About This Deal

Heading out to Penguin Parade, we begin our day at an Animal Wildlife Park to meet some furry Australian favourites. Hand feed the kangaroos, see koalas and get up-close and personal with other native Australian wildlife. Travel to Phillip Island Nature Parks, known for its natural beauty, sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and unique wildlife experiences home to a colony of around 32,000 little penguins. Phillip Island Tour is one of the popular and must watch tourist attractions in Victoria.

Travel to the beautiful Phillip Island famous for its natural beauty, stunning beaches and one of a kind wildlife experiences. Stop at Woolomai Beach and enjoy a tranquil walk along the coast followed by a visit to the world-first interactive Antarctic experience located at the Nobbies Centre on Phillip Island.  This FREE additional activity takes our passengers on a virtual journey to the Southern Ocean and Antarctica, where they can engage in a multimedia experience unlike none other.   As committed custodians, Autopia Tours are proud supporters of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Phillip Island Nature Parks.  Through wildlife awareness, we recognize our social responsibility to educate, implement and empower environmental change for future generations.

The Penguins Plus Viewing Platform is a joint venture between Phillip Island Nature Parks and RACV. Inspired by the natural elements of the surrounding landscape, the wooden platform mirrors the coves of Phillip Island’s spectacular southern coastline and offers visitors unprecedented, up-close viewing of the little penguins as they waddle along the most popular pathway at the Penguin Parade.  A far superior penguin experience than general admission which is what other tours include.

Finish up at the visitor's center where a truly amazing experience awaits: the world famous penguin parade where thousands of tiny penguins emerge from the sea and waddle ashore. Head back to Melbourne after a day packed with activities, stop for dinner (own expense) on the way and sit back and relax until arriving in Melbourne late evening.
