Phillip Island Private Tour

Overview

Our Phillip Island Private Tour is a wildlife trip of a lifetime, visit a historic farm, coastal trails, a wildlife park and the Penguin Parade at sunset.

 

Visit Victoria’s first farm, Churchill Island. Step back in time and see how people lived in the 1800s. Farming demonstrations such as sheep shearing are shown throughout the day here. Get up close and interact with Australian wildlife at a sanctuary. See kangaroos, koalas, emu, wombats and much more! Take a scenic walk along the rugged volcanic coastline at Seal Rocks.

Once the sun goes down, around 1000 “little penguins” surf ashore on Phillip Island’s national park. You’ll have the outstanding opportunity to watch as the little penguins emerge from the sea and waddle their way across the beach back to their burrows with fresh produce to feed their chicks. We include upgraded seating that will get you closer to these charming little creatures. Our passionate, expert guides will ensure that you experience a wonderful day.

Your Phillip Island Private Tour can be customised to suit your individual interests and time requirements.

Highlights

Penguin Parade

Penguin Parade

Every night as the sun goes down, thousands of little penguins arrive ashore to come home after a big day of fishing at sea. Overlooking the stunning beach, you will see them grouping together for their waddle across the beach. Once a few groups have arrived ashore, you can walk through the surrounding boardwalks and watch the penguins in their natural habitat.

Churchill island

Churchill island

Churchill Island is Victoria’s first farm. It's a place surrounded by water, filled with beautiful gardens of herbs, vegetables, flowers, and fruits. It’s also home to many farm animals such as highland cattle, horses, chickens, and sheep. The buildings have been fully restored to its original beauty and is open to the public. You can wander around the old house, work sheds, barns, paddocks, and stables that each hold their own purpose in the farming lifestyle. This is a great place for you to come back to your element and see how much hard work running a farm would have been without the modern technology we have today.
