PHILLIP ISLAND FULL DAY Private TOUR
Experience a trio of top Phillip Island attractions and save with this flexible 3 park pass. See furry koalas and wallabies up close in their native habitat at the Koala Conservation Centre, and watch sheep shearing and herding demonstrations at the historic Churchill Island Heritage Farm. For an enchanted evening experience, watch tiny fairy penguins emerge from the ocean and waddle across the beach to their burrows during the world famous Penguin Parade.
We contacted John to arrange a family trip to Phillip Island, 2 adults & 2 kids (5 & 7).
John listened to our requirements, added some suggestions. Picked up at the hotel door, right on time (inc. booster seat). John was extremely personable throughout the trip, engaged with adults and children alike. He was also very knowledgeable about the area, giving us pointers to maximise the experience. We all thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would recommend John & Melbourne Touring Co to anyone!
