The Penguin Parade is a nightly ritual of hundreds of tiny fairy penguins waddling home to their burrows from the ocean across the sandy beaches of Phillip Island, Australia. Watch them as they feed their young with a catch of anchovies and other fish.

Penguin Parade, Phillip Island

Phillip Island is home to one of the world’s largest colonies of the world’s smallest penguins and this fascinating site is not one to be missed.

The evening tour will begin with a scenic drive through Melbourne and the countryside on the outskirts of the city in an air-conditioned coach.

You will then have the opportunity to visit the Phillip Island Visitor Information Centre and learn about the local wildlife including koalas and the large fur seal colony that lives just offshore.

You can select the standard viewing option or the Penguin Plus Viewing Platform for a better vantage point to watch the little penguins as they return home for the night.

There is also the opportunity to spot migratory birds such as shearwaters, Royal spooonbills, straw-necked ibis and the spectacle of over a million mutton birds returning to their colony at sunset.

Throughout the tour you will be led by a friendly and knowledgeable guide who will provide informative commentary throughout.

The price of your admission tickets also contributes to some of the conservation work that takes place on Phillip Island.
