Make your Express Phillip Island tour EPIC!
Are you planning a relaxed day or evening in Melbourne but still want to visit Phillip Island to see the charming penguins? Well, Bunyip Tours has just the tour for you!
No need to worry about early morning hotel pickups. We’ll pick you up at a reasonable time and head straight to Phillip Island.
Once on the island, you’ll get to explore Seal Rocks and the Nobbies Centre. Take a leisurely walk along the boardwalk and enjoy the stunning views toward the Mornington Peninsula from the western edge of Phillip Island. Here, you might catch a sneak peek of the main attraction, the adorable Little Penguins. They like to hide under the boardwalks and burrows, but they’ll start peeking out as they wait for sunset when their partners return from the ocean.
Just before the sun sets, we’ll head over to the Penguin Parade. We’ll find our spots on the beach and get ready to watch the hundreds of little penguins as they make their way across the sand and return to their burrows in the sand dunes. You’ll witness heartwarming scenes as they reunite with their partners, exchange a little kiss, dance a bit, and then waddle up into their burrows. It’s an unforgettable afternoon for sure!
