  • 8-hour Phillip Island Penguin Parade tour from Melbourne
  • Take in views of Australia’s stunning coastline
  • Visit Nobbies Rock penguin habitat, and catch sight of penguins and sea birds

This 8-hour tour to Phillip Island Penguin Parade starts with a pickup from Rendezvous Hotel in Melbourne. Your pickup time depends on your tour time. This tour comes with a general viewing ticket for the Penguin Parade, but it can be upgraded to an exclusive viewing ticket for an additional cost.
Once you’ve been picked up in Melbourne, sit back and relax on the hour-and-a-half drive over to Phillip Island Nature Park. On the drive, take in views of the scenic island coastline. Stop at Nobbies Rocks penguin habitat, and keep an eye out for penguins. This is a smaller habitat, and remember more penguins are to come.
Continue on to the Phillip Island Penguin parade. This area is home to around 32,000 penguins. Check out the Phillip Island Visitor center to learn more about these black-and-white animals. Then get ready for the main event — your viewing at the Penguin Parade.
After your viewing, hop back in your original vehicle for the ride to Melbourne.

The Penguin tour was amazing! Coming from Canada we were enthralled with seeing these adorable penguins come ashore in their groups of 10 to 20 and make their way up the steep hill to their burrows. The Penguin Centre gets you so close to the penguins without endangering them or frightening them. The only thing I would change is that it was a long time to drive out and wait till dark for the penguins to venture out on the beach. We stopped for supper at the Cafeteria, but this facility was not equipped to handle the crowds of people there. It was also Chinese New year, so the crowd was exceptionally large. Could we not be taken elsewhere for a light supper, or even a boxed snack would have been adequate. The penguins are the stars, so do not miss this incredible journey.

I knew I had to see the penguins when we were in Australia and this was the perfect way to go. There were only 6 of us on our tour so we were able to take our time at each stop. We stopped at the Nobbies with it's magnificent views. We saw some of the seals there and we were able to photograph a couple of the penguins that had come up early. Our guide took the back road to the penguin viewing area and we saw so much wildlife including wallabies and several types of birds. We opted for the Penguin Plus viewing and it was really something to see the penguins come up the beach and head home. Our guide also stopped once we reached Phillip Island so that we could get snacks and food to take with us, something the big bus tours can't do. Very enjoyable afternoon and evening.
