Departing Melbourne we travel first to the multi-award-winning Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, where you’ll enjoy a guided tour of the extensive exhibits, learning about a wide array of Australian fauna. Hand-feed kangaroos & wallabies and perhaps cuddle a koala (additional fee applies for “Koala Encounter”).
Arriving on Phillip Island, we’ll visit the spectacular Cape Woolamai Surf Beach located on the southern coast of the island. Here, the beach is exposed to the powerful ocean swell and it’s not uncommon to see dolphins or seals frolicking just off shore.
We then travel to the south-west tip of Phillip Island to view the Nobbies and Australia’s largest Fur Seal colony at Seal Rocks.
Finally, we make our way to Summerland Beach for the highlight of the show. Watch hundreds of Little Penguins emerging from the ocean and waddling across the beach to their homes among the dunes. Explore the spectacular new Visitor Centre to learn more about our feathered friends before commencing the journey back to Melbourne.
