About the 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.
