Phillip Island Driver and Tours


Phillip Island Driver and Tours is a locally-based company, focusing on small group, personalised tours and transport so you do not have to travel with the masses.

Offering customisable itineraries to allow travellers to add their own flavour and avoid the big coach tours, Phillip Island Designated Driver can provide simple trips to the penguin parade to full-day sightseeing tours. These tours allow you make the most of your visit to Phillip Island.

The tours are guided by a Phillip Island local, so you learn about the area from someone who lives there. Phillip Island Designated Driver offer sightseeing, nature and wildlife and food and wine tours, with a focus on the best local product, attractions and landmarks.

Tours focus on spectacular coastal scenery, native wildlife, the great outdoors and fantastic food and wine. The smaller vehicle provides access to remote parts of the island. It also means every seat is a window seat. Great for viewing the action and taking photos of your journey.

All tours pick up from accommodation on Phillip Island and connect with local bus services from Melbourne. So once you’re on Phillip Island you can sit back and relax with a local.


Some listings are here because we think they’re pretty cool and you should know about them! And some, we just haven’t quite got enough info to make the ‘Good Access’ call yet.. so to answer the question, a business could be listed on our site if:

A. The business indicates they have some accessible facilities, but we haven’t quite gotten around to chatting through the details, stay tuned! If you’ve been here, leave a review and let us know about your experience!

B. We have spoken to their team.. the facilities aren’t quite what we’d call accessible BUT we’ve provided you with ‘good to know’ tips in case you’re keen to give it a go anyway!
