Scenic Viewpoint
“Who wouldn't want to spend a barmy summer night watching these little guys come in from a long day fishing, to provide for their family back in the sand dunes of Phillip Island. A long time favourite of visitors to Phillip Island. Be sure to book well in advance in the summer months as this popular tourist attraction is often sold day.”

Natural Feature
“Ten little penguins would probably do it but there are plenty of other reasons to plan an adventure on Phillip Island. This little island is big on activities for every weekend wanderer: surfers and sand-castle builders, wildlife watchers and sports spectators, foodies and fishing fans, jazz cats and history buffs. The best bit (aside from the penguins)? It's only a 90-minute drive from Melbourne. Jump in the car and you'll be there in a jiffy.”

“Rural Phillip Island, off Australia’s southern coast, near Melbourne, is known for its storied motor circuit, as well as for its wildlife. At Phillip Island Nature Park, spectators gather nightly to watch the Penguin Parade, when fairy penguins make their return to burrows on the beach. The Nobbies outcropping is the viewing site for Seal Rocks, an offshore basking place for fur seals.”
