Phillip Island Wildlife Encounters

Attention animal lovers – all your dreams will come true with this enviable adventure along the Victorian coast.

Your Acacia guide will transport you to the Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park on the Mornington Peninsula. There you will be able to meet the who’s who of Australian animals in an exclusive keeper-led experience. Hand feed kangaroos and wallabies, pet and cuddle a koala, walk with dingos, feed fury little sugar gliders, and more.

Then it’s on our way to Phillip Island in time to discover the island’s culinary scene in the picturesque seaside village of Cowes.

After dinner, we’ll set out towards the salty sea air and magnificent cliff-side vistas of Phillip Island 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.
