Phillip Island is world famous for its delightful little penguins and the nightly Penguin Parade. This great family activity will delight both kids and parents, as you watch the world’s smallest penguins emerge from the water and waddle across the beach to their burrows every night at sunset.

The Penguin Parade offers an exclusive Behind the Scenes Tour for families during School Holidays, selected Long Weekends and Public Holidays. Join an eco-accredited ranger for a 30 minute tour before the Penguin Parade. Find out what Penguins eat, how penguins survive on land and in the water, where they live and play with puppets to uncover the secret lives of penguins. You will also receive tips on the best viewing for the Penguin Parade and a little penguin jumper to take home.


Join a number of other fabulous ranger lead activity programs during selected school holidays.
