This 8-hour tour to Phillip Island Penguin Parade starts with a pickup from Rendezvous Hotel in Melbourne. Your pickup time depends on your tour time. This tour comes with a general viewing ticket for the Penguin Parade, but it can be upgraded to an exclusive viewing ticket for an additional cost.
Once you’ve been picked up in Melbourne, sit back and relax on the hour-and-a-half drive over to Phillip Island Nature Park. On the drive, take in views of the scenic island coastline. Stop at Nobbies Rocks penguin habitat, and keep an eye out for penguins. This is a smaller habitat, and remember more penguins are to come.
Continue on to the Phillip Island Penguin parade. This area is home to around 32,000 penguins. Check out the Phillip Island Visitor center to learn more about these black-and-white animals. Then get ready for the main event — your viewing at the Penguin Parade.
After your viewing, hop back in your original vehicle for the ride to Melbourne.
