You’ll depart Melbourne by coach driving along the Yarra River.  Your guide will tell you about the sights you’re seeing.  Cross the bridge to Phillip Island and head to the Visitor Center to see exhibits about the native wildlife, including koalas, fur seals, birds and fairy penguins.  Learn about the conservation efforts in place to protect the wildlife.

When the sun starts to set, take your place on the beach and watch as hundreds of penguins come out of the water and feed their young with their catch.  Then watch them waddle to their burrows in the sand.

When booking, you’ll have the option to select the Penguin Plus Viewing Platform Upgrade.  This will give you a closer observation point and you’ll be accompanied by a wildlife ranger who gives an interesting narration.

Book now through Viator and you can save 50% off the price of this tour.  The offer will end on 9/26/17 and applies to all departures through to March 31, 2018.
