Media Releases 2013

Posted on 18/07/2013 by Phillip Island Nature Parks

Step aside seagulls, there’s a new bird in Melbourne set to take over town.

Too classy for the gulls of McDonald’s car parks and so hipster they refuse to fly because flying is for ‘conformist aves brainwashed by the establishment’ – these birds are determined to ruffle a few feathers.

From July 21 to 27 a small army of well-dressed little penguins from Phillip Island are popping up to the big smoke and giving city slickers the chance to win the ultimate winter getaway to Daydream Island.

For your chance to win, find the Pop-Up Penguin about town, snap a picture and enter via the Phillip Island Nature Parks Facebook page.

Be on the lookout for the Pop-Up Penguins hanging out in the coolest café’s, exploring Melbourne’s famous sites and squeezing in a spot of shopping around town – clues to their whereabouts will be posted daily on Facebook.

Grand prize includes a trip for two to Daydream Island Resort and Spa, including five nights accommodation, daily buffet breakfast and return airfares and ferry transfer. Each entry also goes in the daily draw to win an iPad Mini.
