Visit the penguins, see koalas from the treetop boardwalks at the Koala Conservation Centre, step back in time at Churchill Island Heritage Farm and immerse yourself in the hands on fun at the interactive Antarctic Journey. This four parks pass has it all!
Only 90 minutes from Melbourne, Phillip Island offers an abundance of Australian wildlife, spectacular scenery, and exciting new experiences. Witness the natural spectacle of the world's smallest penguins arriving home at sunset each evening at the world-famous Penguin Parade. Experience the nightly parade from the beachfront viewing stands as the penguins emerge from the waves and waddle across the sand. Be sure to spend some time on the boardwalks and watch the penguins up close as they make their way along their penguin pathways to their burrows.
Enjoy the hands-on fun and interactive experiences in the new Antarctic Journey. Feel the freeze in the Antarctic Chill Zone or visit the Research Station and Sound Lab. Immerse yourself in a spectacular multimedia experience, surrounded by creatures of the deep like whales, sharks and more. Thanks to cutting edge ‘augmented reality’ technology, you will see yourself on a huge screen, standing on an ice floe, patting a penguin or stroking a seal.
Come face-to-face with wild koalas in their natural habitat from the treetop boardwalks at the Koala Conservation Centre. Learn about these amazing animals and the role the centre has played in protecting Phillip Island’s koalas and their habitat. Stroll along the woodland walking trails and you may come across some of the many visiting native animals including wallabies, echidna, and over 35 different species of birds. Journey back in time and explore the heritage and tranquil scenery at Churchill Island Heritage Farm, an historic working farm with Clydesdale horses, Highland cattle and an animal nursery. Hands on farming activities run daily, including sheep shearing, cow milking, whip cracking and working dog demonstrations.
