Our Phillip Island Penguins Direct Tour allows you to enjoy the city while still catching for the spectacular show over there on the famous Australian island.

Penguin Parade Direct Tour visits Nobbies Rocks
We head straight to the award-winning Nobbies Information Centre to learn the island’s wildlife, the Australian fur seals, and the little penguins.
Strolling down the boardwalks of the Nobbies, you get to see the Blowhole, spot the fur seals on Seal Rocks, find some wallabies and take photos with the little penguins in their nests.
Penguin Parade Direct Tour Penguin Experience
At the Penguin Parade, we still have plenty of time checking out the café and gift shops. We drop by the Visitor Information Centre to know more about the little penguins.
The little penguins (eudyptula minor) are the smallest penguins in the world measuring around 43 cm in height and about 1 kg in weight. They are monogamous and live in large colonies.
You can find these small blue penguins waddling on the coastlines of the southern hemisphere – in mainland Australia’s southern shores, Tasmania, New Zealand, the Chatham Islands, South Africa, and Chile.
The fairy penguins, as they are formally called in Australia due to their diminutive size, had established a territory on Phillip Island. In fact, the island is one of their largest colonies in Victoria.
Feeding on a seafood diet, the little penguins fish the waters of the Bass Strait during the day and return to their nests at dusk. They’re excellent swimmers to compensate for being unable to fly.
After the hard day’s fishing, they appear magically on the shore with the beautiful Phillip Island sunset at the backdrop. Watch them travel in small groups, parading back to their burrows in the sand dunes in a well-rehearsed manner.
Enjoy the spectacular show on Phillip Island in this penguin parade direct tour. It’s a fun way to conclude your day. Inclusions of the tour are the following: all park entry fees, wildlife spotting in their natural habitat, a comfortable ride, and a professional and entertaining tour guide.
