PUFFING BILLY AND PHILLIP ISLAND PENGUIN PARADE
Steam your way through a lovely day with our Puffing Billy and Penguin Parade tour, a delightful combination of memorable attractions that you’ll love to visit.
Jump aboard the historic Puffing Billy steam train to gently chug through lush forests, spotting birds and other wildlife, and waving to passers-by along the way. This 100 year old train with open air carriages is operated by over 900 dedicated volunteers and your journey crosses creeks and roads, weaving between ancient trees and enormous ferns.
Then, head to the beautiful Phillip Island where you can stretch your legs with a walk along the coast, watch the fur seals and see wallabies bouncing around in their natural environment. As the sun starts to set, we travel to the world famous Penguin Parade to sit quietly and watch the little fairy penguins come home from a day out at sea fishing and swimming.
On this tour, you’ll enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Dandenong Ranges, the jagged coastline of Phillip Island and abundant wildlife. Our experienced tour guides will share their knowledge of the area’s history and passion for wildlife conservation.
It's been brilliant, had loads of fun, can’t believe we saw so much. Everything was really good.
Great gang with loads of Craic! Thanks
