Great experience - the penguin part. The first half including to many stops, breaks and pathetic "wildlife/private-zoo/coffee shop" - I could do without them.
worth it, though it it's pretty late by the time you get back to Melbourne.
We enjoyed the tour. The bus driver (can't remember his name) was very nice and friendly, he didn't rush us and gave good commentary. At the end of the night he dropped us off at our hotels and seemed to want to ensure that we were safe.
Amazing to see these cute little guys waddle in from the ocean. The only negative is that you CANNOT take pictures, even with your flash off.
A long trip but worth it to see the little penguins in their natural environment.
Good tour, bus driver informative and willing to stop for photo opportunity of rugged coastline. Also slowed down so that we might see penguins in burrows and good looks at the swamp wallabies. As for the stars of the show, the fairy penguins didn't disappoint. They tumbled from the surf and waddled up the floodlit beach in small groups. If your vantage spot is not close to the beach, be aware that as you walk back along the boardwalks, you will be up very close to them and have good sightings .Unfortunately, you will not be allowed to take photos of them - the rangers explain why. Also, rug up no matter what time of year it is.
Picked up from hotel at short notice. Capable and communicative driver, but because of the Melbourne traffic on the Friday of a holiday weekend, we only got to the penguin parade just as it began. A 3.5hr journey rather than the normal 1.5 hrs. Enjoyed the trip very much. More info of eating options at the site would be helpful.
The tour is exactly as it was described to be . The little penguins were so adorable. I think they should just add that taking photos are not allowed. :( I would surely go back next time with my children:)
Also if the weather was not the best (rain all the time) it has been a really great experience that I would repeat with pleasure!!
Tour guide informative - very friendly - Plenty of time to eat at cafe before going to beach to see the little guysI would recommend this trip to all who go to Melbourne. I rate this experience 5 stars
The staff was very knowledgable and has a great sense of humor. It was a very memorable experience.
