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!

    We chose the underground one. Though it is the most expensive, you have no need to expose under the cold and windy weather for long, especially for the kids. The experience of watching the wild penguin is too cute and it is a must-do items for those visiting Melbourne.

    The penguin is a must activity. Underground pass give you the best view, also the longest time
  • Pan*** 29 Jun 2017
    It was a lovely experience. The penguins were all very small and they were all cute.
  • Sen*** 24 Jun 2017
    Don't ever book with them! I booked the Penguin Plus for 10 adults and 2 kids in advance. They confirmed my booking. When we got there, Penguin Parade said they did not receive our booking from Klook and penguin plus is already full. We had to go for the General viewing. Totally not what we wanted, the whole family was so disappointed. Now trying to get refund from them, also very difficult. So sickening.

    We just exchange the klook booking voucher with actual tickets. There are two entrances to the parade. Take the entrance nearest the souvenir shop as it is a shorter route and you can faster get to the best seats. We were super close to the penguins. Go for the penguin plus tickets!
