Planning a late night out or a lazy morning in Melbourne, but still want to fit in a trip to Phillip Island to see the penguins? Well Bunyip has the tour for you.

No early morning hotel pick-up – check. Get the morning to yourself – check. Hundreds of cute little penguins waddling up the beach – check. Bunyip’s Phillip Island Penguin Parade Express Tour – big check!

We’ll pick you up at a respectable hour and first of all take you straight down to Phillip Island.

At the island you’ll visit Seal Rocks and the Nobbies Centre to take a walk along the boardwalk and soak in the stunning views back towards the Mornington Peninsula from Phillip Island’s most western point. Here you can also get a sneak peek of the main event, the Little Penguins, while they hide under the boardwalks and poke their heads out of the burrows waiting for the sunset when their mates return from the ocean.

Just before sunset we head over to the Penguin Parade to take our spots at the beach, ready to see the hundreds of Little Penguins as they make their way across the sand and return to their burrows in the sand dunes. See them reunited with their partners, where they give each other a little kiss, do a dance, then waddle up and into their burrows. An unforgettable afternoon – check.
