Go behind the scenes at the Penguin Parade and learn how rangers from Phillip Island Nature Parks are caring for sick and injured wildlife, including Phillip Island’s world-famous little penguins. Our hands on displays allow you to learn more about wildlife rehabilitation techniques, how rescuers handle an oil spill and the impacts of oil spills on wildlife.
Your ranger guide will also give you an insight into the daily lives of little penguins and the world-class research undertaken by the Nature Parks’ team of penguin researchers. Tour concludes with reserved front row seats to watch the penguins waddle ashore at sunset and head back to their sand dune burrows.
