A truly unique wildlife experience! Leave Melbourne early afternoon and visit Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park. Here you will feed kangaroos and wallabies and learn about their conservation programs. Spend the evening watching Victoria’s largest colony of little penguins return ashore.
This Eco-certified sanctuary showcases the famous and endangered faces of Australian wildlife, including southern bettong, eastern quolls and rare fluffy gliders. Get close to these beautiful animals with the opportunity to hand feed them, watch and be captivated like never before! From here travel to Phillip Island to see The Nobbies and Seal Rocks, take a stroll along the boardwalk and enjoy the spectacular views along Phillip Island’s rugged south coast. Next stop is Summerland Beach, home to Victoria’s largest colony of little penguins for the nightly Penguin Parade. Watch as hundreds of little penguins make their way across the beach and return to their sand dune burrows. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity no one should miss!
