What you'll do

See some of the best-secluded beaches and panoramas on Gippsland's coast as you journey to see Philip Island's famous penguins on this premium small-group guided tour (7 people max). Following a relaxed 90 minute drive from Melbourne we will traverse the clifftop path high above the Bass Strait surf on a 4km hike along the George Bass Coastal Walk (we think the photo opportunities will be a highlight of your trip!) After this we will journey across the Phillip Island bridge stopping at the fishing village of San Remo before heading to the Nobbies where you will have the chance to see Australia's largest colony of seals, wallabies, Cape Barren Geese and Echidnas as you stroll the boardwalks. We then drive a short distance around the Summerland Peninsula for dining and souvenir opportunities at the new architecturally designed penguin visitor centre before sunset and the amazing fairy penguin parade (entrance included)! Included is a drop home at any city centre, South Yarra or St Kilda location.
