Can't decide if you should visit the famous penguin parade at Phillip Island or head down the Great Ocean Road to the iconic 12 Apostles? Why not both?
Departing Melbourne you will take the inland route to Port Campbell, heading straight to the 12 Apostles. Stroll along the board walks and check out the various lookout points to admire the magnificent size of the limestone stacks. You can head down to the beach at Loch Ard Gorge and Gibson Steps to get the sand between your toes. As you wind your way along the Great Ocean Road you will get the chance to walk through an ancient rainforest, spot wild koalas and visit small coastal towns. Overnight at Bellarine Holiday Park.
Start the morning with a ferry transfer from Queenscliff to Sorrento, keeping an eye out for dolphins as you cross the bay! Along the way to Phillip Island you will visit the brightly coloured bathing boxes at Portsea and stop in at Moonlight Sanctuary to encounter some of Australia's most adorable native animals. Explore the spectacular coastline of the island from the boardwalks and lookout points set amongst natural sea bird gardens at the Nobbies. As the sun sets, watch hundreds of little penguins make their way across the beach at the famous Penguin Parade.
What you need to bring: Water, hat, sunscreen, comfortable walking shoes, toiletries, rain jacket, camera, swimwear, towel, appropriate clothing for warm and cold conditions, a small blanket/scarf and beanie can be a good idea for the Penguin Parade in winter as it gets cold on the beach.
Photography is not permitted at the penguin parade.
Luggage is limited to a 5KG overnight bag.
