Phillip Island, on Victoria’s South Coast, is home to a colony of around 32,000 Little Penguins. Each night, hundreds (sometimes thousands!) of penguins emerge from the surf and waddle across the beach at the world famous Penguin Parade. This full day tour includes nature walks along Phillip Island’s stunning beaches and boardwalks, meeting some of the local furry residents and of course the Penguin Parade.
