Want to meet some of Australia’s most famous wildlife up close and personal? The 1 day Penguins & Wildlife Nature Experience is the perfect option in such case. You’ll visit some of the most well-known natural attractions in the area on this small-group day trip leaving from Melbourne, including the Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, The Nobbies Boardwalk, and the famous Penguin Parade.

From Melbourne, we travel to Moonlit Sanctuary, where you can see kangaroos, wallabies, reptiles, Tasmanian Devils, and, of course, koalas, as well as other well-known Australian species. You might even get a chance to interact closely with a Koala or a wallaby. * Small fee applies.

At The Nobbies, you may wander along the clifftop boardwalks with views out to The Nobbies and Seal Rocks, explore the boardwalks, and take in the expansive coastal views of Bass Strait. As you stroll along the boardwalks, you’ll have the opportunity to observe a variety of breathtaking sites, and if you’re lucky, you just might catch a glimpse of the blowhole in action!

At Phillip Island, marvel at the incredible sight of  penguins waddling from the ocean to their burrows. From our viewing platforms and boardwalks, you can observe these magnificent seabirds, which call the largest tiny penguin colony in the world home.

Watch the tiny penguins run across the sand to their nests as dusk falls. After that, stroll the boardwalks to see these amazing creatures in their natural environment. They may be seen interacting with neighbours, mating, or taking care of their chicks.

Keep an eye out for other local wildlife while you’re on your wildlife trip, such as swamp wallabies, Eastern barred bandicoots, Cape Barren geese, and short-tailed shearwaters.

This is a very amazing chance to interact closely with environment and wildlife!
