It is worthwhile to spend at least half a day to 1 day on Phillip Island. If you wish to see more, think about renting a car to travel around the island, since the attractions are all spread out. Notable activities for seeing nature are the 2 hours Seal cruise (office in Cowe) and the Penguins Parade (I did the Ultimate Adventure) that brings you to a quiet beach and watch the little penguins.
Join this one day tour from Melbourne and see our famous Penguin Parade, see unique wildlife and explore some of the best highlights that Phillip Island has to offer!
