  • Phillip Island: Penguins and Wildlife Full-Day Tour

    3. Phillip Island: Penguins and Wildlife Full-Day Tour

    After pick-up from your accommodation in central Melbourne or St Kilda, journey out through the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne to the small country town of Tooradin. Continue above the top of Westernport Bay and stop at Maru Koala and Wildlife Park. Here you will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with Australian wildlife including kangaroos, wallabies, emus, dingos, wombats and of course, koalas. You’ll also have the option to have your photo taken with a koala (not included, pay at the time) and hand feed kangaroos! From here it is a short drive to Phillip Island where you’ll make your way to the spectacular views of Cape Woolamai and Woolamai Beach. Walk along the beach, dip your feet in or sit back and relax. A short drive along the island will take you to the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit. The far western end of the Island is some of the most spectacular coas...

    Organization was really fine, everything worked out and Tara was a very nice and funny guide. To watch the penguin parade was a great experience, too. So funny and cute to watch the little guys walking along the seaside to their homes. Maybe good to know: Photography is not allowed with the penguins, but at all other events it's no problem. Take warm clothes (windbreaker, scarf and cap) for the penguins, because in late evening/night it gets really cold with the wind at the beach. Not as good as expected the go-together with the Koalas. It's quite expensive to get in touch with them (~30 AUD) for a quick photo - and that's all. No option for stay longer close to them, maybe little feeding or just watch them close. And my photo wasn't that nice, too (couldn't see it before printed :\). So think about the Koala photo (you have to wait in queue -> time loss), but at all I would recommend the tour and do again :)

It was a good art exhibition I have ever experienced. Realistic 3D paintings made us feel we are in different world. Thanks for giving us an opportunity to enjoy the art and making our day beautiful. My son and daughter enjoyed taking pictures. We cherish the moment coming back home,thanks.

My 2 grandchildren and I enjoyed all aspects of the Aquarium. Some areas were a little bit crowded for the young ones to get a good view, but that is not anything anyone can change . We must return next year .

Great set up. My grandchildren loved the huge crab and lobsters near the entrance. Amazing variety of sea life. The movie was a fun idea.

ArtVo was amazing, both kids were entertained and engaged for the whole visit.
