Go on a tour to the amazing Phillip Island, one of Victoria’s most beautiful natural wildlife reserves. The most popular attraction on Phillip Island is the penguin parade which occurs every evening.
Here, visitors to the island will be able to view hundreds of tiny penguins as they emerge from the sea and waddle up to their nesting boxes in search of food and shelter. The Penguin Parade is a completely natural occurrence and the Phillip Island nature park has established viewing platforms and boardwalks so that visitors can watch this amazing spectacle without disturbing the penguins.
Next, head to Maru Wildlife Park which is an award winning family run attraction that includes an animal park which features koalas and other native Australian animals. Here, you will be given the opportunity to really interact with the animals which include koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, dingoes, emus, parrots, wombats and snakes. There are plenty of opportunities to feed, pat and take photographs of the animals as you make your away round the park.
If you are interested in marine life, then look no further than a dolphin and seal adventure at Queenscliffe. This cruise will take you down Port Phillip Heads Marine National park where you view dolphins and seals and even have the opportunity to get in the water if you wish! (Note that the dolphin swim season is between October-May each year).
