I did however notice that a lot of the areas are run down and looking a bit sad hopefully a renovation is on the cards soon. I did feel sorry for some of the birds tho like the seaeagles one looked like it had a sore... More

Driving through the main Philip Island road, this park would be on the left just before the major attractions of the island start. We stumbled here by accident having thought of Maru (Bass Highway) earlier, but which could close for the day before we arrived. This facility has a number of Australian marsupials, birds, dingos and a few Koalas. The... More

If you have an overnight stay in Melbourne, you should consider a visit to Phillip Island Wildlife Park for their daily sunset penguin parade at Summerland Beach. It is roughly 2- 2 1/2 hour ride from Melbourne. The easiest is probably join up with a scheduled tour bus from Melbourne. There are many options to choose from as some go... More

We were there with our two young kids on New Years day. Apart dom it being tired and lifeless there was a large dead kangaroo amongst the area where families and young kids get to feed animals. The eyes were gauged out and it looked like it had been there for a couple of days at least. My kids are... More

Jake and I spent a morning at the wildlife park while visiting Phillip Island and we had a great time. We had already visited the penguin parade and the koala centre so we didn't except much from the park but it was excellent. The entrance fee is $17.00 and you get a bag of food for the animals included in... More

We spent an hour or more here on the recommendation of a friend. Definitely not appealing from the outside but we actually had a great time. We brought our niece and nephew from the uk and they were able to see many Australian animals up close, including koalas, Tasmanian devils, wombats, echidnas, kangaroos, wallabies, dingos, emu and heaps more. They... More

My family visited this park first thing in the morning when it opened. We were immediately greeted by a few wallaby that came hopping over for food, which was given to us upon entry. My 3 year old daughter was thrilled! Because we arrived first thing the animals were all quite active and alert. This was a great opportunity to... More

Gives a very good idea of wild flora and fauna of this part of Victoria. Not too far from Melbourne and one-day trip is enough. I recommend to visit.
