Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, an Eco-certified sanctuary, is first. Discover native animals in their natural habitat including kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, brilliantly coloured birds and rare and endangered species. Handfeed wallabies– keep an eye out for tiny joeys wriggling out of their mothers’ pouches – and have a close encounter with a koala (fee applies).
At the Nobbies and Seal Rocks, the Clifftop boardwalk opens up breathtaking views of Phillip Island’s wild south coast, and there are further lookout points among natural sea bird gardens which have spectacular flowering displays in spring. 1.5 km offshore you’ll see Seal Rocks, home to Australia’s largest fur seal colony. Take a beach walk (time permitting, usually in summer).
Then witness Victoria’s largest colony of little penguins in the nightly Penguin Parade. As dusk falls, hundreds of little penguins splash out of the water on to the beach, making their way to their burrows. They feed at sea, and return to their burrows to mate, care for their young and to moult.
