5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

The entire day was about animals! Saw my favourite wombat, fed a LOT of wallabies and kangaroos, and enjoyed the grand finale of watching hundreds of little penguins returning home from work! If all you want is to get close to Aussie animals, perhaps even to cuddle and feed them, this is the tour for you

The sites visited during this tour are top quality and I would recommend all of them. The Phillip Island Penguin Parade is of course the highlight, but I found the farm to be an excellent stop on the tour as well, it was extremely well time budgeted and we were able to see everything we expected without feeling rushed. We even were able to see a lamb being born! I have two complaints that make this a 4 star instead of a 5 star tour: The time at the moonlit sanctuary was very rushed, and we were not well informed of our options. We had been in Australia for 3 weeks now, and had already held a koala but the koala encounter was the only one advertised. We would have loooved to have done the dingo encounter, which is unique and no where had we been had we seen such a thing offered, but it was right at lunch time and we were not told of its existence until after we ate lunch. We would have gladly deferred lunch by 15 minutes to do the dingo encounter! So that was disappointing. The other complaint is that the food place we were taken to on Phillip Island was terrible, not the food itself, but the way the establishment was run, it was like they had never seen that level of people buying food there before although I am sure it is a daily occurrence. It was expensive, disorganized, and very much a disappointment although it did not ruin the greatness of the rest of the tour, only detracted slightly. The koala sanctuary was nice as well, but we had seen better on Kangaroo Island. If we had not been there previously, we would have been more impressed.

My family and I enjoyed the Penguins tour with stop at moonlit sanctuary. It was packed with fun-filled activities such as penguin spotting at The Nobbies, tea picnic at Churchill farm and board-walking at the Koala conservation centre. Moonlit sanctuary and seeing the fairy penguins were a bonus.
