A special tour to the Penguins environmemt.We upgraded to the smaller viewing platform and enjoyed close observation Peter shared his knowledge of the area .We left feeling priviledged to have been part of the daily Penguin routine.
Absolutely brilliant ! The highlight of our holiday, Would highly recommend going in the special viewing area, and the fish and chip supper was good too. The bus driver was particularly helpful dropping us near where we were staying rather than taking us back in to the city.
The trip was brilliant! It is great to see our native fauna thriving as it should. What an enjoyable experience- although it was somewhat chilly! This was remedied by a purchase at the shop and to my delight, some of the products were australian made. Extremely educational and a worthwhile visit.
Absolutely amazing, have never seen anything like it just a beautiful and privileged experience to watch these little fellows. Would highly recommend it to anyone. To think they foat around for hours way out deep until it is safe to come in then just wander on past all of us people without a care in the world is fantastic.
Great night for viewing the penguins. The premium package was excellent value. Only downside of the night was the behaviour of some stupid people who ignored the rangers and persisted in taking photos.
This trip was the highlight of our holiday. What a fabulous evening. The coach was comfortable with plenty of leg room for the 2 hour journey down to Phillip Island. Our tour guide was very interesting and informative. I"d recommend upgrading though to the prime viewing position and the fish and chip supper. The penguins were fantastic and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
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.
Good hospitality extended to us by driver.
Safe drive and an immensely pleasurable experience.
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.
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,
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.
