See the famous Penguin Parade on Phillip Island, with a fantastic half-day express tour from Melbourne. Depart late in the day for more time to explore Melbourne city with no early wake-ups. Head straight to Phillip Island on the southern coast of Victoria, passing the iconic town of San Remo and Australia’s Motorcycle Grand Prix track. Listen as your guide shares information about Phillip Island, the Little Penguins, and history of the spectacle known as the Penguin Parade. When you arrive at the Parade, explore the award-winning information center and stroll along the beautiful boardwalks and platforms amongst the dunes down the beach front. Wait for the first group of penguins to breach the water's edge and make the dangerous journey across the sands of Summerlands Beach. Watch as they socialize and waddle underneath next to the boardwalk platforms. Have an opportunity to grab some food before heading down to the shores to see the Penguin Parade. Find a comfortable place along the foreshore and wait in anticipation as the world’s smallest penguins start to waddle their way to shore. After witnessing the penguins parade storm the beach, head over to the boardwalks to gain a closer view before boarding the bus and heading back to Melbourne.
