    This full day tour of French and Phillip Islands will get you up close and personal with cute little penguins and koalas in one of the most vibrant ecosystems, besides a 4WD excursion, a visit to Nobbies and, of course, the enthralling Penguin Parade. 

    Kickstart the day with a short trip across the Western Port Bay to French Island. The French Island is a hidden treasure of untamed wilderness, never failing to awe a visitor. Embarking on a thrilling 4WD vehicle, we will traverse the gorgeous island watching koalas and other native Aussie wildlife in their natural habitat. 

    Sail to the dreamy landscape of Phillip Island which is home to some of the best surf conditions, amazing beaches, a dazzling array of indigenous wildlife and, of course, the world-famous Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit. Treat your eyes to some pretty sceneries of cliff top houses and have a ball spotting dolphins and seals. 

    Next up is Nobbies Boardwalk & Wildlife Observation, home to a big colony of seals, sweeping sea views and dramatic bluffs that are way to take your breath away,

    Watch the enthralling Penguin Parade. Take a seat and admire what are probably some of the cuddliest creatures on the planet as you witness their sunset parade, wherein they head back to their terrestrial burrows at sunset. With an expert ranger commentary presented by the parade, this is not just an informative activity but an absolutely engaging one as well.
