Tours were good, but too much seat time back to back. I'd recommend doing them separately

A very well organized and managed tour with friendly tour guides and amazing sights of the great ocean road. A must see activity made more enjoyable with Grayline. However should give enough time to do Helicopter ride at the 12 apostles stop.

Penguin Parade
So completely Australian - unique in the world.

Every evening at dusk the Little Penguins come home from the sea at Phillip Island. From the waves - across the beach - to the sand dunes - the Little Penguins can almost be touched as they waddle to their burrows.

Sunset at Summerland Beach has drawn millions of visitors to Phillip Island. It is the nightly ritual of these little flightless birds which will enthrall you as you observe from the beach and the elevated boardwalk.

Koalas, also totally Australian, peer down from the gum trees where they live. They're fat and furry, with wet noses and a gentle smile of content living on Phillip Island.

  • Panoramic views of Western Port and French Island
  • San Remo - maritime fishing village
  • Visit Churchill Island for afternoon tea (own expense)
  • Look for birdlife at the island wetlands (seasonal)
