Well, now is your chance to get up close and personal with some of Australia’s best.
Do so at the Phillip Island Wildlife Park, where you will have the chance to pet a Kangaroo, say Hi to a Koala, Feed the Wallabies, and even get harassed by an Emu (in a nice way of course)

Stop At: The Nobbies Centre, 1320 Ventnor Rd, Summerlands, Phillip Island, Victoria 3922 Australia
This is already one of Phillip Island’s main attractions, simply for the sheer beauty it possess – however, we visit this stunning spot right on Golden Hour, allowing us a perfect sight over the glistening waters and rocky cliffs.
Enjoy this moment with a Glass of Sparking Wine and Canapes, as you enjoy the views and take a walk along the boardwalk, taking in spectacular sights, and glimpses of native wildlife.
We depart from here along the back roads, providing us unparalleled views over Westernport Bay and Bass Strait, with even more wildlife to spot.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Phillip Island Nature Parks – Penguin Parade, 1019 Ventnor Rd Summerlannds Estate, Summerlands, Phillip Island, Victoria 3922 Australia
A “must do” whilst in Melbourne/Victoria, the Penguin Parade has long been the star attraction of Phillip Island.
We arrive here early enough so as you can take some time in this world-class visitor centre, and grab a bite to eat from the cafe should you wish.
You will then make your way out to the Penguin Viewing Platform, awaiting the arrival of the stars of the shows – the Little Penguins.
As the sun begins to set, your ranger-guide will provide you information on these cute little creatures, and then you will see literally thousands of them make their way onto the beach and up the hill side.
Walk along the boardwalk as you get within inches of these native Australian Penguins, admiring their uniqueness and cuteness alike.
Once we have had our cuteness overload, we board back on the bus – making our way back to Melbourne…with plenty of good memories to accompany us for the journey back
