Phillip Island Penguin Parade day tours

Penguin Parade with VIP Skybox Tour
Gray Line Day Tour 324

Indulge yourself to something extra special for the Penguin Parade. Be treated like a VIP on this tour and watch the penguins' arrival from the exclusive ranger's box with access afterwards to Underground Viewing.

Sunset at Summerland Beach has drawn millions of visitors to Phillip Island. The nightly ritual of these little, flightless birds coming home from the sea is truly a special experience. Your private ranger guide on the VIP Skybox tour will escort you to your exclusive fully covered viewing platform, the ranger's box where counting of the penguins is carried out. Once ready to see the penguins from a closer distance, VIP treatment continues with entry to the exclusive Underground Viewing for eye-level viewing of the Little Penguins.
