Phillip Island Penguin Parade Tour from Melbourne Including Koala Conservation Centre
Join this once in a lifetime experience and see the phenomenal Penguin Parade at Phillip Island during dusk at the General Viewing Area. This sightseeing coach tour also visits the Koala Conservation Centre and the heritage Churchill Island Farm along the way. With free wi-fi on board the coach you can download the interactive Penguin Parade app and explore the Penguin experience at the Penguin Parade Visitor Centre where you can learn all about the Little Penguin.
After meeting your guide, travel towards the historical Churchill Island Farm. Here, take in the picturesque views and enjoy a delicious afternoon tea (own expense) which consists of Devonshire Tea with scones, jam and cream (approximately 1-hour stop).
Arrive at the Koala Conservation Centre and walk along an elevated boardwalk where Koala's are looked after in natural habitats. Watch them as they sleep up in the Eucalyptus trees or peer down at you with a content smile (approximately 20-minute stop).
Next up is in the famous penguin parade. Every evening at sunset, the Little Penguins make their way home from the sea to their burrows on Summerland Beach. Watch as they waddle across the beach right in front of you, an amazing experience best seen from the General Viewing Area. Also enjoy a complimentary drink when you get to the Penguin Parade (time spent at the Penguin Parade does vary depending on when the penguins come out and seasonality).
A dinner stop will be made at The Nobbies in summer or there will be time to get dinner at the Penguin Parade Cafe during winter.
