Stunning views ar Churchill Island and House. Activities for young and old! Lovely to see the Old Amess House. Koala Sanctury just amazing for us tourists ( UK) who dont get to see Koala'a. We were very close and able to see them clearly as well as bird life and Wallabies! Penguin Parade- just so much excitement and anticipation and it paid off- 770 Penguins around our night. So wonderful to see them come in from the shore and waddle to their 'beds' for the night.

Just 90 minutes from Melbourne, discover Victoria's wildlife haven with this all-in-one pass! Witness penguins, koalas, seals, and wallabies in their natural habitats across 3 parks.

March of the Penguins

Philip Island is home to the world's largest penguin colony. Watch the amazing seabirds waddle home to their burrows from the ocean from viewing platforms and boardwalks. Maybe you'll even get a wave from a friendly penguin!

Koala kingdom

Stroll about tree-top boardwalks to watch koalas in their natural habitat. Walk through the woodlands and notice a multitude of birds, wallabies, and echidnas. With a variety of family-friendly activities in store for you, this is a great way to explore the lush native bushland and admire Australian wildlife in its natural element.

Island exploration

Wide-open spaces and ample fresh air let you wander Churchill Island in utter peace. Historical grounds and farming activities make up most of the island. Hike or bike along the beautiful bay trails, stopping to admire the wildlife from the bird-watching huts or unwind on one of the many relaxing decks. Feeling peckish? Grab a cup of coffee at one of the cafés. Want to go all in? Try your hand at blacksmithing, cow milking, sheep shearing, whip cracking, and more.
