What To Expect

This combo ticket gets you access to three of the most popular attractions on Phillip Island - the Penguin Parade, the Koala Conservation Centre and the idyllic Churchill Island Heritage Farm.

Penguin Parade

Arguably the most popular wildlife activity to experience when visiting Melbourne is the iconic Penguin Parade. This daily routine of Australia's Little Penguins takes place once the sun begins to set. These tickets give you entry to the Penguin Parade Stadium, a purpose-built attraction with arena-like seating. The use of red spectrum lighting along with careful positioning of the arena allows visitors to comfortably watch the penguins without disturbing them. Take your seat and watch the parade unfold in front of you - hundreds upon hundreds of Little Penguins returning to their burrows in the sand. Watch as penguins reunite with their mates and share kisses, make little dance moves and head to burrows for the night.

Koala Conservation Centre

The Koala Reserve on Phillip Island is a unique nature conservation center that aims to preserve the island's Koala population in a natural wetland area. Elevated boardwalks through the Eucalyptus trees provide visitors with an amazing vantage point, bringing you face-to-face with Koalas living in their wooden abodes. You can catch a glimpse of Koalas feeding and lazing, joeys venturing out of their mother’s pouch and learning to climb and much more at this unique reserve.

Churchill Island Heritage Farm

The Churchill Island Heritage Farm provides a glimpse into the lives of early Australian settlers and is the site of the first European agricultural pursuits in Victoria. Take a walk through the farm and see vintage cottages in landscaped gardens and lawns. Make your way to the coastline and enjoy stunning seascape views of Phillip Island and the Western Port. The farm also has a visitor center with an exhibition on the island's history, a gift shop and a café.
