The pass is valid for 6 months, so you can take your time exploring over multiple visits to the island, or see them all in one day. 
Please note: The pass does not include transportation or transfers. You must make your own way to Phillip Island and between the attractions.
Koala Conservation Centre
Come face-to-face with a handful of adorable koalas and wallabies at this tranquil nature park. Stroll along a series of elevated boardwalks through a gum tree forest, where the furry critters can be seen napping in the trees or munching eucalyptus leaves. Browse informative wildlife displays and chat with rangers to learn more about the lifecycle of Australia’s most beloved marsupial.
Churchill Island Heritage Farm
Travel back in time at the site of the first European farm in Victoria, in operation since the 1850s. Tour the historic homestead, gardens and ranch buildings at this working heritage farm, and watch live demonstrations like sheep shearing and Australian sheep dog herding. You can purchase lunch at the island café or enjoy a glass of wine while enjoying the views of Western Port and cattle grazing in the pasture. 
Penguin Parade
Bundle up and make your way to the viewing area at Summerland Beach just before sunset to watch the world-famous Penguin Parade. Be mesmerized as hundreds of fairy penguins (the world’s smallest) emerge from the ocean after a day of fishing and waddle across the beach to their burrows and chicks. Explore interactive exhibits at the visitor center and chat with rangers about this marvelous natural spectacle.
Please note: the Penguin Parade can be booked out during peak periods. We strongly recommend you contact the Penguin Parade prior to your visit to secure your preferred date.

This tour is hyped in all the travel literature. We found it highly overrated. The farm tour was the high to us, but you can see a working farm almost anywhere. The KoLa observatory was rather sad in the stE of the entrance. Even realizing that this is a sanctuary didnt account for the lack of information signage and no guides or audio. The koalas were pretty much invisible as it was daytime. I would rather have used my money for a donation, than bother with the long trip out there.
The Penguin Parade was a disaster because of the buslloads of foreign travelers that refused to listen to the Rangers regarding no photography and to stay seated so that all visitors could watch the parade. The penguins were charming but the crowd was obnoxious.

Good but not great

It is amazing especially the penguin parade where you can see a lot of them washing up the beach by the waves.

Finally got to milk a cow at Heritage Farm--it's been on my bucket list for 60 years. The penguins were amazing--dress warmly though.

We felt the 3 Park Pass was good value for money. The Penguin Parade was cute, but your level of enjoyment will depend on just how cute you find little penguins. Like everything else that gets a massive build up, it's hard to match the level of expectation. Do be prepared for a long wait before they appear, and do come prepared for really cold weather once night falls - we were lucky, it was quite a warm evening, but even so . . .
We give top,marks to the Koala Centre, that was fascinating and a rare opportunity to get close to these increasingly rare animals in their natural habitat. Unfortunately we did not have time for the Farm, but would assume this would be quite interesting too. Certainly the 3 Park Pass is good value and worth getting if you are visiting Phillip Island.

Started w the heritage farm, fiollowed by the cuddly koala and ended w the penguin parade!
Should get accommodation on the island cos it could be pretty late when the penguin parade ends

Churchill Island was the highlight for me. Very interesting place. The Koala sanctuary was well set up with nice boardwalks, but you wont get much action from the Koalas who appear bored.
The penguins were worth visiting, but there is quite a lot of waiting and if breezy the temperature drops so wrap up. They are very sweet when they emerge.
You are not permitted to take photos at penguin parade as it might spook the penguins.

Churchill Island Farm is well worth it and enjoyable for everyone. Don't miss the whip cracking or working dog demo.

The Koala Centre is well setup so you see all the koalas. Keep your eyes peeled for other animals on the forest floor.

The Penguin Parade is under whelming, too many visitors who have no respect for the penguins or park rangers. They need to find someway to limit visitors and ages, it isn't realistic to think under seven's can wait that long for the penguins to appear and then remain quiet. Many adults were not able to...unfortunately the poor penguins are frightened and come out of the ocean in ones or twos not as a big group.

The park is still under development for more koalas ... we did see the biggest echidna though and that was great

A little boring. But the penguin parade was worth it
