Phillip Island Private Tour

With pristine white beaches and iconic wildlife experiences, there is so much to see and do on this Phillip Island Penguin Parade tour, just 90 minutes from Melbourne.

Acacia recommends climbing to the treetops at the Koala Conservation Centre so you can visit the leafy abode of one of Australia’s most-loved mammals. You’ll be amazed at just how close you can get to these cuddly critters.

Breath in the fresh, salty air as you stroll the shore of the rugged surf beach at Cape Woolamai where the lucky may catch the magical descent of the short-tailed shearwaters as they return from a day of fishing.  Explore the boardwalks at Summerland Peninsula with views to Seal Rocks, home of Australia’s largest Australian fur seal colony.

This leisurely tour also allows time for a palette-pleasing dinner demonstrating the freshest seasonal produce the island and its surrounds have to offer.  Then off to the penguin parade for an intimate Guided Ranger tour where you will be led on an informative journey through the penguin colony. Take your seat away from the crowds in the wonderfully located beachfront viewing stand, or if conditions allow, right on the sand, offering superb viewing of the penguins emerging from the water and crossing the beach.

Your Phillip Island tour will conclude with a comfortable return to journey to Melbourne.
