Phillip Island Penguin Parade Tour


From $125 pp

A great family day out for the young and young at heart, the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island has been delighting visitors for over twenty years. 

The only tourism attraction in the world where you can see Little Penguins in their natural environment, Phillip Island’s Penguin Parade is a truly wild and wonderful experience. As the sun sets, the colony of penguins returns home, waddling up the beach and along pathways after their big day of swimming and fishing. Special viewing platforms allow you to get close enough to really catch the action, while keeping visitors far enough away that the penguins feel safe.

On this tour, you’ll enjoy exploring the wonderful Phillip Island, the peaceful and sleepy town of Cowes and peering out over the sea towards the mainland. Our experienced guides will share the history of the island and plenty of stories about the abundant wildlife.

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!
