Went on 23 Nov 2014. Nice experience to see those little penguins swimming and walking up the shore and seeking shelter for the night. General admission tickets are good enough to get up and close up.

We based our entire trip down to Phillip Island around our visit to the penguin parades. We were keen for a slightly different experience as we aren't overly fond of large crowds\tourists so we booked the Ultimate Adventure Tour. We were met by our tour guide Rachael with a warm welcome, met the rest of our group and were taken... More

One of the highlights of our trip. We paid extra for the smaller viewing area and it was well worth it. Seeing hundred of penguins emerge from the ocean and head to their nests is something that truly has to be witnessed to understand just how incredible it is! We watched the penguins come out of the ocean for about... More

I went to see penguin parade 20 years ago, and went for a second time earlier this year with my partner. Both of us really enjoyed the experience, aren't they the most adorable birds! If you are not with a tour I would suggest you arrive early so you can get a good seat on the lookouts. We were able... More

Please try to see this amazing act of Mother Nature taking care of her young... Hundreds of fairy penguins coming out of the ocean to fed their babies and able to find the right ones! Have Dan@localing.com.au take you to see this adventure. We had a great picnic looking over the ocean on the way and great seats to watch... More

Wow! The Penguin Parade was a great experience! The Little Penguin is the world's smallest penguin. They each have their own personal burrow to which they return each night. Some of these burrows are a mile of more from the beach; a very long trek on such short legs! The rascals head out to sea before sun-up to avoid flying... More

The penguins were cute. We got pretty close to them as they started to make their way to their homes. Its almost better not to sit on the stairs, and to wait for them to come up more so you get a good view! Do not go there in winter, it was so so so so cold. The price was... More
