    Phillip Island:

    On Escape Discovery Adventures’ Melbourne Day Tours to Philip Island, embark on an adventure involving nature’s most fascinating creatures, including the largest local colony of little penguins.

    Arriving at Phillip Island, which is just 90 minutes outside of Melbourne, the tour typically begins at the Phillip Island Nature Park, where you can hand-feed kangaroos, and enjoy close encounters with wallabies, emus, wombats and more. The day trip also encompasses excursions to the main township of Cowes, famed for its beautiful esplanade and foreshore; and the Nobbies coastal viewing centre, where you can observe the rocky home of Australia’s largest colony of fur seals.

    Finally, as the sun begins to set, the delightful stars of Philip Island tours gear up for their famous daily ritual – the Penguin Parade. After a day of fishing, these endearing seabirds will return to shore. From a choice viewing spot on the beach, you will see the penguins emerge from the sea and waddle up the beach to their burrows. With rangers on hand to answer questions, this penguin island tour is one wildlife experience that should not be missed!

    Escape from the everyday. Discover something new. Embrace the adventure.
