This is the ultimate penguin experience for serious nature lovers who want to see the penguins in a more natural setting away from the main Penguin Parade. Enjoy a two hour scenic drive to Phillip Island, with commentary and a halfway break. Take in the spectacular Bass Strait coastal views while on a short walk at The Nobbies (time dependent). Look for wild swamp wallabies, penguin burrows, sea birds and birds of prey while on a drive around Summerland Peninsula.
At the Penguin Parade you will have some limited free time for the cafe and information centre before you meet a different group of people and your own wildlife ranger for a Penguin Parade-conducted tour. After an informative briefing your ranger will take you to your very own private beach away from the main Penguin Parade, an area that's normally closed to the public. That's one group of no more than ten people, a wildlife ranger and your own beach and penguins! But you might see less penguins than other options and you do need the night-vision equipment provided as the beach has no lighting.
Tour groups are limited to 10 people 16 years and above and adult prices apply to all ages (Penguin Parade policy). Medium fitness level is required.
Due to extremely limited availability for the Ultimate Adventure Tour your booking will not be confirmed immediately, but it will be confirmed within 24 hours when we have you booked with the Penguin Parade. Your credit card will not be charged until your booking is confirmed.
