorable experience was the penguin parade ending the tour. We truly enjoyed the day and would recommend to anyone to go on this tour. ...Claudia H., Australia – See more reviews
