What To Expect

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!

    nice and easy to access!
  • Wei Long 12 Aug 2018
    Smooth redemption process, had great experience at both Parks !
  • Zai yu Elisia 11 Aug 2018
    This is my second time visiting the Penguin Parade, the first time was when I was a child. I wanted my daughter to enjoy what I had experienced as a child. The place is a lot more touristy and crowded now. The day I chose to visit was unfortunately a rainy and windy day, thus the experience wasn't as great. Would have been better if I wasn't bounded by the date I chose. The Koala Conservation was a pretty good experience. It was in a more natural setting and there were quite a few koalas around.
  • FEI THIN 10 Aug 2018
    good and very easy to redeem. staff are friendly to assist .
  • Calvin 10 Aug 2018
    Voucher redemption was easy and straightforward. The attractions were interesting and really well-organised.
  • Loh 8 Aug 2018
    The amazing and rare experience to see cute little penguins walk up the coast is worth the price!
  • Michelle Nyet Tse 30 Jul 2018
    It is multiple locations, do go early morning if you are planning for the combo tickets. The penguin parade (no picture taking) is a extraordinary experience. The rest is quite okay as well, but if you do not have time, it could be missed as driving from Melbourne would take at least 2 hours.
  • Wen Kai Nicholas 29 Jul 2018
    Was initially a little disappointed with the seats from the general viewing area as it was quite a distance away from the shoreline. The tiny stature of these penguins & the lack of light after sunset made viewing worse. But upon leaving the viewing area and walking back to the main building, you'd be able to get a close-up view of these penguins as the pathway connecting these 2 spots cuts across an expansive area where these little penguin built their burrows. All-in-all, was a good experience for not a lot of money and would recommend it to anyone!
  • Farah Alia 27 Jul 2018
    Very good experience. Loved all the parks. Activities at Churchill Heritage Farm starts from 2.10pm onwards so it is recommended to explore other parks first if you are there early.
  • Isabelle 24 Jul 2018
    Very exciting experience watching wild penguins march back to their burrows! We went in winter, penguins arrived at about 6pm. It was very very cold so be sure to bring a heavy jacket!
