Such an incredible experience!
It was incredible just waiting for the penguins to come out from the ocean and watch them walk to their burrows.
The Nobbies and Seal rocks were also truly breathtaking!
Kaitlyn from GoWest Tours is such an amazing guide as well. Very organized.
I highly recommend for families with kids.
Memorable Trip. A friendly and Informative tour guide by the same of Ms.Leah, I guess.
Seeing the penguins at Penguin Island was very fun. We lucked out as there were at least a couple of hundred penguins. With the underground option they are only 12 inches or so from your face so you get a really close up look rather than being in the general sitting outside. The Moonlit Sanctuary had some interesting animals and feeding the kangaroos and wallabies was certainly a highlight. Unfortunately you don't get much time there. Overall the tour should be longer so you have more time to spend at the both the Moonlit Sanctuary and at Penguin Island, especially with it being such a short day light wise. Go West, the tour company basically just drives you from place to place. If you are looking for more of a tour/commentary you would probably be disappointed.
I absolutely loved that day from beginning to end. One of my favourite moments was the visit of the Moonlit Sanctuary Conservation Park where I spent quality time petting wallabies. What an experience! I could have stayed there all day. It really felt being in the wild as opposed to fenced or enclosed like in a zoo. It was amazing. The stop at Brighton Beach was also nice but could probably be done on its own without the tour. Finally Philip Island is definitely a must visit. I am glad I opted for a special experience with a guide, I believe it made is extra special. I understand why we cannot take photos of the place but it's still a pity, and would have liked to know in advance, just to set my expectations. I would recommend this tour for solo travellers, couples or families.
Highlight of the trip was the penguins. We did the guide option and would highly recommend as the crowds are less.
Amazing experience Phillip island was definerly the highlight of the evening. I wish we couldve spent a little more time at the kaola/kangaroo sanctuary nut feeding them was amazing!!! Especially the wallaby, I wanted to take them all home!
Im glad we purchased the underground option for the penguins because you get to see them really up close so close you can see their eye color. Since the dont surface until evening its a bit hard to see them since they are a dark blue color when your up on top on the platform. However being in the underground portion you do miss seeing them arrive on shore but they do have a video monitor for you.
Great day out! Nice beaches and scenery. Wildlife sanctuary and feeding kangaroos was fun no pictures with koalas. Penguin parate not to be missed! Wonderful experience! Late return. Dinner plans didn't fit into schedule very well.
such an unique experience ....the penguins are so adorable .. a must do especially if you have young children .
Had a great day.
More time with the penguins would have been good.
Great tour! The Penguins are super cute! Brighton Beach was fun and the stop at the Wild Animal park was great. Getting to feed the kangaroos was a highlight for my daughters.
