About This Deal
This combo experience from Melbourne allows you to save money by booking two bestselling tours at one price. The Great Ocean Road and Penguin Parade tours can be done on consecutive days or not—it's up to you.
Penguin Parade tour:
Depart Melbourne in the afternoon by coach, heading to Phillip Island. Visit Warrook Homestead for afternoon tea and get up close to kangaroos.
Continue to the Koala Conservation Centre on Phillip Island, and walk along an elevated boardwalk where koalas are looked after in their natural habitat, sleeping in and munching on eucalyptus trees. After about 20 minutes here, it’s time to head to the Penguin Parade, where every evening at sunset, the island’s wild fairy penguins, aka little penguins, make their way up from the sea to their burrows on Summerland Beach. Watch as they waddle across the sand, a sight best seen from the Penguins Plus Premium Viewing Area. The time you spend here varies depending on the season and when the penguins emerge from the water.
Your tour ends with return to Melbourne.
Great Ocean Road tour:
After meeting your driver-guide in the morning, depart Melbourne on the roughly 2-hour drive to your first stop, the Twelve Apostles. Stop at the boardwalk lookout for another vast perspective of the rocks. (Weather permitting, you also have the opportunity to take a helicopter ride over the coastline, if you wish, at your own expense.)
After about 45 minutes, continue your day trip for more views of the Great Ocean Road’s golden sandy beaches and stark cliffs at Loch Ard Gorge, the site of the
Loch Ard shipwreck. During this 45-minute stop, you also have time to visit Island Arch and Razorback, formed by the rough seas.
A quick morning tea stop (own expense) at Anglesea and then an extended stop at the seaside resort town of Apollo Bay, where you can purchase lunch—perhaps some fish and chips—and enjoy it on the beach (own expense).
Before the journey back to the city, make a 20-minute stop for afternoon tea in the seaside town of Port Campbell (own expense). Your day trip ends with drop-off in Melbourne.
