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!

    Great to see the penguins, yet didn't have the wine and cheese tasting part, that's disappointing
  • Wee*** 14 Aug 2017
    The philip island tour was great. Paul was our guide and he was clear in his explanation while guiding. The penguins were so adorable. A trip that's not to be missed.
  • CHI*** 13 Aug 2017
    Perfect and excellent tour leader. You can enjoy the nature in Australia this tour with beautiful scenic view.
  • Clar* 12 Aug 2017
    Another amazing tour provided by GoWest. I would recommend to upgrade your tour to Penguin Plus, as you will definitely see a lot more penguins than the general admission. Easy pick up from your accommodation. Great tour except there were not a lot of places you could get your meal and with limited choices as well, and you will have to eat on the bus.
  • Yeuk*** 12 Aug 2017
    Our guide Alex is awesome. Keep the group engaged. Love his play list. We joined the guided ranger tour with special seating area. The penguins are cute. Wish we could spend more time afterwards to shop around. Overall we enjoyed it. Will recommend this to others visiting Melbourne. We are going with another go west tour today.
