15 Best Phillip Island Attractions Every Tourist Must See

Thinking about a day trip from Melbourne to see Phillip Island attractions? Same with most travellers and the main reason is to see the Penguin Parade as they march onto the shores early evening. Make sure you bring warm clothing as the temperature drops drastically when the sun goes down!

While you’re waiting for the penguins, spend the day at other natural attractions including Nobbies CentreChurchill Island Heritage Farm and Koala Conservation Center. You can save more money by purchasing a 3 park pass. If you have kids, they’ll love the Chocolate Factory and A Maze N Things.
