Phillip Island Penguin Parade Tour from Melbourne Including Koala Conservation Centre
Arrive at the Koala Conservation Centre and walk along an elevated boardwalk where Koala's are looked after in natural habitats. Watch them as they sleep up in the Eucalyptus trees or peer down at you with a content smile (approximately 20-minute stop).
Next up is in the famous penguin parade. Every evening at sunset, the Little Penguins make their way home from the sea to their burrows on Summerland Beach. Watch as they waddle across the beach right in front of you, an amazing experience best seen from either the General Viewing Area, Penguins Plus or VIP Skybox (time spent at the Penguin Parade does vary depending on when the penguins come out and seasonality).
A dinner stop will be made at The Nobbies in summer or there will be time to get dinner at the Penguin Parade Cafe during winter.

The evening was awesome! The rangers were very informative and helpful and the penguins were the cutest, funniest little creatures I had ever seen. The gift shop was full of great souvenirs and it was difficult to choose what to buy. The bathrooms were clean and the paths/center well signed and easy to follow. Overall a great experience! Would recommend and would come again.
