we did not get to go. Went to the wrong pick up point and missed the shuttle
It was a really good day! The zoo was cool, and the penguins parade is just awesome. We boked the ultimate option which worth it, you'll be staying on the beach with kind of a chair provided which is compfy, and also binocular so you can see the penguins well! They don't allow pictures during the pinguin parade but at least you enjoy the full time!!!
You may be able to do it by yourself, it's up to your motivation for the 2h drive from Melbourne one way.
We had a wonderful experience, the staff were all very helpful and the penguins were a delight
Very enjoyable and informative. Driver was very welcoming and we had a lot of fun

This was fantastic! We had a personal ranger, headphones and binoculars. We sat up close on the beach and had a front row viewing. Then we followed then as they waddles to their burrows. It gets cold so bring a jacket. There were lots of people, but our private group was 9. Must do when in Australia!
Wonderful trip. Possibly the highlight of our trip to Australia. The trip was long, but the breaks were very well timed in between. My wife and I traveled with our 4 year old daughter. The stop to the koala and kangaroo petting/feeding park was wonderful. Nice stops for lunch/dinner at some quaint towns. The penguin parade was excellent! It was great to see the little penguins parading just a few feet from us - an incredible experience. Highly recommended!
Loving the day tour end to end especially the Phillip Islamd tour. Our driver Colin was simply fantastic. Very patiently explaining to us and drove us to areas where we can see the tiny penguins in sight and even able to snap secret shots at convenient sights. Arrived slight before midnight and the kids were exhausted but definitely enjoyed the tour.
En fantastisk upplevelse! Långt över förväntan, minne för livet! Tack till en engagerad bussförarguide som gjorde turen till vad den blev!
The perfect day! Our tour guide Edward and our Penguin VIP Guide Claire made the experience one that we'll never forget. The wildlife park was excellent we went to one in Sydney that was less than favorable and here you can feed large kangaroos and pet adorable koalas. Philip Island and the penguins were unforgettable - it's unreal to see these little penguins in their natural environment. I would definitely recommend the VIP tour so you can get as close to them as possible. Edward always kept the bus entertaining and lively with his great commentary. Highly recommended!

gr4eat day of visiting w/coalas ,kangoros,walabies and penguins
Lovely experience - definitely take the choice to have a ranger with you - besides getting the best seats - it really helps to understand whats going on and what to look for. Tip: wrap up warm
It's such an amazing experience that I had never have before. And you won't believe how beautiful it is until you actually see it yourself. So worth going!
Fabulous day! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, polite and friendly.
The ride to Philips Island was quite long from the hotels but the guide made it pleasant by talking the whole way. Stopped for dinner by the beach and was enjoyable as well. And of course, the penguins were adorable.

Long trip and some stops, like at the petting zoo, could have been shorter. However, enthusiasm of guide Adran, and the thrill of the penguins and wallabies on Phillips Island made it worthwhile.
Very nice view in the Phillip Island, and tour guide was very nice and helpful
Nice coach for dive to penguins. Had fun feeding the Kangaroos on the way down. The penguins where amazing. Great trip. If you are ring in August dress warm, woolly hat, warm jacket.
Tour was awesome!! Steve, our tour guide, was fantastic!! Highly recommend this tour as aMUST do when in Melbourne!
