What to expect

Every evening at dusk the Little Penguins come home from the sea at Phillip Island.

Experience the nightly ritual of these little birds which will enthrall you as you observe from the beach and the elevated boardwalk. You will be able to see the Little Penguins and almost touch them as they waddle to their hideouts. You will be able to learn more about these creatures at the Visitors Centre as you walk through the "Penguin Experience".

In this tour you will also see one of the most iconic animals in Australia, the Koala, peering down from the gum trees where they live. At the Koala Conservation Centre you will see these furry creatures in their natural habitat from tree top boardwalks.

Depending on the season there will be also the opportunity to meet wallabies/kangaroos.
