Here's the very best of Victoria's wildlife, nature and farming heritage. The Penguin Parade is an absolute 'must' on every visitor's itinerary, but this tour gives you so much more. First stop is Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, where you can hand-feed cute wallabies on the wallaby walk (you may see little joeys peeking out of their mothers pouches) and cuddle a koala. There are rare sightings of endangered Australian wildlife in this Eco-accredited sanctuary too. On tiny Churchill Island there's an 1850's heritage farm with strutting peacocks, shaggy Highland cattle, traditional draft horses, sheep shearing and working dogs in action. Then on to Phillip Island and the Koala Conservation Centre (watch out for koalas napping in the fork of a tree), the Nobbies and Australia's largest Fur Seal colony at Seal Rocks. Finally, the ultimate attraction: hundreds of Little Penguins popping out of the sea and waddling across the beach to their sand dune burrows in the Penguin Parade. Tour conclusion depends on time of year and ranges from 10pm during the winter months to midnight during summer as the penguins arrive at sunset.
