    Pickup was on time. Tour guide Alex was great. Unfortunately we were bumped down to the non-premium option. It was fine because the tour operator requested to have our refund arranged. Anyway, first stop was Brighton Bay with the colorful houses. I would’ve wanted a longer stay because there were a lot of houses to take photos of. But I guess it was alright. Next stop was the zoo where people can pet and feed the kangaroos. Then the Nobbies with some gorgeous views. Last was the penguins. It was COLD, bring appropriate clothing/blankets. Absolutely NO PICTURE-TAKING at the penguins though. But it was still an awesome experience to see penguins in their natural habitat and not inside an aquarium.

What To Expect

After being picked up from Melbourne, your first stop on this Aussie adventure will be the city’s most colourful attraction – the iconic Brighton Beach bathing boxes where you'll visit the beach and take some time to admire these historic landmarks. Then you visit Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Park. Here you'll have the chance to hand-feed kangaroos, emus and other animals and learn about these species. One of the highlights of this tour is the variety of activities to enjoy. The best is served last, as the sun begins to set and the sky darkens, the cute little penguins begin heading home after a day out fishing at sea; waddling back to shore forms the famous penguin parade. You'll head back to Melbourne after your day of exciting moments, and with WiFi on board you'll easily be able to share the memories with friends!

    Well planned itinerary albeit slightly rushed (would love more time at the Nobbies). The penguins are definitely worth the wait though!

    Go west was great. However Klook did not book the guided ranger tour at the penguin parade despite the voucher was confirmed and issued. We arrived at the penguin parade and ended up with general admission instead of the guided ranger tour we paid for. 3 days have passed and klook still haven’t given and compensation or refund. I would definitely not advise to book tours through klook.

    Had a really good time with Mark from Go West! He was extremely cheerful and attentive even though our group don't talk too much. A complete package to get to see the beach, wildlife and scenic views. totally recommended!

    This tour is good if you want to explore on the all the places comes along till the journey to Philips Island. Bathing Boxes are beautiful arranged and painted, makes it picture perfect. On the way there are many cute animals you can spot. Penguins parade really worth watching They are the world’s smallest and maybe around a feet tall On the whole trip you get to hear history behind everything by the tour guide/driver He will make you feel comfortable and home when you are along the journey You pass by the zoo where you can feed the kangaroos

    I love our tour guide Mel. She is the best tour guide we had so far. The tour also included a lot of different stops which we felt makes the tour extremely enjoyable and worthwhile. However, there is nothing particularly special about the penguin parade. A definitely must try for tourists!

    A very well organised tour by GoWest. It was raining during our Penguin Parade, but certainly not the fault of anyone. You’re not supposed to take any photos of penguins, so just put it in your memory! We had PenguinsPlus, and it’s worth it.

    Our tour guide is Graham. He took care of us very well and we had a great time in this Philip Island tour. He shared lots of information to us, so that we can enjoy our trip more. Even we only got around 9-10hours in this tour, we feel every event is well organised and can enjoy everything in an one-day your.

    Although the visit to the beach houses and sanctuary was kind of tight, but it was totally awesome. I was so wow-ed by the gorgeous views and it was amazing. The penguins were so cute and got to see them up close. Shoutout to Sam for being super fun and energetic throughout the trip!

    It was an amazing experience to be able to see penguins close by. The tour is just right for us to experience and see different animals before going directly to philip Island. But we couldn't take photos of the penguin as our flash will be bad for their health. So, it will be best to just enjoy that special moment tgt with the penguin.
