What We Love:

For many visitors to Melbourne or Phillip Island, the penguin parade is a must see! When people think of Australian animals, the little penguin is usually not on the top of their list. However, Phillip Island is home to the world's smallest penguins. As the sun begins to set, these little penguins return to their home on shore after a day out fishing. It's truly magical to see so many creatures waddle their way back to the beach. Phillip Island in itself is worth exploring, before sunset you can spend time meeting the more famous koalas at the Koala Conservation Centre or take a walk at Nobbies cliff top - keep an eye out for any seals and migrating whales!

need some luck to meet with penguin.


Loved this tour a lot! It was very memorable too! I would bring my kid to do it again if she ever requests for it again :)


It's easy and convenient in making a booking online. It's so simple. The email communications were excellent when was told that the underground plus was fully booked. For the parade, it's a bit disappointed as the penguins were too far away and the environment was way too dark for viewing. I am not sure however if the plus or the underground viewing does worth the money though.


Having some minor delay upon checking in using the E voucher from my phone. But it all worked out OK. The Penguins arrived relatively late around 9 o'clock in the evening, but don't wait until the last minute to go to the viewing site. Because it's a first come first serve seating. Adorable creatures tiny and cute and there are lots and lots of them. Definitely worthwhile...


Easy exchange for tickets at entrance.
