This was a fantastic trip. The drive was quite a bit longer than I though, but absolutely worth it. The driver, Mark, was excellent, friendly, funny, and personable. The little wildlife park stop was great the only time I saw an albino grey kangaroo - actually two of them, but the sunset views from the cliffs on Phillip Island were breathtaking. And the little penguins are awesome!!
We were picked up just after lunch and taken to an animal sanctuary where we saw a variety of animals and birds, but particularly wallabies, kangaroos and koalas. We were able to purchase feeding for the wallabies and kangaroos and had them eat out of our hands. Later we travelled to Phillip Island where, after some sight-seeing and a meal, we went in the evening to watch the penguins come ashore as the sun set and then head for their nests. Unfortunately, the rain came on and we had to buy capes, but it was still a fascinating experience - one not to be missed.
It was a very relaxing and restful tour and my family and I were so very excited to have seen the penguins upclose and see how their activities and movements were in the evening. Our experience were worth the cost of getting the Skybox Penguins because you are so close to the penguins and you can clearly see how they walk in line and in group and they were so amazing! Would recommend this tour to my friends and relatives!
Fun and easy trip. So many penguins!

If you do this tour I recommend the ranger tour it was well worth the price and you have a private viewing area near the beach and the explanations from the ranger highlighted the tour.
The tour provider was AAT King and our driver was Peter. He was excellent! Very knowledgeable and funny. And he was regularly making sure the tour group was well attended to and he asked each of us if we had seen penguins. My group was lucky enough to see them and they were so cute! I was very happy with the tour.
Very good tour - well organised and staff very helpful and informative.
Maybe pack some snacks/drinks for the tour as you have to buy from cafes on route which were very busy and had long queues.
this was a fantastic tour every thing about it was excellent, but to see the penguins come in of the sea at night was totally amazing, highly recommend it.
We chose to take the ranger guided tour and it was worth every cent. You are taken very close to where the penguins come on shore. The ranger provided commentary via a head set, she also gave us binoculars. This is an amazing experience for people of all ages.
Our bus driver was very entertaining.too. The whole experience was truly memorable.
