Spring is a Festive time for Seniors on Phillip Island

Phillip Island Nature Parks is helping to celebrate Victorian Seniors Festival, an event held to honour seniors across the state, the contribution they make to their families and communities, and to encourage them to get out and participate. What better way to do this than with an exclusive Buy 1 Get 1 Free offer?

Phillip Island is currently teeming with Cape Barren goslings, lambs, calves, and even the penguins are preparing their burrows for their annual breeding season. Later this month we welcome home the masters of flight, the short-tailed shearwaters on their annual migration from Alaska.

There’s no better time to visit this spectacular wildlife island, and seniors can see it all with this exclusive Buy 1 Get 1 Free offer on the 4 Parks Pass by presenting their Seniors Cards at the Penguin Parade, Antarctic Journey, Koala Conservation Centre or Churchill Island between 8 September and 30 November.

Experience the magical march as the little penguins make their way home at the sunset Penguin Parade, then witness the excitement that spring brings as the male penguins do their very best to attract a suitable female with a raucous song and dance.

The Antarctic Journey invites you to immerse yourself in a virtual trip to the frozen continent, marvelling at the remarkable wildlife footage, taking in the spectacular soundscape, and learning about the wildlife that call Antarctica home and some of our brave explorers who dared to venture into this amazing land.

Take a leisurely stroll at the Koala Conservation Centre and see koalas face-to-face in their natural habitat from the tree top boardwalks. For bird lovers, witness over 100 species as they dart among the eucalypts or wade through the wetlands.

Just when you think you’ve had enough of Phillip Island’s natural beauty, there’s Churchill Island Heritage Farm. After exploring the historic homestead and delightful gardens, there is no better place to sit back and take in the magnificent views of Western Port than from the perfectly positioned café. Treat yourself to some delicious items from the Seniors Specials menu including Devonshire tea or a naughty but nice muffin and coffee, or perhaps indulge in a light lunch.

To take advantage of this exclusive offer, present your Seniors Card at any Nature Parks attraction between 8 September and 30 November to receive your Buy 1 Get 1 Free discount on the 4 Parks Pass.
