This was one of the main reasons we came to Phillip Island. The visitor centre was interesting with lots to read and a few hands on attractions for younger visitors. We made our way down to the beach early to get a spot at the...More

I hate to do "the tourist", therefore I hated to go to Phillip Island with an accompanied tour. However, after the tour I can say that it was a good choice as we saw a huge deal of things. Our tour offered the Koala sanctuary,...More

What a wonderful experience to see at least 300 wee little penguins arrive from the sea at sunset waddling up past us to their various nests .They came in couples and groups and were only about 2 metres away from our well positioned circular deck...More

This is so cool. The penguins are so small and cute and the way they communicate is incredible. They were tough in terms of people taking pictures which I understand. They're quickly disappearing and they're trying to preserve what's left of the penguins before they...More

My understanding is that there are different combination passes to see multiple attractions. The key recommendation that I would have is to choose Penguins Plus as the penguin ticket. Hope this helps.
