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.

"The Phillip Island tour was great and totally worth the time. You get to an animal reserve with Koalas and kangaroos. This was great, although it is very touristy. If you're looking to see them in the wild, this is probably not the best tour. There are several other stops including a place for lunch/tea (provided) and dinner. It depends on your guide, but we also got to see Swan Lake which was really cool to see all kinds of birds in a natural habitat. "
"Great service from beginning to end. We had a dashing tour guide named Sid, who was considerate, entertaining, and very accommodating. He adjusted the stops accordingly and we were never rushed or spent too long at a stop. My husband and I had a wonderful time and this day tour was one of the highlights of our first trip to Australia."
