Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Phillip Island 3 Parks Pass - Penguin Parade and more!. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
A very enjoyable trip to Philip island as well as Churchill island. Recommended for those like me who has previously been to Melbourne and is familiar with the way to the islands. Naturally, this tour will require for you to have your own self-drived car! It is economical than paying for a wholeday guided tour which will cost at least 4x as much! This pass enables you to have free access to all the important sights and admission to the amazing penguin parade which is the highlight of this trip is included too!
As a visitor from the UK, I was very impressed with the cost of the packkage and what we experienced as a family duing our visit. The cost of the 3 attraction was a geta price and the experience we had was even better.
Although Winter is not quite the time to travel to Phillip Island as it was extremely cold, the Penguin Parade should be on everyone's list to experience at least once. It is disappointing though that you cannot take any pictures, as it is an experience you want to share with everyone else. Churchill Island was also a real treat! I loved all the antique furniture and farming equipment. We didn't get to the third venue. the Wildlife Sanctuary, as we ended up with a flat tire and it turned into a complete fiasco and took over an hour of our time, so we had to forgo the Wildlife in order to get to the Penguin Parade in time.
The Penguins were definitely the highlight of our day although the Chocolate was fun and the chocolate yummy. Churchill Island is a fabulous place for a family day out with lots of activities for children.
Great trip, definatly visit the Churchill Centre too as we wasn'tr going to but then we passed it and thought we'd pop in and it was excellent, we even got to milk a sheep!

Penguin Parade was excellent. Children enjoyed themselves very much. A bit disappointed with Koala Conservation Park. Better to see them wild at Bimbi Park, Great Ocean Road. Disappointed that Viator could not arrange for pick-up at Melbourne Airport after midnight. Not stated on website and caused a lot of problem for us as no taxi would take us family of 5. In the end, took Shuttle Skybus to Southern Cross Station and walked all the way to our service apartment at 2.30am. A bit scared, especially with children.
Better information is needed before people book this trip. The opening and closing times need to be made clearer. We travelled a long way to try and enjoy all three parks, however, when we arrived at the farm they were just closing at 4.30 pm. We then rushed to the Koala Sanctuary only once again to be told they are only open for a further 30 minutes. Finally, we went to the main attraction we were very excited to have the option to enjoy this, however, as the penguins only start their parade late and therefore finish late, it is then a long car journey back to Melbourne. The main point being what do you do between 5.30 pm and 9 pm when the penguins appear. We were in a hire car and could not stay for the penguins as the area is dark and not well sign posted for the long journey back to the city.
