Tour Description

This tour is for the animal lover in you. You'll see the world's smallest species of penguin in its natural habitat as it emerges from the sea and burrows into the sand for the night. See Australia's largest fur seal colony as the large marine mammals sun themselves, and get up close and personal with cuddly koalas and kangaroos.

• See all the best Australian wildlife on this tour, from the world's smallest penguins to Australia's largest fur seal colony
• Take a picture with a cuddly koala or snap a selfie with a kangaroo or Tasmanian devil
• Experience the spectacular scenery at the Nobbies, where you can engage with the local marine wildlife
• Learn how this rocky outpost is the perfect environment for the rich variety of flora and fauna that call it home
• Be awed by the beauty of the Southern Ocean's clean, beautiful beaches and rocky shores

Departing after lunch, this tour takes you through the affluent, tree-lined streets of some of Melbourne's richest suburbs, heading straight to Western Port Bay. As you travel toward Phillip Island, watch the established streets fade away into the distance as the horizon becomes dotted with rural townships and farming villages. Your first stop will be Maru Koala & Animal Park. Make sure you have your camera ready as you are about to get up close and personal with all of Australia's weird and wonderful wildlife. You will have the opportunity for close encounters with cuddly koalas, kangaroos, and even Tasmanian devils.

After you've walked with the animals, you will drive over the bridge that connects Phillip Island. Look out for more camera opportunities as you will be awed by the beauty of this rugged coastline, with views out to the great Southern Ocean. The island attracts up to 3 million visitors per year as a haven for wildlife lovers and motorcycle enthusiasts, with the Moto GP track being a famous Phillip Island Landmark.

The Nobbies has views that stretch right out over the Bass Strait. This spectacular sightseeing spot contrasts the crashing of the powerful sea against the rugged south coast with long views of the horizon over the Bass Strait. You will be awed by the sight of thousands of fur seals sunbathing and looking after their young at Seal Rocks, just a kilometre and a half offshore from The Nobbies. Over 10,000 fur seals use this area to sunbathe, breed, and raise their young with stunning views across the Bass Strait. The Nobbies is also home to graceful sea birds and other marine life.

If you think baby seals and cuddly koalas are cute, wait until you get a look at the world's smallest penguins at the Penguin Parade. After visiting the tourist and information centre, you will head down to the Penguin Parade. Here, little penguins will break free from the waves to waddle onto the shore, burrowing their nests to rest their heads for the night. From viewing stations close by, you will watch these tiny penguins in the largest colony of little penguins in the world.
