DESCRIPTION

After pickup from your Melbourne hotel, by-pass Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs before driving through beef and dairy cattle farms, horse breeding studs and swampland. Afternoon tea will be enjoyed at Churchill Island.

Recognised as a world leader for environmental conservation, Phillip Island’s sandy and rocky shorelines team with wildlife including over 200 species of birds. Time permitting you can view the local fisherman cleaning their catch of the day whilst battling amongst the fight of gulls and pelicans. It’s now time to visit the Koala Conservation Centre. This is one of the few areas in Victoria where you can see a protected koala colony. Walk amongst the treetops in nature reserve bush land and see wild koalas within touching distance. You may spot a wild wallaby or two as well. Enjoy dinner in the township of Cowes before proceeding with the rest of your evening.

Time permitting you will pass by Swan Lake, the island’s largest fresh water lake, and head to the ‘Nobbies’. From this magnificent headland, the views stretch over Mornington Peninsula and Bass Strait. One and half kilometers offshore are Seal Rocks, home to Australia’s largest Australian Fur Seal colony. 

Finally you’ll arrive at the Penguin Parade, each evening at dusk Little Penguins arrive in groups on the beach after a day of fishing. See them waddle their way into the dunes where their burrow nests are situated.  You will have access to the less populated boardwalks enabling you to gain close contact with the penguins without any hustle and bustle. Seeing and hearing about the penguin behavior, and their daily routines is an amazing learning experience.
