#Mandarin Guided Tour. Visit Phillip Island on this one-day tour starting from Melbourne city. Pass by San Remo, and then head to Cowes town for some free time before going to Phillip Island to watch the penguins return to their nests. Start from your meeting point in Melbourne City. Meet your driver and hop into the air-conditioned coach to begin your day trip. Relax on the coach and marvel at the views from the windows. On the way, the coach will make a stop for you to admire the views of San Remo. Capture photos of the only bridge connecting Phillip Island to Victoria and then cross over it. Continue to Cowes, the main town on Phillip Island. Soak up the seaside vibe and enjoy some free time for dinner or exploring the town. Finally, make your way to the Penguin Parade with your guide. Penguin Parade is the largest wild penguin protection base in the world, with more than 30,000 penguins living on Phillip Island. After sunset, watch as the world's smallest fairy penguins fight in the waves, their mouths are full of food to be brought back to the nest. See the penguins swim back to the shore and waddle in line back to their nests. Under the guidance of management staff, you and passengers from all over the world will sit in turn on the open-air observation deck built along the coast, waiting for the penguins to return to their nests. After this incredible experience, returned to the coach to begin the journey back to Melbourne.
