Private Phillip Island Penguin Parade and Wine Tasting Day Trip
Experience the wilderness and white sand beaches of Phillip Island on a private day trip from Melbourne, complete with wine tasting. Visit Bass Valley Estate Wines to sample their varietals and then sit down to a delicious 2-course meal and watch penguins make their nightly journey ashore from premium seats. Your tour also includes an optional stop at Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park (additional $40.00), where you can observe the koalas, feed the kangaroos, or hold a python snake.
Your private day trip to Phillip Island, off the coast of Victoria, begins between 12pm and 2pm, depending on the time of year.
Start your excursion with an optional trip to the Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park (additional $40.00), Melbourne's award winning wildlife park featuring 10 hectares of natural bushland. Feed kangaroos, observe koalas, and see native Aussie wildlife such as dingoes, wombats, wallabies, emus, and reptiles.
Next continue on to Bass Valley Estate for amazing vineyard views and an exclusive winemaker-led tasting, complete with a sampling of local cheeses. Sit down to a 2-course dinner with wine before or after the penguin parade, depending on the time of year, at Watermark Restaurant.
Then, it’s time to view the penguins on their nightly march ashore. Enjoy a premium vantage point from premier seats with a ranger, who will help you get the best views of the birds as they come home from a long day of fishing.
Your trip concludes with a private transfer back to your Melbourne or Phillip Island lodging.
