1. From Melbourne: Phillip Island Eco Wildlife Tour

This tour departs from Melbourne and includes the very best of the region’s wildlife. Journey to the city’s most colourful attraction, the iconic Brighton Beach bathing boxes, for an opportunity to visit the beach and take some time to admire these historic landmarks. Take a guided tour of Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, and get an opportunity to interact with and learn about an array of Australian animals. Hand feed the kangaroos, emus, and wallabies and learn about the numerous breeding programs undertaken here to preserve many endangered native species including Tasmanian Devils, Spotted Quolls, and Southern Hairy-nosed Wombats. Afterward, enjoy a visit to Point Grant and The Nobbies, taking in the views of Westernport Bay, Bass Strait, and Seal Rocks, home to Australia’s largest fur seal population. Finally, it's time for the main event. As the sun goes down each evening, the world’s smallest penguins come ashore after fishing out at sea all day. Your guide will help you get the best seats possible so you'll have a great view of the Penguin Parade.

My group was with Aaron and he was so enthusiastic and his energy absolutely contagious. I think this is the best tour for the Philip island, as it will stop at the moonlit sanctuary, where you can see Aussie animals and also do animals encounters. The nobbies and the woolamai surf beach are also breathtaking. The stops timing seemed perfect to me, also for lunch/dinner. Absolutely recommended. Oh and bring some warm clothes for the penguin parade as it’ll be cold!

The trip went for half a day from 11 am till 11 pm. Eva, our guide was superb. The animals are so nice. However, the little penguin parade was quite underwhelming. There weren't that many and they were so small. It's too dark to see clearly, especially on a rainy day. For some people, it might be more straightforward to just go to the zoo for the animals. If you enjoy the outside, wanna feel the nature on the island, then hop on the tour.

Awesome Memorable to see thousands of penguins coming into the island waddling their way home next to the broadwalks Eva our guide was amazing. Pointing to us animals on the road telling us information about them

Rachel was a great guide. The 9h day trip was well organized and offered everything from petting kangaroos at moonlit sanctuary to seeing the little penguins at Philipp Island.

The tour was amasing! Phillip island, Moonit sanctuary were nice place. The staff was friendly!
