Watch the heartwarming Penguin Parade at sunset and experience Phillip Island’s picture postcard-worthy beauty with stunning landscapes and enchanting wildlife.

Visit Seal Rocks and the Nobbies Centre where you can stroll along the boardwalk and admire panoramic views of the Mornington Peninsula from Phillip Island’s most westerly point. Catch a glimpse of the Little Penguins under the boardwalks, as they poke their heads out of the burrows waiting for dusk when their mates return from the ocean.

Just before sunset, get seated on the beach, ready to see the hundreds of Little Penguins as they make their way across the sand and return to their burrows in the sand dunes. Watch them exchange little kisses with their partners, do a dance, then waddle into their burrows.

Our friendly guides ensure a more customized experience, and the limited group size is perfect for making the most of this experience.
