What are the top things to do in Phillip Island?:
1) Penguin Parade
One of the top attractions on the island. Would you like to see a penguin parade on a brass beach when the sun sets? The penguins on the Phillip Island are regarded the smallest on the planet, standing just 30cm. Due to the smaller size; these cute creatures are often called fairy penguins or little penguins. Tickets prices vary from $70-$150 (family packages.) Many trip organizers operate their services on penguin parade viewings during summer months. You will love seeing these cute creatures on a brass beach when the sun sets, no matter your age (kids love it.) The penguin parade viewing zone is well-organized in such a way everyone can see the creatures without any hassle. You can take photos with penguins, but make sure the camera flash is turned off — bright light can damage their vision. A Phillip Island Day Trip is the best way to get as close as possible to penguins today (you cannot go to the extremes of the planet to see them.) Also, it is nicer to see them move here and there freely; not like in a zoo. The penguin parade visitors’ center is a great place to refresh yourself. You can eat, drink, and even buy souvenirs. A photo with penguins will cost only $18. Well, just before visiting the brass beach for penguin parade, the koala conservation center is another place to visit. Your kids will love it too.
