Philip Island One Day Tour (11 hours)

Day Tour Itinerary

Your Private LGBTQ+ Friendly tour departs from your Melbourne Hotel/Accommodation in a comfy air conditioned vehicle. Your personal driver and experienced local guide for the day will greet you personally and whisk you off towards Phillip Island. 

En-route you will stop off at a popular Local Wildlife Park, to discover some native wildlife, and then the chance to get up close and personal to kangaroos and wallabies, whilst hand feeding them in their natural environment. 


The Koala Conservation Centre is next, where you can explore the tree-top boardwalks and see koalas up close in their natural habitat.

Wander the island's extensive trails with your guide, through the natural Australian bushland and enjoy the abundant bird life, whilst trying to spot wild Wallabies. A visit to the nearby Swan Lake Animal Sanctuary is also likely to thrill. 


Dinner (own cost) stop at the Nobbies Centre, home to Australia's largest Seal population and Scenic Coastal Boardwalk, before making your way to island's main attraction - The Penguin Parade!

Returns Melbourne (return times and meal times vary depending on time of year).

*We have an additional 12 hour Extended tour option which has the same driving time (4 Hours) as the above Standard Tour, but will give you an extra hour of touring time on the island - so you can add some additional activities (such a short hikes, wine tasting at a local winery, etc).

Guest Tour Reviews


" Truly amazing 4 day tour. So varied. My friend told me the 2 day tour was one of their highlights from their holiday in Oz. And our 4 day tour with them didn’t disappoint.

Our guide James and driver for the 4 days was so friendly. And he really knew the areas like the back of his hand, despite the vast distance between the different locations. "
