Every evening at dusk, the Little Penguins come home from the sea at Phillip Island. From the waves – across the beach – to the sand dunes – the Little Penguins come almost close enough to touch as they waddle to their burrows. Sunset at Summerland Beach has drawn millions of visitors to Phillip Island. It is the nightly ritual of these little flightless birds which will enthrall you as you observe from the beach and the elevated boardwalk.
This tour departure in the afternoon and will take you direct to Philip Island for witnessing the Penguin Parade. This suits best for tourists who cannot make it in the morning.
Koalas – totally Australian – peering down from the gum trees where they live. Fat and furry, wet noses and a gentle smile of contented living on Phillip Island Seals near the sea, basking in the late sunlight on half-tide rocks complement this island, rich in wildlife which makes Phillip Island a very special place.
