Download Penguin Parade times

Phillip Island (or Penguin Island as it called some times) is one of just two the topmost places around Melbourne which all Melbourne’s visitors have on their short list. (The second is being a Great Ocean Road, naturally).

But Phillip Island has much more to offer than just it’s undisputed jewel attraction – the famous Penguin Parade. It also has Motorcycle Grand Prix, fabulous surf beaches, ocean fishing, wildlife parks and many more.

We singled out for your wine tour the second most exciting (in our opinion) place to visit on Phillip Island – Koala Conservation Sanctuary. Who wouldn’t like to find oneself close and personal with the cuddliest animal on Earth – THE KOALA? :))

However, we are running wine tours here people! So on this day tour you will start your program with tasting at amazing Yarra Valley wineries! And then, after lunch in Healesville (we usually suggest very impressive historic Healsville Hotel for this porpoise – fabulous food, exceptional local wine list, great service…) we will take short and pleasant journey through the lush Yarra Ranges and picturesque Victorian countryside and in a couple of hours arrive to Phillip Island.

 Yet another absolute MUST DO tour for the overseas visitors of Melbourne.

Indeed! Start your day with fun and indulgence and end it with the major tourist attraction around Melbourne and the whole Australia.

Have a wine tasting at some of the best wineries in Australia in Yarra Valley with its splendid scenery and terrific cool climate wines.

Ride through the lush Yarra Ranges and enjoy forests and picturesque alpine scenic roads of one of Victoria’s most beautiful countrysides.

Have a close encounter with the cuddlies and cutest native Australians – the Koalas at Koala Conservation Sanctuary and finally, the true highlight of this day tour from Melbourne, the most well known wildlife attraction in Australia, the Penguin Parade on Phillip Island!

So, again, what can we say, especially to our overseas guests?
