One of the most amazing things I've ever seen. Well worth the 4-hour round trip from Melbourne. Our bus driver, Steve, played Man From Snowy River on the way home, since by then, it was dark outside. He also showed us wallabies and geese on the protected part of Philip Island.
This was truly amazing. Watching the Penguins return to their burrows was a unique experience. Our driver was fun and very knowledgable. I would recommend this tour to anyone!!!!
It's pretty dark on the beach where the penguins come ashore. I think it was worth it to pay the extra money to get closer to where they come up, instead of the general viewing area. Then you walk along the boardwalk, where you can really see them very close. I loved this tour. Our tour guide was personable and friendly..
This tour was amazing and I highly recommend it. It was phenomenal to see these little penguins up close in their natural environment. If you are in Melbourne, it's a must see.
The tour was fantastic - bravo to Roger our driver on the day. He kept us informed and was entertaining as well. Would highly recommend this adventure to anyone who wants to see these cute little guys
Colin the bus driver was excellent, friendly and informative, highly recommend
Even though it was raining, the Little Penguins were incredible to hear and see.
Absolutely brilliant. Highly recommended. Small hiccup with ATT Kings regarding our free fish and chip meals included with our advance payment but the venue provided them anyway.
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.
