You will be picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned minibus for your Phillip Island Tour. An English-speaking guide will accompany you on this tour.

The following is a tentative itinerary break-up:

1400h (2:00pm): Arrive at The Australian Garden, Royal Botanic Gardens, Cranbourne. Enjoy a guided eco-tour through this ancestral home of the Mayone-Bulluk clan of the Boonerwurung people. Drink in the breathtaking 360-degree views across South-eastern Victoria and Westernport Bay from the elevated Trig Point lookout. You will spend about an hour in this garden.

1550h (3:50pm): Arrive at the Philip Island Chocolate Factory for an approx. 40 minutes’ stop to visit the sweetest tourist attraction on Phillip Island. Watch the chocolatiers at work, as they hand make delicious chocolate varieties using recipes handed down over many generations. Enjoy complimentary samples as well as a fascinating presentation about this most popular of foodstuffs and how it is created.

1645h (4:45pm): Arrive at the Koala Conservation Centre for an approx. 40 minutes’ halt. Walk among the treetops and view wild koalas at this iconic wildlife attraction.

1745h (5:45pm): Arrive at Point Grant – The Nobbies and Seal Rocks for a brief but delightful approx. 20 minutes. Admire some of Phillip Island’s rugged coastal scenery. Enjoy views over Westernport Bay and Bass Strait, including Seal Rocks, home to Australia’s largest population of fur seals. Explore the visitor centre to learn about our coastal marine life and view Australian fur seals.

1830h (6:30pm): Arrive at Cowes where you will have a leisurely hour to enjoy a dinner break (payable direct) in Phillip Island’s largest town.

1945h (7:45pm): Arrive at Phillip Island Penguin Parade and await the arrival of the Little Penguins, the world’s smallest penguins. View Little Penguins at close proximity as they make their way across the beach and in to their homes. Complimentary hot beverages and snacks (coffee, tea and biscuits) will be provided on boardwalk. Take some time to explore the visitor information centre. If you didn’t feel like dinner earlier, here’s your chance to eat as well as earn some brownie points!
