What you can expect

Just a short drive from Melbourne, a mystical rainforest and extraordinary wildlife encounters await on this Melbourne day tour. Following a pickup from the city, you’ll head towards the Dandenong Ranges for an enchanting walk around Emerald Lake and steam train ride on the iconic Puffing Billy. Step back in time and enjoy a nostalgic journey along one of Australia’s oldest and well preserved railways from Emerald to Belgrave Station.

The day tour continues with a visit to the Nobbies on Phillip Island to see Seal Rock and the Blowhole, then it’s off to watch the penguins emerge from the rolling waves and make their way home into their burrows during the famous Phillip Island Penguin Parade. After a day of exploration in the outskirts of Melbourne, you’ll be delivered back to Melbourne city around 9.30pm.
