The penguins are so cute! The optional extra - Private Guided Penguin Parade Experience - gave us the chance to watch the penguins in the very close distance - not only seating in an exclusive area but also walking along the penguins' path. The private guide was very informative. And our group guide was experienced, he saved us from wasting time in waiting for penguins and queuing for the bathroom.
This tour was fantastic
Paula Lambert 6 months ago

This tour was fantastic, Joel was a great guide! He gave both good and helpful information along the way. Maybe a suggestion would be to offer blankets for the evening. We saw another tour who all had matching blankets.... Although it was fantastic that there was wifi on the bus!

It was great
Moriya Ben Yosef 7 months ago

It was great! I really enjoyed it. Our guide Bill was awesome. Good itinerary and good advice about where to see the penguins, also learned a lot on this tour. It was a bit cold so Bill also took us to this discount store to buy raincoats and such. Thanks!

This is my 2nd time doing this penguin island tour on Phillip Island
Angel 2 years ago

This is my 2nd time doing this penguin island tour on Phillip Island. And I must say this was the best time as I don't have to be there too early to be seated and still able to find a seat. I was able to view the penguin up close even when we were walking back to the exit we sighted so many of them walking past us and we had to stop for the Penguins to cross! So glad that I made this 2nd trip to Phillip Island. Thumbs up and a must do if you have yet to visit.

The penguin parade experience was a great day out
Cassandra Beutel 2 years ago

The penguin parade experience was a great day out. Even better that it didn’t start until 11.30am! We loved being able to have a sleep in after a late flight into Melbourne and still have an adventure packed day. One tip - whatever you are thinking of wearing/taking to combat the cold, take/wear more!

It's a great experience to joint the tour for my first time
Saw Sui Lin 3 years ago

It's a great experience to joint the tour for my first time. The coach Mr. Adam is great & his service is best. Overall I love the trip & is very enjoyable fund & experience for me.

The Phillip Island Tour was really amazing
Xue Yan 3 years ago

The Phillip Island Tour was really amazing! The tour guide was very informative and helpful. He planned the route really well, so that we could be on schedule. The WIFI was a bit of a problem. Only 10 people could login and there were 23 people. I did not get to use the WIFI at all during the whole trip. The penguins at Phillip Island are really worth seeing!

Excellent stops - Brighton Beach to see the colourful boxes
Brittany 3 years ago

Excellent stops - Brighton Beach to see the colourful boxes, Moonlit Animal Sanctuary to feed wallabies and kangaroos and see native Australian animals, the Nobbies to see the penguin homes and stunning ocean views, and finally the Penguin Parade. Watching the penguins cautiously make their way across the beach was adorable and then getting to see them close up while on the boardwalk was incredible! Highly recommend this tour for families or anyone with kids and it is definitely a must for tourists who want to get up close and personal with kangaroos and wallabies. The only thing that could have improved the tour was the tour guide. He was a bit scattered and did not seem to be very confident about his information and facts. He spent a lot of time talking about inconsequential or unimportant information we didn't need to know. The stops themselves were incredible though and I know this company usually has better tour guides from previous experience.

11/10 recommend this tour
Lauren Kuhn 3 years ago

11/10 recommend this tour. The staff at Go West are genuinely friendly and extremely helpful. The sanctuary is unique and provided opportunities to really see the Aussie wildlife up close and personal. Additionally, the views are picture perfect and make for great keepsakes. The tour guides provide recommendations to avoid the crowds and still receive the best experience at the Penguin Parade. All in all, I'd tell anyone coming to Melbourne to do this in a heartbeat. It's worth every penny.
