Private Tour - Phillip Island & Penguin Parade Day Tour

ps://hikeandseek.rezdy.com/calendarWidget/310167?iframe=true">

EXPERIENCE AMAZING VIEWS OF THE BASS STRAIT & MEET PHILLIP ISLANDS LOCAL PENGUINS PLUS OTHER AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE ON YOUR PRIVATE DAY TOUR.

Sit back, sip on a hot cuppa, and relax as we head off on a 1hr 45min drive to Phillip Island. Our first stop is Cape Woolamai where it’s time to lace up our boots and begin the first hike of the day—an easy to moderate 6.8km track through unique landscapes. 

We traverse over rugged rock formations, known as the Pinnacles, and wind our way around the Nature Park of Phillip Island. Experience stunning views over the Bass Strait and the pounding surf below. Keep your eyes peeled for wallabies, echidnas, shearwater birds, and whales in the winter months.

After this hike, we head into Cowes for a bite to eat before making our way to the Phillip Island Koala Reserve. Stroll through this eucalyptus woodland and get up close to koalas in their natural habitat. The Koala Reserve’s unique treetop boardwalks offer up-close viewing and an unforgettable experience.

Our next stop is The Nobbies, where we enjoy a leisurely stroll along the boardwalk to discover breathtaking coastline views and the impressive thundering blowhole. This area is home to Australia’s largest seal colony, little penguins, and silver gulls.

To top off the day, we take a waddle on the wild side to see hundreds (sometimes thousands) of penguins emerge from the surf at sunset at the world-famous Penguin Parade. This experience is a wildlife lover’s dream! Have your camera ready. 

All of our private tours offer you the freedom to adjust and create your own unique itinerary. Or if you prefer to sit back and leave it to us, we’re more than happy to lead the way with plenty of room for flexibility on the day.
