It was worth the drive through peak hour traffic to see the little penguins emerge from the ocean and waddle up the beach to their burrows. To see how people can observe the penguins without disturbing their routine was wonderful. A great way to spend an evening, and we voted this the highlight of our holiday in Melbourne.
Two of us did this tour on recommendation of my daughter whom did it in 2008. WOW, the driver was great, scenery on route enjoyable and the actual Penguin Parade was unmissable and highly recommended. We did upgrade to the "Viewing Platform combined with fish and chip supper" and if possible I would recommend that you did this too as the view is truly unimaginable from this platform.
Viewing the little penguins come out of the sea to the land was awe inspiring. I really enjoyed this tour.
Great tour with an informative and friendly tour guides s travelled in style,
Upgrading to platform plus was worth it as 80 percent of penguins go past this platform rather than the general viewing area. This is because there are rocks for the Penguins to hide by. Penguins didn't disappoint. Fish and chip dinner was also very good. It is a late night but worth your time.
It was just an express tour so I didn't expect to see anything but the penguins but our driver made this trip more enjoyable than expected. He told us some stories on the way there about penguins and other stuff and was quite fun listening to. The penguins were adorable and I would choose this tour operater (AAT Kings) again.
Had a great time! It's best to purchase the delux sky box package--that way you will be right next to the path the little penguins take on their way back to their nests and will have a very good viewing.
We loved this tour. It was a 2 hour bus ride from Melbourne but the scenery on Phillip Island is wonderful and the penguin parade was wonderful. The whole family enjoyed it but especially the kids. I would recommend it strongly.
Great tour! Our guide David was very knowledgeable and friendly, lovely guy. Hotel pickup was so convenient, the bus was modern clean and comfortable. We went with the Penguin Plus tickets and they were well worth it. It does get pretty chilly and I can recommend bringing or purchasing a poncho.
Lovely little penguins!! They were all so cute! Took the premium package where you get to sit closer to the penguins. Fish and Chips included in my package was very tasty but too much for my lil stomach :)
