A trip to Phillip Island is a must for nature lovers and those seeking a unique Australian experience. Phillip Island is home to a collection of Australian native wildlife including the famous little penguins and koalas. This insightful tour lets you get up close and personal with these animals and shows off the rugged coastline, where the rocky shore meets sandy beaches, often lined by keen surfers. During your tour, come face to face with Australia's most iconic marsupials at the Koala Conservation Centre. Exploring the tree-top boardwalks you can glimpse koalas up close in their natural habitat. Wander the extensive trails through Australian bushland, home to many animals including wallabies, echidnas and bats. Perhaps visit the dramatic coastline of Cape Woolamai where surfers await the perfect wave all year round, encircled by spectacular coastal scenery. Stop for a wine tasting, visit ocean lookouts, spend time bird watching, or meander along coastal boardwalks at The Nobbies where you can view the treacherous Seal Rocks, a rocky outcrop home to Australia's largest fur seal colony. Every evening at sunset the Little Penguins come out of the surf and return to Summerland Beach. They waddle up to their burrows, just as their ancestors have done for thousands of generations, meandering straight past eager visitors who wait in anticipation for the night's performance. Watch this miracle unfold in front of you from an exclusive raised platform away from the crowds and see these unique creatures return to their nests in the sand dunes.
