Tips from locals
Enjoy the beautiful beaches where you can watch a penguin colony's sunset waddle from the sea to their burrows.
Check out the new Penguin Parade centre during the day for free, you might see some penguins who decided to stay home from fishing for the day. There's also some interactive indoor activities for the kids. The penguin parade itself is a paid entry evening activity, book ahead!
A trip to the Phillip Island Penguin Parade is a must. Make sure to rig up as it can get cold at night and be sure to book in advance.
A must see when coming to Phillip Island is the Penguins, Seals & Whale Watching.
Very popular attraction on Phillip Island. Fairy penguins return to their burrows every evening at dusk after spending the day feeding in the ocean. Bookings can be made via www.penguins.org.au
So cold here, so a big warm coat is a must when you view the famous penguin parade at sunset. You will sit on the boardwalks and watch scores of fairy penguins waddle from the beach to their nest.
Famous Fairy Penguins come in every night at dusk. A must see if visiting the Island.

“There are a num her of resident pelicans on the shore at San Remo, just before you cross the bridge to get to the island. It is worth a stop and look. Pelicans are feed daily at noon. It is a fun thing to see and great photo opportunity. Whilst there you can grab some fish and chips from the fish co-op and enjoy them on the pier. ”
