    I am a resident of Melbourne but have not been to see the Penguin Parade for many years. This was an opportunity to go with family members. I loved it! I can see why, even to this day, it is a fantastic "must do" experience. What I found the best was the most friendliest and helpful staff!
    The whole evening was a joy and brought much happiness.
    The downfall of the evening was leaving the car park to find some people bag all their trash and dump it where their car was parked :(
    Take it back with you and dispose of the trash properly.

    It was wonderful walking the boardwalk with birds flying around us and seeing the gulls nesting. Natural, rugged landscape but so relaxing enjoying the walk then the Antarctic experience after. Lots of reading in the exhibition then finished off sitting watching the big screens highlighting life at the Antarctic. We spent about 2 hours in total here.

    This was our first stop at Phillip Island on our full day tour.
    We started with breakfast at the coffee shop which was lovely. We took a Smashed Avocado Toast and Eggs Benedict, followed by hot drinks and brownies. All very tasty (though slightly steep pricewise.....).
    Then we went for a walk through the traditional old farm with lots of exhibits to see and lots of things to learn (for all ages, by the way).
    Animals, flowers, machinery, working farm artefacts, all well explained by posters and local guides.
    Very Pleasant Place!! Lovely Morning!!

    Loved this. Great signage and I finally centre and we saw a good number of koala and it was excellent value for money. The only thing we didn't like was that we could not use cash which seemed weird and there was no really obvious signage about this. The koalas all looked very healthy and we saw one up close.

    This place is great to see it’s a wild untamed seascape which is so powerful you can hear sometimes feel its strength when your up on the boardwalk

    As a venue for MotoGP and World Super Bikes this circuit is a must see for motorcycle racing fans. The museum details the history of the circuit from the first car races to the modern day with the various participants / businesses involved in its development. The museum also has a good collection of racing motorcycles from previous years and details their associated riders. The experience is only let down by the limited view of the circuit itself.

    Really wonderful welcome for a birthday booking for six, including my elderly and frail mum. Great assistance with menu, dietary needs and advice about selection. The winery has lots of options for couples, family and friends groups (and functions), with plenty of seating, open grassy areas and fab views of the fields and beautiful Bass coast. The service - considered and knowledgeable - and food are top class, with good choice of sharing and grazing platters, delicious mains, choice of pizzas and salads, and tasty desserts. This place is an absolute treat!

    the road leading to pyramid rock is surrounded by farmlands

    keep a lookout for wallabies. they are either on the farm or nearby shrubs.

    once there, you get onto a boardwalk to the viewing platforms for pyramid rock.

    best visited during low tide to see the pyramid in full glory

    Access to this Zoo was restricted because of the Covid lockdown but it has bounced back. The kangaroos are often lethargic in the middle of the day, when the temperature is hottest. The flightless emus are the second-largest birds in the world, they are inquisitive and may approach you, but they are harmless. In the unlikely event that they peck you, don't worry, their bite is painless..

    Large family friendly beach. Nice clean waters. Red rocks are awesome to explore. Lots of shops and restaurants on the other side of the road.

    As with mist info centres, there was a comprehensive range of booklets and pamphlets. The staff were most informative when posed with our questions.
