Your special day out will commence at your hotel where you will be picked up by your own personal expert guide. You will travel south-east from Melbourne to arrive at Moonlit Sanctuary Conservation Park where you will meet endangered species, kangaroos, wallabies and koalas plus an array of colourful birds and reptiles.
Our journey then leads onto Phillip Island, the home of the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix and our famous Little Penguins.
Upon arrival on the island, depending on the time of year and your particular interests, we will visit Woolamai beach to see surfers riding the waves.
From here, we go to the western corner of the island to enjoy magnificent views of Bass Strait and the Nobbies, which is home to the largest colony of fur seals in Australia.
During the daylight savings months, you will travel to the town of Cowes to enjoy a great two-course dinner before the penguin parade. In the winter months, you will have dinner in Cowes after the penguin parade.
Finally, a trip to Phillip Island is not complete without its black-tie gala event: the Penguin Parade. You will arrive at the Visitor Centre to shop, have a coffee and then meander along the boardwalk to the viewing platform where you will see the little penguins come ashore, decked out in their tuxedos as they hurry off to find their burrows. On this private tour, you will be treated to viewing the penguins at the special Penguins Plus viewing platform close to the little penguins’ favourite spot to exit the water.
At the end of the day, you can unwind on the journey home as your guide will take you directly back to your hotel.
