Phillip Island Nature Parks


Home to the world-famous Penguin Parade and other popular wildlife attractions – all only 90 minutes from Melbourne.

The Penguin Parade includes numerous tour options for any taste and budget – from self-guided general viewing and the exclusive Penguins Plus and Underground Viewing, to a variety of ranger-guided tours.

Take a virtual tour to the world’s most extreme continent at the new Antarctic Journey at the Nobbies Centre. Enjoy the hands-on family fun of the interactive activities, and immerse yourself in the spectacular multimedia attraction. The augmented reality technology will let you pat a penguin or stroke a seal, in a ‘virtual’ experience.

Enjoy a fast and fun boat ride on the Wild Ocean EcoBoat Tour to Australia’s largest fur seal colony. Take the 90 minute Adventure tour to get up close to the seals and witness their playful antics at Seal Rocks, against the backdrop of the rugged cliffs of Phillip Island’s south-west coast.

Get up close to one of Australia’s most loved animals at the Koala Conservation Centre and journey back in time to explore the heritage and tranquil scenery of Churchill Island.


Discover the great range of self-guided viewing options or choose one of the ranger-guided tours at the Penguin Parade. The Penguin Parade offers multiple viewing options accessible for wheelchairs, and also offers wide pathways and parking for prams.


To access the viewing points, you exit the visitor centre and head to the boardwalks. There are exclusive  viewing areas in General Viewing, Penguins Plus and Underground Viewing (all experiences vary in ticket price).
