Penguins 'n City Tour
Gray Line Day Tour 387

A fantastic combination of two tours; one introducing you to our fabulous city of Melbourne and the other, our most adorable and popular Penguins tour to Phillip Island. It's a long day of touring but well worth the experience!

Be acquainted with Melbourne Gray Line style! City tour highlights include a delightful guided walking tour through our favourite laneways and arcades, visit to Fitzroy Gardens and a time at Queen Victoria Markets*. You will have free time for lunch (own expense) before joining the second part of your tour to witness the nightly ritual of the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island. On the way, visit Churchill Island and Koala Conservation Centre where you can look for koalas in their natural habitat from tree top boardwalks.
