Little Penguins delight all ages in nightly parade

Just 90-minutes out of Melbourne you’ll discover one of the Victoria’s most delightful natural tourism adventures. The stars of the Phillip Island Nature Park are without doubt the penguins that parade the beachfront come nightfall.

The Summerland Peninsula in the south-west of Phillip Island is home to around 32,000 little penguins – one of the largest colonies in Australia. Each night at sunset, the penguins, numbering in the hundreds or thousands, depending on the season, make the march across the beach and return to their burrow homes in the sand dunes.

There’s a range of ways to see this delightful spectacle – from a viewing platform and underground viewing to a guided ranger tour.

The Phillip Island Nature Park’s other attractions are: The Wild Ocean Ecoboat Adventure, Koala Conservation Reserve, Churchill Island and the Antarctic Journey at the Nobbies.
