Phillip Island is home to an astounding array of wildlife, including Australia’s largest fur seal colony, the Little Penguins and cuddly koalas. Only 90 minutes from Melbourne, the island features spectacular coastal scenery, charming heritage and an abundance of wildlife. Enjoy getting close to koalas and kangaroos before joining the Little Penguins at dusk as they emerge from the surf and waddle to their burrows. Each night at sunset the world’s smallest penguins come ashore after a day’s fishing at sea and it is truly a memorable natural wildlife experience. The elevated boardwalks and viewing stands allow you to enjoy all the action without disturbing them or their burrow homes. The Phillip Island Nature Park also offers four up-close ways to witness the Penguin spectacle (see Add Ons).

  • Depart Melbourne and travel directly to the Penguin Parade
  • Explore Phillip Island's Penguin Parade Centre to discover an extensive range of information available about Phillip Island, its history and wildlife
  • Here you can learn about the Little Penguin and its lifestyle
  • Browse through the souvenir shop for your own little piece of Penguin memorabilia
  • See the wonderful nightly phenomenon of the Little Penguins battling the strong surf as they return to the beach after a day of hunting fish at sea
  • Watch the Little Penguins as they make their way up the beach to their waiting families
