Penguin Parade
Aug 2019
I had the sheer pleasure of witnessing the Penguin Parade - and it was one of the most wonderful exhibits I have EVER seen. Watching the Penguins come out of the water in droves - and making their way to the overnight nesting area beneath us was beyond memorable. For anyone who has not done this, do it now. !!!

Lots of great experiences packed into one day
Mar 2020 • Family
This was a great overall trip with tons of experiences from the get go. From Melbourne, the group makes its way to Brighton Beach and beyond for a day filled with firsts. The animal conservatory (stop 2) was a great opportunity to see native Australian animals, even though there was a ton of indigenous wildlife to be seen as well. After several pit stops and dinner, arriving for the penguin parade was a great way to cap the trip. Everyone took notice of the natural amazement that came with the penguins returning in flocks from a day of hunting, something I never thought I’d see.
Orlando was a great host, very friendly and informative throughout the day. If I were to return to Melbourne and do the trip again, I would likely request to be in one of his tours.

All in all, the experience is a must, even with an impressive list of competing attractions in the area.

Seeing the penguins were wonderful. However, it should be explained that the greatest number of penguins will be see walking up the hillside to there resting places and not coming out of the ocean.

Excellent tour
Jan 2020
The tour itself was excellent. Our tour guide, Chris, was knowledgable and energetic. This review would have have been 5 star except for the fact that the bus ran out of gas and we landed up getting back to the hotel around 1:20 AM. Anyway heading to the Penguin Parade should ensure they bring a jacket to stay warm.

Hi, This review was posted to the wrong business. There's no tour guide Chris running Phillip Island Tour for us and we never ever ran out of gas in any road. Could you please reassign the review to the correct tour operator? Thanks, Orlando
