Picked up from hotel. Wonderful information from driver about penguins, koalas, and kangaroos. Fabulous film played on return to hotel. The driver, James, was very well informed and made the trip fun and interesting.

An absolutely fascinating example of Nature's wonders. The bus driver was informative and helpful. The rangers at the beach were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. They contributed a great deal to the experience. Would recommend this tour to anyone.

ITINERARY

Experience something so completely Australian, something truly unique in the world.

Every evening at dusk, the Little Penguins come home from the sea at Phillip Island. Across the beach, from the waves 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 exclusive, elevated boardwalk of Penguins Plus premium viewing area.

Koalas, also totally Australian, peer down from the gum trees where they live. Fat and furry, with wet noses and a gentle smile, these lovable animals are very content living on Phillip Island.
