1 Day Phillip Island Grand Penguins Tour from  Melbourne

Adults from $192

Offering the best of Phillip Island and its Penguins with fantastic interactive experiences for all.

Imagine this … being able to get up close and personal with native animals in a wildlife sanctuary, being guided through activities at a working farm on Churchill Island, an educational and interactive experience on the island’s newest attraction “Antarctic Journey” and finally, witnessing the star attraction ...
